Photo taken in Alcochete. The boat on the picture it's the frigate Alcatejo.

Constructed in Aveiro, in 1940, under the name of "Cândido Abílio", the "Alcatejo" - typical boat of the river Tejo - was acquired by the City council of Alcochete in 1987.

The 12 of August of 1989, the City council proceeded to the inauguration of the boat, giving it with the name that today exhibits.

Constituting a good example of preservation of the cultural patrimony, the "Alcatejo" comes carrying through, since July of 1989, strolls in the Tejo - throughout all the marginal zone of Alcochete until Lisbon -, providing, beyond the pleasant tourist trips of recreation and leisure, the knowledge of the characteristics of the old boats of long ago and the practical ones of navigation.

Decorated with traditional flowers, reasons and colored bars, the "Alcatejo", fully decorated, it's one of the main atractions of the night Procession for Sea (and Land) in Honor of Ours Lady of the Life, that occurs in the traditional Parties of the Barrete Verde e das Salinas of Alcochete.

Hope you enjoy,
Regards from Portugal,

Very beautiful Antonio,
The gradient of the sky is just superb with the boat's mast leaning into the composition giving the comp some angles/dynamics. Very excellent colors.


Well capture.

Very nice picture with sharp details and lovely blue colour.

Apart from the obviously beautiful ship, what stands out for me is the POV, the way you follow the mast up, up, always up, and finally have the bright red/yellow flag in the deeply saturated blue sky - THAT is for me the amazing thing about this photo!

Superb graphical composition against the rich blue sky! I love the way you make the mast stand out and lead our eyes to the very top. Wonderful work! Very well done!

love the comp in this well taken beautiful image, it's crisp, colourful and strong, (*_*)

i remember this boat together with the other bigger boat in you other post :)

very nice colors in the shot, i would prefer the photo with 2 boats but this is still good

Um trabalho de grande dimensão e cores sensacionais!

This is a common and simple picture but colours and high details helps to build a very attractive and pleasant image.
Very well done !
