Ten images today from the beautiful Algarve region of Portugal

IT’S the start of the New Year and the Algarve region of Portugal is bristling in colour.

Praia da Rocha, Portimao

Residents are still tending their gardens and enjoying the sunshine although it is time to wrap up a little. The occasional sunbather can still be spotted on the beach although it is more of a time for walking, golfing and sailing..

I hope you enjoy these pictures, taken early January, which are an attempt to catch the colour and vibrancy of the Algarve which still flourishes even at the darkest time of the year.

      Thanks Snowboy.
      That’s why I posted it, to show the difference in climate the further south you go.
