Douro Valley

Whenever Wonder Woman is in Europe, she would volunteer to take me on a road trip. Last April, we went to Douro Valley (a historic wine region in Portugal) for a few days, because of my love in port wine and our common interest in Portuguese cuisine.

It was a relaxing trip. We just drove around the valley, enjoying the sceneries, and trying out various food and wine tasting. At night, we stayed at pretty wine hotels in the same region. As usual, I went out at night to look for the milky way, and at dawn to see whether I could get any misty sunrise shots of the valley . I didn't have any luck with the night sky though as it was always cloudy at night. However, after days of waking up early, it finally got misty in the valley on the last morning, before we left for the airport.

The first shot is soooo gorgeous! I love that magical time of the beginning of the day and ending of the day where gold finds it's way across everything :) You have such great photos and I thank you for sharing them...along with your fun stories.

#12 is this from an overlook or how did you shoot that one? I really like that shot.
I see dirt roads. Were there also good paved roads through the region?
