Alqueva's August Sky - Portugal, Alentejo


On a night showered by the Persoid meteors, the Milky Way and occasional slow winds made for a far better subject to photograph. The region is worth a visit for those interested in astrophotography.

I've seen your portfolio and you are amazing! Are you Portuguese? 
I've never had the opportunity to see a sky like this when I was in Alentejo. I want to go back just by looking at it!

Hi! Thank you for your kind comment! I am Portuguese, and that is indeed a starry sky that you can see in Alentejo. You might want to google Dark Sky Reserve Alqueva to know more about it.

Thanks! This was taken last weekend on the southeastern region of Alentejo, Portugal, near the Alqueva dam lake, which I believe to be the largest artificial lake in Europe today.
