Photographer's Note

Serra da Estrela is the highest mountain in Portugal´s continental mainland (1993m), as the highest is Pico in Azores archipelago. More than half of its area is located above an altitude of 700m and this particular place is located at around 1500m.

Serra da Estrela is also the source of the rivers Mondego, Zęzere and Alva.

This photo was taken just after the sunset, while a warm light flooded the sky, contrasting with the cold tones. It's very, very rare to get such a still water on this location, as the wind always blows too hard, which makes this moment a kind of rarity.

I hope you enjoy!

PS: I appologise for the 500px larger side and watermark in the frame, but some unauthorized use has happened before in other websites (including mine)
