This is a detail of another quarry, this time in Montes Claros, not far from Borba. In this area it's possible to find many quarries with small lagoons inside, specially during the rain season. This is a reflection in one of them. Here we see the Marble of Estremoz that can be found in Estremoz and also in the area of other surrounding towns like Vila Viçosa, Borba, Alandroal and Sousel - together they form the Marble Zone. From this region the marble is exported to everywhere around the world.

Ola dear Ana
I find it impressive when a photographer can make what man has done to Nature look beautiful. Here you have. The rich colours and textures are a feast for the eyes, as is are the silvery reflections. I really like the graphism that has been created by the way man has cut into the rockface and the natural arrow shapes that have resulted. Well done!

Belle et intéressante exploitation photographique de cette carrière de marbre.

Another fine photo from a quarry where you have made the various colours of the marble look like an almost abstract composition, with the assistance of the reflections. The warm light also plays an important role here.

nice the tight frame of the ciolouful section of the quarry with all these shapes to show us the beauty and the grandeur of the mother nature.
I like the excellent light and colour management as the beauty of the scene.

Real hard task to distinguish between reallity and the reflection's, but afterall - a fantastic image with a great mirror effect in the water.
Apprently, a quarry filled with water is an intriguing location for photographers. Besides the reflection, the stone texture and its cut, and in many colors, made a photo so exquisite.
Bom fim de semana,

This is almost pure abstract seen so close catching my eye! I am sure I would never have guessed what it is - thks to your notes. Excellent amount of reflections and really well captured as the focus must have proved tricky but very impressionistic in form and is a well seen shot and the stunning textures hold the eyes in so superbly. Just blows the mind the more you look at it!! Lovely
