Praia da Ursa
This beautiful beach under the cliff is the westernmost tip of the Eurasian landmass. Being there is... unforgettable. The mystical Ursa - Latin for "female bear" - has remained largely untainted, isolated, protecting its virgin nature with dangerous cliffs and unstable rocks, discouraging us from getting too close to her. Yes, the name makes sense to me.
I traveled to Lisbon, Portugal, in June 2012 for an exhibition in Colorida Art Gallery (Costa do Castelo 63, Lisbon), founded in 2007. You can see the catalog here.
Moments to remember
I had to place this picture here because if I didn't, friends wouldn't have believed that we climbed up and down this rocky cliff. It was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime adventure with Miguel, Gianna & Marko, and I loved every second of it.
The end of the world
I don't think I will ever find as magical a place as this.
A rocky mountain cliff cuts you off from the expanse of land to the east. To the west, the vast ocean stretches away, its waves crashing and then receding, as if trying to pull you in. You can't help wondering what's out there. The view surely forced Columbus to see what is there beyond the edge.
