Contrasts

 (Click to enlarge)

The above photo shows Carcavelos Beach last week when temperatures almost hit 30ºC


Same beach this week: thunderstorms, pouring rains and dropping temperature to about 15ºC

Ah the beach! I love both photos!

We have 5 guests from Brazil in Eagan through Rotary International - You'll see them on my blog today!

The weather just can't make up its mind.
Big up and down changes here too last week.

This is an interesting concept of the varying moods of the sea. I will try this in the future on our beach.

Marvelous captures of the contrasts on the same beach! Love them both! Wonderful old fort! Always enjoy fun on a sunny beach! Have a great weekend, Happy Easter!

Crazy weather makes nice contrast photos.

I think I'd prefer to be at the beach when it was sunny and warm, as in the first shot! The second photo, while quite dramatic, does not exhibit the features I look for in a beach! :-)

So beautiful in every weather.

Babzy said...

nice idea to compare the hot and cold scene ... both are interesting :)

A pair of amazing images. Almost the same weather here: a few days ago people went to the beach, now are wearing their coats again...

C'est le yo-yo climatique ! J'aime bien la deuxième photo, même si j'aime mieux le temps chaud ...

Beautiful contrasts!

It was misty in the mountains today but we headed west where the sun shone and we had a delicious warm 20C. I think 30c is too hot.

All those Brits who headed for the sun in Spain and Portugal over Easter would have done better staying at home!

I would prefer the nice warm and sunny beach. I would just like to see some sun around here. MB
