Photographer's Note

Risking to be boring, here is another photo taken on the same place of my earlier post.

With all of them, I am hoping to show you all how beautiful can be this region in Spring time.

Apart from a slight increase on brighness and on sharpness to compesate the efect of shrinking, it is just like it came out of the camera. Not even a pixel cropped.

Ribeira de Nisa is a tributary of river Tejo (Tagus) and it's just a small river that flows from the hills near Portalegre (Serra de S.Mamede).
Nisa is a small town, about 5 Km from this place, P da Serra a tiny village 3 Km away and Senhora da Gra鏰 a small country church that stands on the top of the hill on the left upper side of the photo.

The grass and flowers are wild, not cultivated, and it's easy to see how one of the main activities of the region is growing sheeps, that are used to produce meat and milk to make delicious cheese.

The trees are holm oaks (Quercus rotundifolia), cork oaks (Quercus suber) and olive trees (Olea europaea).

Nisa is a small town, about 5 Km from this place, P da Serra a tiny village 3 Km away and Senhora da Gra鏰 a small country church that stands nearly behind the camera.

As allways, critiques and comments, either bad or good, are welcome. Don't be shy telling what you think, as that is much of the fun of TE.
