Photographer's Note

Hi all! I saw this photo taken by Filipe, and consequently i decided to put this one of the same place, but taken from the other side of the mountain and in another station of the year (Spring)! It's location is in Serra da Estrela, in the road that connects Torre to Covilhã (near Cântaro Magro). I took this photo from a near road that has this excellent (in my opinion) and privileged view of this place! As you can see, there is a cross "planted" near this place and when i arrived, there where those pink flowers on it! Honestly, i don't know why the cross is there, but due the the dangerous origin of the mountain i believe that something happened there to someone, also due the a plate placed near this place in homage to someone died near it in an accident...

By the way, there is a legend from a lake in Serra da Estrela that says that it contains a connection to the sea (i'm not sure if it is this one but i'll try to accurate it, but of course i won't try to find that connection by myself eheh :P )

Changes made to original photo:
The original one was a little dark one and with some "dead colors", so in Photoshop i changed the Shadow by 40%, to make the shadow of the mountain on the right a little more brighter and i raised to color intensity to 120, in order to have a greener view and to enhance the pink color of the flowers!

Hope you enjoy it!
Best regards and see you soon
