Hello friends and colleagues , today I propose a view of the Portuguese village of Lanhelas , from the opposite bank of the river Miño that borders between Spain and Portugal , I hope you like it , then some letters on the villa.
Lanhelas is a Portuguese parish in the municipality of Caminha, with 4.35 km ² of area and 1,080 inhabitants (2001) . Density: 248.3 inhabitants / km ² . The parish of Lanhelas is the northernmost in the municipality .
By artisans work closely working with pyrotechnics. Other activities include agriculture, civil construction and river fishing .
Minho Lanhelas viewpoint .
From atop a magnificent coastal scenery unfolds with a vital Minho running merge their waters with the Atlantic. And down the streets of the town are counted among the many stones story behind this parish Caminha, north of the town and surrounded by buildings of interest. Sheltered between the river and the mountain two Jacobean routes, one along the coast and over the mountains, crossing this beautiful place showing a different perspective of the Minho estuary .
In the center of the parish the eye can see from anywhere in the belfry of the parish church , an interesting construction of the early nineteenth century built on a previous . Oldest is still São Martinho Chapel and remarkable in size and notoriety is the chapel do Senhor do Calvário , on top of Mount Goios .
In civil architecture sets are preserved as the Casa da Torre Tower Lanhelas or riparian margin in a body surrounded by medieval ramparts , in addition to the Casa da Anta , a manor house located in the town of the same name for years turned into hotel rural . Facing the same site a solid mansion of straight lines and solid build stonework commanded by Canon Sebastião Dantas and renovated in 1944 to house the Casa do Povo rises.
From the center you can walk - up or drive - up Cruzeiro da Independencia , a privileged viewpoint of the bank with an imposing stone building. The surrounding area has a recreatica sculptures.

a delightful layered composition with wonderful depth and very fine balance. I like very much the way you have divided the frame horizontally in zones of colours, textures and interest. The town is built in a lovely location and you have placed in the frame amid a very attractive context. I like very much the colours and the way the light affects their quality, especially in the foreground. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Best wishes Les.

A wonderful panorama picture with a lovely view about these area.
One advice Angel, with this wonderful light I would ISO 100 use, this gives less grain on the picture.
Notwithstanding this is your picture wonderful to look at.
Excellent panoramic vieuw about these area.
Nice colours and lovely sharpness.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

this is lovely village and the picture of it taken from behind the river has nice original touch. I like the POV which sets some flowers and water in the foreground while the actual village sits nicely on the bank on the second plan. Pretty view and well executed.
Nice colors and light, good sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Una composicion deliciosa, con un POV magnifico, con el toque floral en el primer plano, el azul de las aguas del rio y la encantadora poblacion ascendiendo la verde ladera, es un todo de gran belleza, un precioso trabajo amigo mio, disfruto mucho con imagenes como esta.
Un perfecto colorido muy natural.
Una imagen muy luminosa y con una óptima nitidez.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.

Hola amigo Ángel,
Una bonita composición de nuestra bonita España, un precioso país en donde tenemos paisajes de todo tipo, y se come como en ningún otro lugar. :-)
Me gusta la composición. tipo panorámico, en donde has captado muchos elementos con unos colores muy naturales, y buena definición.
El marco es elegante y muy acertado.
Te felicito por tu saber hacer.
Buena nota informativa, lo único que encuentro en falta es nuestro idioma.
Yo creo que nosotros los españoles menospreciamos nuestro idioma, y pecamos de mucha cortesía y esto no nos favorece en absoluto, pues así la gente no toma el mínimo esfuerzo en aprenderlo.
Perdona mi franqueza y sinceridad pero yo soy así.
Te deseo un buen fin de semana.

beautiful view of the town from the riverside. The picture has been nicely framed with the shrubs on the FG. The village on the slopes of the green hill has an amazing setting. I like the alternate layers of green and blue in the frame. Very good photo with bright light, superb colours and excellent clarity. Thanks for sharing.
P.S Apologies for missing out on some of your recent shares.

Great Pov, through the flowers over the river then onto the village of Lanhelas.

I like frame and colors.
Greetings from Ostrow Wielkopolski-Greater Poland.
Nice afternoon and good new week.

Although taken in the middle of Summer, this has very much a Spring time appeal. I really enjoy the three levels of blue color, the two deeper shades on the bottom half of the frame from the river, and the top half of turquoise sky. Bright and airy, this looks and feels refreshing and peaceful. The distant town makes for a nice centerpiece of focus and slight contrast of color against the hillsides. A very pleasing view indeed! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take care.

Lanhelas looks like an idyllic place to visit, nice situated near the river and with nature just outside the door! You have taken this picture from a good spot, fine depth and light. Well done my friend.

Délicieuse présentation, lumineuse et fleurie, belle vue sur le village dans un environnement verdoyant et face a la mer, belle présentation

Good sharpness and density with excellent framing and nice skylight reflections in the fg water. I like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow green reeds and the blue sky. The violet flowers enhance this effect. Tfs!

Very beautiful capture. I like the lines of colors. Great catch, superb image.
Have a fine day.

An attractive composed picture with its different horizontal layers.
Beautiful alternation of green and blue.
It looks like a beautiful place to live, surrounded by forests and the river.
Best regards, Paul
