An old chest, a piece of furniture that existed in practically all Portuguese houses. This one I found near the nativity scene, in Cabeça, decorated just with a few branches of pine tree.
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.

Ola dear Ana
I am enjoying this series and your composition is very minimalistic but very compelling. I love the colours and the impressive definition of the green Christmas tree. I like the tight framing and stunning depth of field. Well done!

Bonjour, chère Ana,
Joli symbole de Noël à travers cette prise de vue.
Simplicité de la décoration, mais gros impact sur le principe.
Une jolie réussite.
Bonnes fêtes de fin d'année.

ho già avuto occasione di dirti come questa tua miniserie sul natale sia estremamente deliziosa.
Non posso fare altro che ripetermi in questa tua quarta proposta sul tema.
Anche in questa eccellente nitidezza, semplicità e colori molto garbati.
Ciao e buona domenica

H Ana, Simple Christmas decoration and yet one can still feel the pine sending its greetings to the world.
Very natural and original look of this image. Nice colour contrasts from the chest. Thank for sharing and Happy Holidays
