Hello Jean Philippe,
I love Portugal and your series from this country gives us excellent view in it.
A less known by tourists places can be also very interesting,like this one.
Well captured with nicely captured light&shade areas.It makes the composition much more powerful.
Have a nice sunday

Salut Jean Philippe,
une belle lumière sur ce joli petit sanctuaire et une agréable montée ombragée qui permet d'y accéder. Un très beau contraste entre ombre et lumière. Superbe.
