Two Rocks – Different in location and atmosphere

A reef  at the far end of Praia da Luz beach known as Rocha Negra, Black Stone.

The town Praia da Luz (“beach of light”) is in the Western Algarve, Portugal.

A small fishing village with massive limestone cliffs on eastern end of the village beach.  The ochre colour of the limestone is stunning on sunset and tidal water is giving you a great beach for walking beside  the massive cliffs, all the way to Rocha Negra.Praya da Luz and Rocca Negra

 The Dolomites, Italia

If you drive up Passo di Sella from the south, from Canazei, to Selva, to S Cristina and finally to Castelrotto you see the most spectacular scenery in the mountainous territory of the Dolomites. The colour of the Dolomites and reflection of the sun is something completely different compared to any other European alpine areas.
