Stone stairs into the sea


A story behind: This was one of these spring storms that in the late afternoon approached from the sea giving sudden but short splash of rain and then proceeded eastwards leaving a tail of heavy dark clouds behind.

My son Lucas and I went that afternoon to Granja beach. We both set a gear and Lucas took some photos of the storm, me and the stairs ( above ).

This might have been one of the last moments to take photos with interesting light and clouds before the 6 month-long period of summer clear skies comes to Porto.
