Photographing Sunrise in Porto

To celebrate the International Day of Photography, the Instituto Portugues de Fotografia (IPF) had several activities planned over the weekend of 16-19 August. Fernanda and I, having both taken a course at IPF last year, decided to sign up and join in on the adventure of photographing the sunrise from the river Douro hosted by IPF and sponsored by Canon. The weather didn’t cooperate with us, as we got some heavy fog, but we managed to get some great photos regardless of this.

This is the photo I printed out on A4 with the idea to frame it.

Our itinerary was 4am meet at IPF in downtown Porto, then we had a small introduction and explanation of the plans for the rest of the morning. We started walking from the IPF down to the wharf on the other side of the river at Cais de Gaia where at 5.45am we got on a boat that took us all the way to where the river joins the ocean and then back up the river past several bridges before arriving back at the wharf. We were then served breakfast at 7am before making the trek up the hill back to the IPF where we were allowed to print out photos.
