Desert shores, shore desert

Step out of the National road after Cascais (Portugal) and enjoy the desert landscapes in front of the Atlantic Ocean

Pictures shot at the beach dunes of Guincho

The sea gives … the sea takes.

Not only swimming and walking at the beach. When the Ocean takes the beloved ones, there is no else than shores to leave flowers in their memory.

The fresh flowers on the beach you see in half of the pictures were for the burial of three unlucky fishermen, drown in front of Adraga shores, close to Sintra, Portugal. Click each picture to magnify.

And when it starts raining on the beach …

and you have to turn back and pick up wife and daughter

DSC_9968 DSC_9977

and the table you reserved will be left to the rain

and seagulls have a shower to wash the salt away

that’s the moment to leave surf and wet suit and have a game on the empty beach! Pictures shot in front of Forte de São Julião da Barra with D800 + 50 mm or 70-200 mm on the beach of Carcavelos (Cascais). Click to enlarge



We all ride in a yellow eléctrico de Lisboa !

When you arrive in Lisbon, don’t miss a fast paced, clanking ride on a yellow eléctrico!

Find your way to Campo do Ourique (end station) and choose a comfy window seat.

Enjoy the ride back to the city center, where these trams get fully packed.

DSC_0089 DSC_0098

The tram network, first established in 1901, covers all hot spots of Lisbon center.

Narrow streets and fast downhills included!

Not all yellows are elèctricos de Lisboa: a few pics of the Elevador da Bica and Glória (funicular) above here.

How to merge full-res pictures for producing up to 50-picture-wide stitched-panorama

Click each panorama to open it in a new tab and click it again to view it 100% – each picture is 768 px h x several thousands w px


Above, a 50 picture stitched panorama: click it to open in a new tab and click it again to see it at 100%. This huge view spans from the Kleiner Myhten peak in caton Schwyz (left, 1811 m.s.l.) to mount Pilatus behind Lucerne (right, 2,128 m.s.l.). The mountains of at least 5 cantons are visible: can you spot the antenna on the Titlis peak?


Above, a 21 picture stitched panorama shot with the Nikon 70-200 mm pointing south at the Alpine border between Canton Graubünden and Italy


Above, a 12 picture stitched panorama shot direction lake Lucerne


Finally, a 6 picture stitched panorama shot with the Nikon 50 mm from Rigi Kulm towards Rigi Scheidegg.

With less than 16GB memory, merging a panorama made out of more than 10 pictures can be a problem with Hugin. Especially with pictures of 36 MP resolution like with Nikon D800. A solution comes from downsizing the pictures either to a) 5000 x 3333 px, for panorama stitches made out of max 20 pictures or b) 1600 x 1067 px, for panoramas up to 50 pictures. Here above you have panoramic views from Mount Rigi, “The Queen of mountains”, a 1,798 meter high peak in Switzerland.
