[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nazaré beach, with its mild climate and natural beauty, has one of the most ancient traditions connected to fishing in Portugal. The long sandy half-moon shaped beach, which is also the town’s sea front, is known for its grandeur and for the brightly-coloured awnings that decorate the white sandy beaches, contrasting with the blue of the water. This is the beach in Portugal that retains the more colourful fishing traditions, and it’s not uncommon to encounter fishmongers who still wear the traditional seven skirts. At the end of the afternoon on Saturdays during the summer months, don’t miss sitting on the seawall to watch the fascinating “Arte Xávega” (Drag Nets) spectacle, in which nets laden with fish arrive from the sea and the women scream out their wares for sale. If you don’t understand the words, don’t worry – they use codes that often only they know.

Hi Maciej,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The wideness of the ocean is giving depth to the composition. THe sunset id giving nice colors to the sky. It is a relaxing way to finish the day.

Bonjour Maciej,
La lumière n'est pas suffisante pour valoriser suffisamment les différentes couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
