And as I've been posting photos of Cabeça this year, I've chosen another detail of the decorations of this village to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Enjoy your holidays!
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.

This is a lovely Christmas view. The green and red colors are perfect, and I can imagine the wonderful smell of the pine needles and cones. The old door and wall are charming, too. Have a very Merry Christmas!

A simple but well observed composition skillfully presented, with good textural details and lighting. The old wooden door has no doubt seen many a year come and go, and this time again, it will welcome both family and friends to enjoy Christmas together. A beautiful composition, captured in a very artistic and tasteful way, in the spirit of Christmas.
Wishing you all the very best for Christmas and the coming year.

credo che questo sia il tuo augurio conclusivo prima delle feste di Natale.
Mi piace il modo molto garbato ed elegante con il quale hai porto gli auguri agli altri membri di TE.
Invece di parole e chiacchiere inutile, hai presentato foto di una semplicità disarmante cge aiutano a ricordare che la festa ha una origine umile e si possono fare gli auguri nella maniera più semplice del mondo denza ostentare ricchezze o altro.
Hai proposto una bella serie di fotografie nelle quali semplicità e buona tecnica di ripresa si sono unite per un risultato ottimale.
Ritengo che i tuoi siano gli auguri più semplici e sinceri - ed anche più apprezzati - tra i membri di TE.
Tanti, tanti auguri di un felice Natale.

Me encanta la foto que has elegido para felicitar las Navidades, ademas de hermosa, me parece original y muy autentica, creada con los elementos disponibles en el medio rural, preciosas texturas y detalles.
Muy buen colorido en tonos naturales.
Magnífica.... tanto la luminosidad, como la nitidez.
Buen trabajo. Me gusta
Quiero desearte unas Felices Navidades, en compañia de familiares y amigos.
Todo lo mejor.

I have enjoyed your latest series of close-ups. They have all shown fine details of old materials with great sharpness and a good sense of textures, and this is no exception. The green and red heart is beautiful and the Christmas tree decoration to the right are very tasteful.
Thanks for sharing, and I wish you too a very Merry Christmas.

J'aime beaucoup cette photo de circonstances ou les gens décorent selon leurs moyens. J'aime la texture de cette porte ou la poignée tient de peine et de misère.
aleXundar (1256) 2013-12-25 8:19
An excellent way to wish Christmas. Thanks a lot.
The decorations are great and so is your capture - with wonderful colors and detail. Use of the old door as the main base - is a nice idea. Very well composed.
Wishing you a very happy Christmas,

A creative simple home made Christmas decor but still full of vigour and enough to strike the eyes with its eye-catching traditional colours. A good depiction of custom-tradition and what make this outstanding is the lovely rustic oldie background evoking that special atmosphere and feel. Lovely smooth lighting and colours, touch of warm tones is great. A wonderful creation so well shot, Congrats

A beautiful photo and a Christmas Greeting Card post. Very charming and rustic place and nice decoration with natual elements.
imageme (1790) 2013-12-27 14:20
Hi Ana, This Christmas decorate seems has more adornments on it and probably the family is much richer than that of those you posed before. I like the photographic perspectives you give to your images which always enrich my knowledge with told stories and the way you take the pictures. Thank very much and Happy Holidays
delpeoples (57266) 2013-12-27 17:42
Ola dear Ana
I hope that you and your family had a happy Christmas, and your photo certainly brings a smile to my face. It is very artistic,beautifully defined and impeccably saturated. Superb work and I wish you a happy, healthy and loving 2014.

Merry Christmas to you, too! The charm of an old door and the magnetism of red and green decorations combine to make this an excellent candidate for a Christmas card.
