Photographer's Note

Here it is another one that I hesitated much in posting. It was shot on the same night of my first nocturne panorama 'Coimbra at night'. It was quite a long drive home after some days working on the North of Portugal, but I couldn't waste the almost unique opportunity of passing these places alone with no hurry to get to my destination (home). Sadly it is forbidden to stop at highways, because the view is great from the highway that passes through the hill that lies on the other side of the valley.

Obidos is quite well represented in TE (hey David, why don't you come back? ;-), which isn't much of a surprise, because it is a rather scenic village that doesn't seem to have changed much in at least 500 years. It was also the subject of some of my earliest posts in TE.

I had no success in putting off that excess of green, no matter the combination of colour temperature and colour levels I tried. To get a better exposure, I used the same technique of the other night shots of Coimbra, which I explained (I hope...) in the note of the post of S.Clara.

Location (latitude, longitude): 39.36,-9.1563

This probably is my last post this month, as I am leaving for Dominican Republic, where I'll meet our TE colleague Emile. The simple idea of holidays is always very pleasant, but these ones are even more welcome, unexpectedly coming as a deserved reward after a non-stop marathon of work that lasted more than two weeks (the unexpected thing isn't the trip, which I have booked in May, but the surge of excess work).

See you later, my friends.
