This is another typical house that is now abandoned, not far from the other one on my last post. I found it near Montejuntos, not far from the Alqueva, one of the biggest artificial lakes in Europe. It's a typical house from the south of Portugal: white, thick walls and not many windows. This type of chimney can be found in this area.

Jolie composition verticale exploitant bien cette maison abandonnée et le contraste de couleurs bleues, vertes et blanches.

Excellent, well arranged photo. The view up to the white house is superb and the contrast against blue sky perfect.
Very well done
Wish you a nice weekend.

Une belle composition, la maison est bien cadrée, l'endroit est plein de charme.
Belle présentation de cette vieille maison typique, les détails révélés par le soleil sont intéressants.

I like very much this photo and its atmosphere. The mysterious, abandoned house is a melancholic theme but the clear, sunny day and its colours are lively and delicious, a striking contrast. You used the angle and intensity of the light very effectively, the whitewashed façade and the dark doorway are captivating. I love the colours and details all around as well as the ample space given to the sky. A very inviting view. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

la seconda versione della casa della foto precedente e qanche questa molto bella per gli stessi motivi: eccellente composizione, colori saturi che brillano in un cielo fortemente polarizzato e nitidezza di straordinario livello.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Another simple but basically nice looking house. One reason for the pleasant atmosphere is no doubt the strong colours of the grass and the sky that give an impression of a very hot day in summer. All the nuances of the white wall have been kept in this well exposed photo.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui aide à situer cette maison abandonnée dans son environnement très campagnard.Une image profonde qui jouit d'une superbe luminosité et d'un beau ciel polarisé.

An abandoned country house, remote in isolation so well set off to deep blue sky. A simple effective compo with attractive foreground and nicely framed between the trees The exposure is spot on and this looks so tranquil as we can imagine spaciousness of this sight. Congrats

I was surprised to see this is a house, the tall chimney made me think of a church! This is a fine understated image, perfectly suited to the mood of this abandoned little house. The colors are very gentle and your composition is superb.
Thanks as always

A very pleasant composition that radiates the warm climate of the south beautifully. The stark white house contrast nicely with the green and blue of nature and sky. Very romanic.
have a good sunday

both houses are beautiful, too bad they are abandoned. There are many such houses throughout Europe, people flock to the cities, and wonderful things like these decaying. Let us hope that the time will come when we will return to such houses, at least for vacation. Just to not be too late.

it would seem as if you find a little treasure trove of abandoned structures. :) From a distance they actually look to be in good shape, and the stark contrast of color they provide against the landscape and sky is wonderful. Still appears to be a nice place to get away from the crowds at least. Relatively unassuming and long forgotten, but it sure makes for a desired subject to photograph, and you've done it well indeed! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take care.
