[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Atlantic Sea. 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.

The sky at sunset looks like a painting in your picture, Maciej.
What eloquent colours!

Bonjour Maciej,
Je préfère cette version du coucher du soleil à ta précédente sur le même sujet car la belle lumière y fait resplendir de splendides couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Maciej
Stunning sunset, with beautiful shades in the sky and reflections on the water. Well done.


Hello Maciej

Your series of sunset photos over the sea are very beautiful,
you have choose a very fine POV and the way you framed
the sun in the image, lovely light and contrast between
warm and cold color tones, TFS


Hi Maciej,

The wideness of the sea is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the clouds. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.
