A place called Ponta Do Sol, west of the Maderian capital, Funchal. My compact camera is not ideal for fast photography, with lens speed and light capture limitations, so this is a first for me. Always more fun when you are actually there. These waves were very big when they hit the rock and exploded everywhere. The noise was incredible.

I didn't have enough time to leave messages for all my Caedes-friends' posts in the last few weeks. So now I only write this comment on the BEST pics. This is one of them.

It is known that there is an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the product of a deranged imagination.
