Photographer's Note

Texto em portugus mais abaixo.
Today, World Photography Day, I present you a schist village: Pido, province of Beira Litoral, in Central Portugal.
Almost all the houses in Pido are made of schist, including the roof shingles. The surface of the streets is also schist. Pido is one of the most interesting villages in Portugal, hidden in the mountains of Serra do Aor.
The colour of the schist stones may change very much with the light.
Appr. location:
Localizao: 40.2293144, -7.8251973.
