Here's another abandoned village, situated in the centre, far away from the abandoned houses I've posted before. There are many nowadays. This one is situated in the Lousã Mountain, where the mountain villages were made of schist, in perfect harmony with nature. In this case, it's situated near the Ceira River, whose banks were used for agriculture. A good part of these villages have been abandoned already. In most cases it takes a long walk to reach them, as they cannot be reached by car.

I like the POv you chose to take this picture. The grass covered path runs up the hill which makes the composition more interesting. The photo benefits as well from the plenty of bushes which liven up the wholeness. Good colors and nice light management.
Thanks for sharing

Une perspective montante intéressante de ce vieux mur, on a envie de découvrir ce qui se passe au fond de ce sentier.
Intéressante lumière incidente

J'aime beaucoup cette composition qui donne envie d'aller plus loin sur ce beau petit sentier qui semble monter directement vers le ciel. J'aime beaucoup l'effet du mur sur la droite.

Une photo très intéressante avec cette surprenante lumière semblant émerger au loin et qui semble éclairer le mur de la maison.

une belle composition, l'effet de la lumière dans le ciel est superbe et complète bien les ruines en pierres.

Great POV on the abandoned village, nice contrast between the green grass and the blue sky. I like the graphics of clouds that give depth to the image. Well done!

The light rays and cloud lines emerging from behind the hill are really inviting to continue this path between the houses of the abandoned village.
A great picture announcing adventures in the unknown.
Best regards, Paul

Thanks to your trek we get to see this beautiful picture of the abandoned village. Good choice of POV to show the upward path to the village. I like the nice warm light bringing out the textural details of the house so well. Good contrast between the green grass and the blue sky. Love the breezy cloud formations as well. Seeing your photo I have an eerie feeling about this place and would like to know the reason for this village being abandoned. Great shot, thanks for sharing.

ieri avevo esaurito le critiche e mi sono dovuto astenere dal commentare questa foto, ma i colori, la composizione e la solita tua eccellente tecnica di ripresa che esalta nitidezza e colore non possono essere fatte passare con indifferenza.
Una delle tue ultime più belle anche per la scelta di un POV ben riuscito.
Ciao e buona giornata

Bonjour Adores, j'aime beaucoup cette photo avec ces vieilles pierres et ces rayons de lumière qui émergent à l'horizon. Une belle capture!

many good and beautiful photos in recent days in your gallery. It is nice that you show us parts of Portugal, which slowly disappearing That's how you, in the same time, keep them forever.

lindo esta ângulo. estas casas e palheiros se parecem já com as casas dos meus antepassados (sem a cal). muito bonitas as ruínas e a paisagem rural ao redor. um local cheio de fantasmas.
