Pico do Arieiro

Hello everyone!

Long time no see! Sorry that it’s been more than a month since my last photo! I’m pretty sure you can guess why, but in case you can’t, i’ll tell you: That photo challenge drove me nuts! To the point that i started doubting my photos. I started thinking ” is this photo good, or am i posting it just to get through the day?” and to a person that wants his photos to be awesome, this isn’t really a good thing. So the challenge is off, and i’m not going to try another one of these any time soon! I will try to post every once in a while when i have good stuff to post, but not every day!

So without further a do-do, here’s a new photo:Pico-do-Arieiro

Taken at Pico do Arieiro, it is a peak that’s 1818 meters high. It’s a pretty awesome place and I have more cool photos from this place that will be posted soon!

Hope you like it! πŸ˜€

  1. Hello Diogo, good to see you back. Your photography is so amazing and you should never doubt your work or indeed your skills as an artist. Sometimes you just need a break to recharge and you will soon become inspired again. Great photo that you have shared, I thought a place to dry your clothes at first πŸ™‚


  2. Super awesome photo Matey!!! I know the struggle… I’ve been off for a long time again, now trying to get back on track! I thought i had gathered many good shots, now that i see them before i post them, i don’t like them that much! Hahaha!


    • Hi there me matey Alex, how are you doing?? πŸ˜€
      Haha same here, sometimes i go out and take tons of photos and when i check them on the computer i’m like ” What the hell is all this crap?? Who used my camera?? Wait, it was me!! Why did i get out of bed today, whyyyyyy!!!!” πŸ˜€

      How is Vienna treating you? πŸ˜€


  3. Good decision about the challenge. Do what feels good, not what is forced. You chose a good image to return with. The Tiebtan Prayer Flags are a perfect adornment for the top of that peak.


What do you think? Let's hear it! :)
