Leaving El Caminito del Ray

Gougane Barra at Sunrise

Gougane Barra at Sunrise

Gougane Barra, where the River Lee rises and the location of a monastery Saint Finbarr built in the 6th century. A modern chapel, called St Finbarr’s Oratory dates back to 1903.

The image above is a HDR panorama of 9 photos merged together in Lightroom and is a result of a very early visit with Blarney Photography Club this morning. The spectacular light was totally worth getting up at 5am for!

The view from Quinta da Foz

The view from Quinta da Foz

One of the benefits of working from home at Automattic is meeting up with your team a few times a year in various parts of the world. Obviously that did not happen last year, won’t happen this year either and we had been playing a meetup for April or May last year but that didn’t work out.
In November 2019 I met my team in Porto, Portugal. During the week we had a day to relax so we did a tour of vineyards. After a lengthy drive we toured a couple, took a boat ride on the local river and had a nice meal in a local restaurant. The Quinta da Foz was the second vineyard we visited and it was wonderful. Old architecture and setting mixed with new technology to make wine.

Here’s the view from the road in front looking out on a tributary of the Douro River. It’s a beautiful part of Portugal.

Another one of the Roman Theatre. This time a daylight panorama. They don’t take kindly to people using a tripod so just put the camera on one of the steps and rotate it between shots..
