Portugal Ermida de Alcame

by JOAO BRANCO

The Hermitage of Nossa Senhora de Alcamé

In my dear home country, Portugal, we have beautiful natural landscapes, breathtaking seashores, but sometimes it’s also possible to get a really unique contrast between minimal human presence and the awesomeness of natural phenomena. I shot this small church, lost near Lisbon, back in 2018. It provided me the perfect opportunity to catch a different night landscape from what I'm used to doing actually. It was extremely dark that night, perfect to catch the stars. Clouds are usually the "enemy" here but on this day I think it was quite the opposite...Simple things are the best sometimes. ;) ⁠
