Dear TE friends,
The tourist may choose among sheltered and sometimes crowded beaches like the ‘Praia do Sul’, in the village itself, or the quieter and less public ones, like São Sebastião at the north end of the village, on the way to the camping site.
Further still, near the ruins of the old palace ‘Paço de Ilhas’ and the traditional settlement of ‘Santo Isidoro’, lies the beach of ‘Ribeira de Ilhas’. Facing the open sea, it is internationally renowned as one of the best surfing spots in Europe. After Ribamar comes São Lourenço beach, the favourite for those who like plenty of space and beautiful sea views.
On the opposite side of the village the river running alongside the chapel of Nossa Senhora do Ó and across the sandy beach of Lizandro offers pleasant opportunities for boat trips.

Hi Aires Wonderful blue colour! well composition sky and silhouettes with excellent sky and contrast, all this is seen in beautifully sharp detail and true colours ,,tfs/regards Georgios
gildasjan (41932) 2007-10-03 1:11
Le ciel donne toute son importance à la composition,ainsi une très belle atmosphère est crée.
besnard (54243) 2007-10-03 1:19
Le ciel est superbe, c'est lui qui donne toute son importance à la photo. La passerelle forme un bon 1er plan et les promeneurs sur la plage ajoute un côté romantique.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.
Budapestman (82620) 2007-10-03 1:27
Fascinating impression, colours are magnificent. I like the attractive composition and the calm atmosphere, details are very fine. Beautiful image, Have a nice day
Tue (28090) 2007-10-03 1:29
Very good choice for this low POV. It gives a nice view over the beach and water with the little bridge well placed on the right hand side. The light conditions are interesting too and I like the inclusion of the two persons. Well done!
papagolf21 (88111) 2007-10-03 1:43
Bonjour, mon ami Aires,
La plage étincelle, fume
Et retentit, vaste enclume
Que les vagues et le vent
Couvrent de bruit et d'écume.
Je vais, selon ma coutume.
J'aime beaucoup cette prise de vue pleine de poésie. Une réussite, mon ami.
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2007-10-03 1:55
Una bonita sensación melancólica...me gusta. Además, el contraste con el cielo está bien visto.
Un saludo, Oscar
mikeo (12129) 2007-10-03 2:09
This is great! Fantastic colours of sky and clouds... Very interesting POV, looks like very romantic place:)
flory (4848) 2007-10-03 2:12
hm,nice one Aires,especially this bridge is well taken in image.it's simple,but comes with a quiet feeling..i enjoy it!
Rosa (0) 2007-10-03 2:20
Le ciel est Magnifique, il à toute son importance à la photo. La passerelle lui donne un bon 1er plan. beau POV, j'aime beaucoup.
jhm (141937) 2007-10-03 3:13
You dark picture gives it real weather together with the dramatic atmosphere and the clouds at the sky care for a hope on better weather, also the handrail care for depth and nice compostion.
One small detail Aires, your horizont tilt a little bit to the right.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice day,
Cricri (109625) 2007-10-03 4:35
Un ciel magnifique qui donne une atmosphére trés particuliére a cet endroit romantique, beau cadrage et composition
Have a nice day for you
stefanocer (10642) 2007-10-03 5:34
Aires great atmosphere and composition , beautiful colours , compliments.
WepWaWet (3796) 2007-10-03 5:59
This is very beautiful and a romantic composition. Great sky and clouds. The colors are excellent. Regards,
UnTrained (0) 2007-10-03 6:57
this is a good POV to create depth by the bridge and the colour and a bit dark composition creates a dreamy mood. Very good impression.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
Scharan (14144) 2007-10-03 8:36
Muito bonita esta foto Aires, ótimo ponto de vista e cores lindas. O céu está diferente e merece mesmo o destaque aqui. Lindo o detalhe do casal lá ao fundo, na praia.
agbonavita (0) 2007-10-03 9:03
Aires, essa praia parece ser bonita. A meia liz não temos uma clareza quando a cor da água. Gosto da inclussão da "ponte", porém ela compete em atenção com o casal e as nuvens (lados opostos). Tentaria uma foto pegando mais a ponte, como se nosso olhar fosse caminhado por ela até o mar e quem sabe algumas nuvens do outro lado.
Cormac (26563) 2007-10-03 11:34
Beautiful scene! The fence in the foreground really makes this work, because it gives this a nice sense of depth and also leads our eyes into the scene. I like how you got very low so you could show it against the sky - great job!
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2007-10-03 13:04
Nice capture of the beach. Good perspective and lovely sky.
markstaples (15670) 2007-10-03 13:43
The sky is lovely in this shot and I like the nice low POV. The silhouetted posts and the silhouetted people work well. Nice work.
vinicio (23423) 2007-10-03 13:54
Like a frame of some movie this image, I like it and its very good POV and composition, compliments Aires, beautiful image with nice nature and graphic appeal.
Have a nice day
bostankorkulugu (42142) 2007-10-03 17:30
i like the low pov and the dark foreground together with the sky in perfect blue tones... the horizon looks tilted though... all the best aires...
robertosalguero (246) 2007-10-03 22:51
Aires the cool colours of the image contrast very nice with the evening mood. However the path to the right is what seem to catch my attention the most. The rope take my eyes away from the beautiful sky. Good compo Aires.
John_F_Kennedy (43295) 2007-10-03 23:41
I like very much the mood of this picture! Beautiful landscape. Good colors and light.
isabela_sor (47722) 2007-10-04 0:28
I love the mood of this pic!Interesting composed this shot with this special POV ...and this blue sky is my favorite :)
salvator (19102) 2007-10-04 1:15
Nice contrast and superb blue and cloudy sky. The silouettes on the beach also very nice. Best regards. Salvator.
ALIRIZA (16423) 2007-10-04 1:47
Wonderful scene, goog composition, impressie atmosphere. I like the view over the beach and water with the little bridge. Well done my friend...
All the best...
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2007-10-04 1:54
Duas pessoas na praia porque certamente o tempo já estava frio para banhos de mar. Além disso, as nuvens no ceu também não deixavam antever melhoria alguma na meteorologia. Tudo isto deu-te uma boa oportunidade para nos mostrar o que é a praia a partir do meio do Outono.
Gosto também da informação detalhada que dás do local. E já agora, quanto é que custa o café?!!!!
jlynx (12645) 2007-10-04 3:57
Other place, other time, other remembrances and other actors in the picture. Very nicely you showed the lonesome beach. Very nice composition, excellent mood called out by the superbly lighted up sky. Version of Michal shown in the workshop is also interesting.
ahmetgedikli (25508) 2007-10-04 5:11
Excellent perspective, very good contrast and depth. Superb shot!
Have a nice day.
ryno (6863) 2007-10-04 11:22
Hi Aires, this is a great atmospheric composition. A good idea to include the two small figures, it emphasizes the loneliness of the beach somehow. Also an interesting low POV to make the most of the wooden bridge. BTW, when is your next visit to Izmir?
jurek1951 (42160) 2007-10-04 11:46
Really nice shot in my opinion. The clouds are dramatic, interesting, and powerful. Great capture!
vincz (19113) 2007-10-04 12:10
Interesting composition with this wooden path over the sand. I like the overall darkness of the picture with the sky being still blue.
Flavia (10352) 2007-10-04 12:17
Bela foto, com bom POV usando o caminho. As cores do entardecer estao bonitas. Aproveite bastante a viagem a Italia.
zeca (19762) 2007-10-04 18:07
Gosto da passarela para a praia, que me parece bonita. A perspectiva é boa e original, com uma diagonal fechada da passagem partindo do meio para a lateral. O céu destaca-se por sua luz e ótimas cores.
Graal (99110) 2007-10-05 0:35
amazing informations about this beach, good idea and shot. Pity that main theme is in shadow. Nice colours and clouds on the sky. Good composition.
danos (88841) 2007-10-05 0:42
nice composition with great perspective that created from the wooden bridge.The dramatic dark sky and the two walking men create an atmospheric scenery.Informative your note too about the beach characteristics.Well done Aires.
leonorkuhn (16235) 2007-10-05 4:51
Uma composição diferente, feita ao entardecer. Ficou lindo esta "abertura" de céu azul claro entre as nuvens escuras. Gosto das silhuetas das pessoas conversando e da passarela em diagonal que cria uma boa perspectiva. A luz e as cores estão bem naturais.
pasternak (15181) 2007-10-05 7:07
Hi Aires, I like all the blue in this image, a well as the fence which gives some depth. Very good to have that couple there...
carper (96) 2007-10-05 10:26
very nice pov Aires,
thye shotis not easy with the light, but I like the good result here, nice format and good photojob, have a nice day.
Stepan (27210) 2007-10-05 22:21
A little dark, but moddy for sure !!
The contrats between the blue sky and the dark beach is stunning.
bakes888 (18499) 2007-10-06 1:32
Hi Aires. Nice relaxing photo. The path and handrail add repetition and pattern to this shot and the bold silhouette balances the subtleties in the sky. Well captured and thanks for sharing.
Charo (51210) 2007-10-06 2:56
Buenos días Aires,
Una bonita composición con la playa, la pasarela y los paseantes, todo ello en una semi oscuridad que le da un ambiente muy íntimo bajo un cielo estupendo.
brevbrev14 (140) 2007-10-06 6:21
Hola Aires, a good perspective here and good blue tones...
good where you placed the bridge...
the couple walking on the beach is the cherry on the cake..
Bluejeans (64249) 2007-10-06 8:21
Ola amigo ,
Ficou muito bonita esta tua foto, com um azul intenso faz um bonito contraste com as nuvens brancas , gostei deste caminho de madeira aqui em primeiro plano , a presença humana na foto ficou fantastica , parabens!!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
Cretense (68691) 2007-10-07 7:57
Excellent atmospheric shot with "dark" light managment that enhances the feeling. Excellent low POV and amazing perspective. Those two distant shadows are a remarkable and important "bonus". Congratulations
Starscream (891) 2007-10-07 12:19
Nice composition. I really the low POV and the footpath is nicely placed in the right part of the picture. TFS
alvaraalto (6177) 2007-10-07 13:33
Excellent refined POV here. It creates a beautiful atmosphere of loneliness.
zhelach (3626) 2007-10-09 9:39
Fantastic colours of sky and clouds!
paura (47166) 2007-10-09 12:08
O equilibrio das luzes e cores aqui esta excelente. A paisagem é muito bonita e a grade em direção à praia deu uma profundidade bastante interessante.
atus (15838) 2007-10-09 13:17
very well captured shot of a nice perspective and very good sense of depth, thanks to the wooden bridge leading away. The light is well managed and the presence of the people add life to the picture. Good work!
Tfs and best wishes.
Vato_Law (12720) 2007-10-09 13:50
Gosto do contraste que aqui se mostra entra o que é uma praia no pico do verão e uma praia em Outubro no final de tarde. Estas duas pessoas dão-lhe alguma vida mas o que transparece é uma snesação de solidão mas tambem de liberdade para fazer mais ou menos o que nos apatecer sem ter algumas centenas de olhos virados para nós. Gosto desta atmosfera mais fria e deste céu nublado que o torna bastante interessante. O facto de incluires o passadiço dá profundidade à fot mas se tivesses dado um passo mais talvez ainda conseguisses maid pois não terias este pilar a cortar à visão (digo eu se calhar até não...)
axiotea (21649) 2007-10-09 21:15
A well balanced compo with the wooden bridge creating a perspective, the couple giving a sense of distance on the other side. I like as well the movement of the clouds well captured and its colors.
Have a nice day
leo61 (0) 2007-10-09 21:44
Good lightcontrol for the foreground and wonderful blue tones in the sky.Ypur well choosen low POV gives the image a great depth.
john_c (24666) 2007-10-10 7:34
Excellent use of the great shadows here. I like the graphism of the posts and walkway, the large proportion of idyllic sky, and the warmth brought to the scene by the people in the distance. Well captured....Demain.
toto (0) 2007-10-10 10:14
Belle photo de cet endroit très jolis, bien ce ponton qui dirige notre regard vers ce ciel superbe,bleu avec ces nuages clairs, foncés, tournant. Beau aussi ce couple dans le paysage. Amitiés Thomas
Hendrika (655) 2007-10-10 23:44
I thought by myself if he does not have time for TL, then I will reopen my account on TE and visit him there ^-^.
Lovely composed picture and great atmosphere.
berek (41101) 2007-10-11 0:37
impressive cloudy sky. you caught very good perspective with the bridge. well framed picture my friend. take care.
Emile (20350) 2007-10-11 7:13
Nice blue tones of the beautiful sky, very well captured with great perspective, the couple on the beach give a romantic touch to your shot, nice composition.
Well done. TFS.
pablominto (53744) 2007-10-12 2:36
A different view to the beach, with the wooden walkway as a good lead-in!
I like the time of day with the diminishing light, adding atmosphere to the scenery...
Overall impression is increased by inclusion of the two beachwalkser!
anes_lc (14968) 2007-10-13 4:13
what a great picture:) i like the way you frame it :) and specialy the POV

jasmis (57906) 2007-10-15 0:35
Interesting nostalgic atmosphere. Fine silhouettes on the shore.
vagabondtravels (6507) 2007-10-15 5:44
Great clouds and the repetition of the poles. The well placed people make the image. What color. Good depth. Well done.
silvia_zenova (1332) 2007-10-16 7:55
Hi Aires :)
interesting composition with this black silhouettes in the foreground. The sky is full of rich colours. Nice mood in the picture.
Greetings from Bulgaria
siolaw (38292) 2007-10-16 22:47
Well composed picture with the low POV allowing the ramp to stand out in the sky, good luminosity and realistic color tones. The two pwoplw in the background add aa touch of romantism to sthe scene
ChrisJ (101756) 2007-10-17 0:32
Wonderful repetition & graphism of the boardwalk posts against the lighter sky, with good sharpness & composition. Tfs!
Merline (0) 2007-10-27 2:58
This is all I love, a quiet beach under a big sky...
It's an excellent composition with that bridge of weathered wood, the two people walking, the enormous sky, soft but also dramatic, the gorgeous light, the mood you gave it by keeping on a lower key in light. Great job, I like it very very much!
izmirli (3987) 2008-01-03 6:00
merhaba my friend aires
excellent depth and sky.wonderful atmosphere and colours.well done.
