Sintra at first light

Everyone and everything is asleep when the first sunrays hit the land. Can silence be photographed?

  1. Sintra was gorgeous when I was there for two days last year. Nice shots!

      Thanks, Trevor.
      Being a local may influence my judgment but… Indeed, I think it is gorgeous too. However, again as a local, I sometimes don’t value it, as much as I should. The neighbor’s grass…

    Na 4ª foto, é fantástico o contraste da luz em primeiro plano com o fundo escuro da serra: dá uma ilusão de dia-noite, fazendo-me lembrar o “L’empire des lumières” de René Magritte…Gosto muito!

      Agora que mencionas, a serra parece mesmo estar ainda mergulhada na noite… Sintra tem muitos ângulos esplêndidos mas é-lhes difícil (para mim) fazer justiça através da fotografia. Obrigado por passares… e comentar!
