In Cabeça, even the old typical houses in ruins have now some decoration.
Situated in the Estrela Mountain, the highest mountain in Portugal, this village, with less than 200 inhabitants is receiving thousands of visitors this month. Helped by Gil&Alberto, two eco designers, the inhabitants decorated their houses and streets for Christmas, but all the decorations are made of materials from the mountain, what makes it the most ecological Christmas in Portugal.

questa foto è il bel complemneto della precedente.
La bellezza della realtà rurale accoppiata alla semplicità di una festa riportata alla semplicità originaria, il tutto racchiuso in una composizione semplice ed efficace che trasmette il senso vero delle feste natalizie.
Ciao e buona notte

Good idea to make all Christmas decorations with natural materials from the mountain.
Wonderful textures of the wall, the small stone stairs and the wooden door.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Ana, Here is another simple with nice Christmas decoration in front of an old worn out door of a house in Portugal. Christmas is not only for riches to have fun party with their expensive Christmas decorations. Poor could have the same fun with their simple decorations too. That is why Christmas is to be said JOY TO THE WORLD. Beautiful composition here to celebrate Christmas. Thank for sharing

Une façon modeste mais plus authentique de célébrer Noël que ta jolie photo retranscrit parfaitement.

Que grande cena! Cada elemento contribui interesse! A porta de madeira resistiu a cantaria fantástica, a lenha, a abóbora..--é um mundo completo em uma única foto. Isto é o desafio que todos nós enfrentamos, e com esta foto, você conheceu o desafio lindamente!
Obrigado por compartilhar!

A beautiful composition with this old doorway off centre and the frame divided between it and the Christmas tree. I love the various textures here, the door and walls being really prevalent, but also the smooth textures of the vegetables. I love the idea of this place, and am very glad you have shared your knowledge of it!
All the best

A simple unpretentious Christmas tree with homemade decorations and far from flashy, but conveying the same powerful message of a traditional Christmas break. Love the pumpkin, squash and wicker basket trim. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

What a humble, simple but effective decoration! It looks like it is just a branch off of a pine tree. Who says simple cannot be beautiful?

I like very this alternative Christmas decoration, it's so discreet and so delightful. Your composition is simple and austere but there's a range of very appealing and interesting natural textures to study and a rich palette of harmonious natural tones to please the eyes. A fine and original Christmas picture. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, I wish you a wonderful Christmas!

There is a high degree of clarity and sharpness in this image..... it makes every stone the star of the photo.
Good idea to decorate the village..... the door is a beauty.

a porta e as paredes me fazem voltar à casa de meus ancestrais. linda foto. muito bem enquadrada e iluminada. a velha parede e sua porta estão ao menos preservadas em sua imagem que enaltece quem as ergueu.
