Situated a few kilometres far from Alcácer do Sal, Carrasqueira is a small but really well known village (specially among photographers), thanks to its quay formed by many walkways built on irregular wooden stilts, that has been built in the 50's/60's of the 20th century, to allow fishermen to reach their boats during the high and also during the low tide.
This is the silhouette of a very little part of the quay, some boats and also one of the many huts that the fishermen have built there, on stilts, to keep their belongings, such as fishing nets.

I like very much the silhouette of the posts and stilts as irregular as they are. On 21-22 August we were in Lisbon, where we took our own walking tour with Delilah and Amelia. It would have been wonderful to see you, but it was a working day for you.

nice the sunset snapshot with the last rays of the sun to 'paint' with this way the sky and darkening the foreground of the scene.I like the light management as the silhouettes that create a beautiful optical effect.

interesting sunset shot. Like the silhouetted parts with its reflection. Interesting composition with nice effect.

Cheers for a fine photojob done here: the silhouette of the wooden old pier well shown against the golden sunset tone.
Maybe a bit of backlight effect from the sunset, not a grand issue - the photo is super.

A silhueta das estacas ficou muito boa com as belas cores do pôr-do-sol de fundo, e também muito boa a nitidez! A tonalidade e textura da água também estão uma beleza! Lindo trabalho!

Nice light on the horizon, well captured and composed with these wooden stilts, tfs.

Gorgeous photo of the fishing village at sunset, the colors are warm with rich tone. The village transpire a charming quality of simple wooden pier and fishing, nothing like those large fishing cannery or modern building.
A lovely shot. Thanks.

What a beautiful sunset, and you have created a perfect silhouette too. Its an unusual pier with the vertical elements, and this adds to the magic of the whole scene. I like the slightly rough surface of the water too.
Thanks for sharing

A splendid sunset with good graphism and silhouettes of the bg pier and wooden poles. Good sharpness and superb saturation and warm cold color contrasts between the yellow orange sky and the upper and lower dark to light blue grey tones. Nice impressionist reflections in the choppy water. Have a great week!

Olá, amiga Ana,
esta es una toma difícil, que has realizado con mucha solvencia y buena técnica, para obtener un fuerte contraste entre las siluetas oscuras del embarcadero y de la costa en relación con el cielo naranja de la puesta de sol.
El resultado es una composición muy poderosa visualmente, con una exposición bien gestionada.
Pili e Josep
