Photographer's Note

"The fishermen’s village of Porto Covo rouses strong emotions (there is a famous Portuguese popular song about it). With its whitewashed houses, Porto Covo is a living example of the union between Alentejo’s traditional architecture and the “Pombalino” style (XVIIIth century). The vast maritime landscapes, visible almost from every place in the village, add to the scene a unique charm. Arriving place to enjoy seaside pleasures, Porto Covo can also be a departing point to visits inland."

It had been another day of sufocating heat, like the ones before. The rock formations I've seen during the day (yes, it's my summer hollidays and beach time), made me come back by the end of the day. By that time, the low tide revealed the green moss covering the rocks, usually bellow the water line. The foreground was chosen.

The tall rocks in the background seemed doomed to get the contrast against the strong green, and made me think about a castle, protecting this heavenly beach. The sky had no clouds (again), so less interesting, that's why it's almost gone. Of course that the red cast is because of the sunset (the sun had gone a few minutes ago).

Finally, think it's interesting the fact that the green rocks look like aiming in the right direction, and the ones in the background the opposite direction...it made me look over and over the scene before and after the shot.

Hope you enjoy as much looking as I enjoyed shooting.
