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.

What a surreal and beautiful scene this is! Those rocks are amazing, and doubly so that you captured them with this artistic reflection that reminds me of the work of Monet. Such perfect light too. Beautiful shot, thanks for sharing

io abito a pochi chilometri dalle cave di marmo di Carrara e sono abituato a vedere queste pareti tagliate, ma nella tua foto c'è un favoloso riflesso che completa l'immagine in modo splendido.

L'image est un peu énigmatique au premier abord mais ces roches et leurs reflets donnent un effet graphique très intéressant.

A fabulous play of light and reflection.
Great daylight enhanced the view over the smooth water surface, superbly collected.

The same impression as for a photo from yesterday!

These quarries really provide interesting views. Although generally similar they all seem to have their own range of colours and light conditions. This is another spectacular composition.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage serré sur les pierres multicolores de la carrière qui offrent des reflets exceptionnels sur les eaux calmes. Un bel ensemble très graphique.

Very cool shot, with the reflection creating a wonderful abstract of the shapes and colors of the rocks. You chose a nice frame here too, putting the water line at dead center; symmetry, but it's thrown off nicely by the reflection. thanks!

j'aime beaucoup l'effet graphique et les couleurs. La lumière donne de beaux reliefs à la pierre et les reflets sur l'eau sont superbes. Une composition très artistique.
Bon weekend, amicalement,

Hello Ana - Your series of photographs taken in the quarry really appeals to me. This one is super with the blocky shapes and their reflections having a wonderful abstract quality and a painterly look.

Very interesting composition where the beauty of the marble stones is shown to its best advantage. The graphic nature of the image is quite obvious and well presented here. The vertical lines along with the reflection give it an abstract quality. I like the effective lighting, the beautiful colours and textures you captured here. Very well done.

Olá, amiga Ana,
en esta pequeña serie de la cantera, he dudado sobre cuál de las fotos valorar, debido a su belleza y su potencia visual.
Finalmente he escogido ésta, en la que admiro su grafismo, el efecto geométrico de las rocas, y especialmente sus reflejos sobre el agua.
Has creado una imagen poderosa y muy atractiva, con una luminosidad especial.

Nice that an ugly quarry can be converted into a beautiful abstract work of art as depicted here. Wonderful repetition of shapes, colors and patterns reinforced by the superb symmetrical reflections. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Have a nice week!

Wow, an image so full of intrigue...I wouldn't know what to make of it without your note...but I would still find it incredibly fascinating! Certainly a tale of two halves, but ones that work well with each other to create an abstract result. A very artful and creative composition which plays right into the strengths of its colors and textures. I could easily see this as some form of modernist art that we would find in a gallery. Very well envisioned and displayed. Bravo! Enjoy the new day ahead. All the best.

Marvelous... Excellent... Impossible to tell something in few words. I loved this reflection shot, and enjoyed it a lot. TFS.

Firstly Happy Easter!.
Beautiful photography with a well operated effect. It is imaged and well documented. You have taken advantage of this place brilliantly. Congratulations!.

This is an eye-catcher!
The vertical format was a good choice for these repeating rectangles of colours, lights and reflections.
Have a great day,

Another almost-abstract photo with beautiful patterns, colors and reflections. An exquisite entry, congratulations and TFS!

you have perfectly well realized the artistic potential of these interesting reflections! Very clever idea and an outstanding realization. The colors are really wonderful. What I like best is the interesting composition. My compliments!
ourania (25508) 2014-05-14 8:18
what an interesting composition using the graphic patterns of the quarry and their reflections. I like very much the full vertical frame and the juxtaposition of the geometrical patterns to their reflections. A wonderful play of textures and colours, you managed light and contrast very effectively. A captivating artistic picture, absolutely natural too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
