Photographer's Note

This is a detail of another quarry, this time in Montes Claros, not far from Borba. In this area it's possible to find many quarries with small lagoons inside, specially during the rain season. This is a reflection in one of them. Here we see the Marble of Estremoz that can be found in Estremoz and also in the area of other surrounding towns like Vila Viçosa, Borba, Alandroal and Sousel - together they form the Marble Zone. From this region the marble is exported to everywhere around the world.
