This is on the 'Ilha Deserta' (Desert Island), part of a nature reserve next to Faro airport, Portugal. Took a boat out across the water ways and wetlands to this Island. Saw some waders and other interesting birds (e.g. Curlew, Whimbrel, Turnstone, Grey Plover, Oyster Catcher, Crested Lark). A great day out!! Website:

This picture has a lot of great things to look at. Beautiful sky, a lighthouse, interesting little buildings, the grasses, and the wood in the foreground, which appears to have some junk mixed in with it. In my humble opinion, the only drawback, is that the stuff in the foreground is too prominent in the shot. It takes away from all the beauty that lies beyond. All said, I still love it.

I believe there is an underlying statement in the photo. The old timbers in the foreground contrasting with the new construction in the background. The ruggedness of the timbers adds to the beauty of the statement. Removing the modern debris from around the timbers would make the photo more impactful.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain
