    This, the South-Westernmost point of Europe, can be a wild place at the best of times and is wracked by Atlantic storms frequently in Winter. Even on a good day, when I visited, the North-west winds were gusting to 30 knots and it was difficult to stand still enough to take photographs. On a quiet day the inevitable Atlantic swell gives the 75 metre high cliffs a hard time, so dramatic shots are always a possibility.

    Looking towards the Cape from the South East, fairly "sheltered" waters downwind of the point, believe it or not there were four surfers dwarfed in these breakers when the shot was taken:

    E-M5    LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-150mm    14mm    f/5.6    1/1600s    ISO 200

    Looking South East from the Cape, Punta de Sagres in the distance:

    E-M5    LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-150mm    18mm    f/5.6    1/1250s    ISO 200

    Looking towards the Punta de Sagres from South East of the cape:

    E-M5    LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-150mm    21mm    f/5.6    1/2500s    ISO 200

    A closer view of wave action on the cliffs:

    E-M5    LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-150mm    109mm    f/5.6    1/2500s    ISO 200

    The aftermath, these ledges are often the haunt of rod and line fisherman:

    E-M5    LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-150mm    109mm    f/5.6    1/2500s    ISO 200
