Here are some of my favorite photos from Europe and first shots from Lisbon
Lisbon at Sunrise
Another beautiful ruin here at sunrise...we walked along this golf course (which I think has like 27 holes?) yesterday morning and saw all kinds of old ruins scattered everywhere. My friend Rene even found a golf ball up here when he climbed to the top!
This is the stunning mountaintop Pena Palace in Portugal. We arrived here before sunrise and walked all through a massive forest park to try to find a good place to take a photo. After this, we found out way to the palace itself for a wander... I'll share those photos soon!
Lisbon, you were looking amazing last night! The glowing lights of the city centre made for a great post-sunset photo opportunity.
My New Assistant
Here's a photo of my new tech assistant, Tane Gent who is joining us on our tour across Europe and all the photo walks. He's been running around The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company Penha Longa Resort here (where we are currently staying, close to Sintra, Portugal), doing everything from charging up 7 different kinds of batteries to flying the 2nd quadcopter to fixing Curtis' tripod with super glue. Thanks Tane!
The perfect reflections of Portugal
This was taken on our first day here in Lisbon. We had just the right combination of perfect weather and perfect views.
Santuário da Peninha
This is the amazing Santuário da Peninha here near the Penha Longa Resort, where we stayed all morning all the way through sunrise. I think we've woken up at 5:30 every single day... not my favorite thing, but it's always worth it! Took this one with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro Plus. That machine and software is still a little buggy, but when it works great, it works great!
