Six word Saturday


The Algarve produces some beautiful shadows.



img_5931Just wandering, as I like to do, in the Eastern Algarve, I found myself chasing shadows in the area of Lota.  The combination of lagoon, beach and boardwalk is an enticing one.  I loved the delicacy of the shell patterns, and a chance find- a sea urchin.


The Weekly Photo Challenge has confused me a little by moving to a Wednesday.  But I didn’t let it cast a Shadow on my week.  Well, perhaps one or two!  A little like the six words that I like to share with you here on a Saturday.

Apologies in advance to those of you who walk with me on Mondays.  Next week there will be no blue sky.  Have a great weekend!



  1. When there is sun, there are shadows. 🙂 Today, I was lucky as well, following my own shadow on a hike in the sunny hills of Southern California. Tomorrow is our last day here, just when the grey skies decided to turn blue.


  2. Just one big enormous shadow today! Have arrived back to heavy rain, although I fortunately missed yesterday’s weather which resulted in flooding in the far east Algarve 😦 Apparently will be better by end of week, hope so.


      1. Fingers crossed it improves for you on Wednesday!
        I feel so sorry for all the holidaymakers who arrived this weekend for the first half term. Think those whose half term is next week will have a much better week.

  3. Loved those wooden boardwalks in Portugal and your photos bring back great memories. I did a whole series of paintings based on shadows ~ I like the way you captured the strong shadow from the railings and the more delicate wire one.


  4. Ahhhh Jo that boardwalk photo reminded me of hiking the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey. I miss it so much! Thanks for these beautiful images, and I look forward to following in your wonderful shadows.


  5. The beautiful boardwalk calls to me. I love the way you captured the shadow at the edge of the seashells. Shadows add to the warmth of the photo. I’m cold today…would love to be out in the sunshine! 🙂
