Hidden Madeira by Bas Meelker
Porto Moniz on the north-western tip of Madeira: a small village with a couple of hotels and restaurants, best known for its natural swimming pools. Janneke and I have chosen this small village to be our base the next 11 days, away from all the hustle and bustle of the large tourist centres. We have just arrived in the village and we’re scouting our surroundings for photo opportunities.
It turns out that our scouting doesn’t take too long. As we walk into the area of the natural swimming pools, which are free to enter after 1900 hours, I’m welcomed by literally dozens of great compositions – everywhere I look there are rocks, leading lines and foreground interest. If the rest of Madeira proves to be as good as this, 11 days on the island will be far too short!
