[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A stunning beach, typical fishermen houses and steep cliffs over a bright blue sea have made this fishing town become a popular holiday resort, mainly due to its traditional character.
Fishermen can still be seen wearing checkered shirts and black trousers, and their wives seven layers of petticoats: you can watch them mending nets or drying fish on the beach.

O Sítio (the Site), high on a cliff above the town which can be reached by a funicular that climbs 110 metres (120 yards), leads to the tiny sanctuary of the Ermida da Memória: according to legend, this was where the Virgin Mary saved a local nobleman, who was chasing a deer, and his horse from falling off the cliff, envolved in a sea mist, in 1182.

Hi Ana,

What a wonderful oceanview, I like those different tones of blue. Colours look beautiful, compostion is great.
And this picture proves that clouded skies make very lovely views. Thanks for sharing my friend and have a nice sunday :-)

Greetings, Nel

Hello friend,
You have some wonderful views to the Atlantic from your place, Ana!
What is awesome here is how the clouds filter the light through just in the horizon, creating a wonderful effect...
Simple but effective composition, I think I prefer this one to the TE version as you include some land here!

Hello Ana,
Beautiful seascape.I liked POV,colors,lighting,framing and composition a lot.Excellent work my friend!

Hi Ana
Belle composition pour ce paysage spectaculaire. La trouée du soleil dans les nuages est remarquable et inhabituelle par sa couleur et sa forme.
Bravo et au revoir...JP

Ola Ana!
You share with us a seascape that is long to remember for its colors ant overall compo.

strong and moody shot..the central horizon which is a sort of debateable area for sky or land...works!!
you got both and combined them with a strong dark image in the lower left to anchor the shot
thats a brilliant horizon blaze which also controls the mid section of the view..
the clouds seem to be viewing the scene as well through the 'eye'

Ola Ana! Wonderful line of horizon. Very good colors. Blue is the color! Beautiful composition. Nice effect. Very nice. Saudacoes!
