Ericeira is a fishing village 50 km (31 miles) northeast of Lisbon, 25 km (16 miles) from Sintra and 10 km (6 miles) from Mafra.

It has the Atlantic Ocean as an eternal companion. Out of this relationship, the sun has given the best of its light and an ocean of traditions has been born.

The hospitality of its people, the harmony of the "old village" with its narrow cobblestone streets, characteristic housing, singular monuments, the sea, the fishing, the cuisine, the bold Atlantic views and the multiplicity of cultural programming interlace here in a grand way to welcome its visitors... (*)
.... did you get the feeling?

Now with summer coming, my feet take me back to these places before the crowds. Lucky me

Ola Jose! Wonderful cityscape. Good POV, very good long perspective. Fantastic colours. Ericeira is wonderful! Saude!

Bom dia Jose,

Excelente perspectiva da praia. Boa claridade e bonitas cores.

HI Jose
The colors are spectacular but what I love the most is the reflection on the sand and water.
You are the second person to show such beauty with long exposures, the other was Tracer and you both do great work.

I like your photo very much Jose'. The composition is very well done even the colors seem to (or purposely) have been set up, like the blue colors of the street guardrail, the lamp post the sea and the sky. The high contrast lighting goes very well with the photo theme. The guardrail and lamp post on the left framing it is the clincher.

Your saturation is very high but somehow you got it subdued and under control.

Hi Jose, There is a strong and elegant surreal feeling about this seaside view. It is reminiscent of a Bugle painting. The colours and effects you manage to create are always refreshing to see. Good result. TFS. Murray.
