Photographer's Note

Texto em portugus mais abaixo.
This is in Pido, province of Beira Litoral, Central Portugal. It is the same schist village of my previous post (Schist village | 1 | Aldeia de xisto).
Almost all the houses in Pido are made of schist, including the roof shingles and the surface of the streets, as you can see here. Pido is one of the most interesting villages in Portugal, hidden in the mountains of Serra do Aor.
As I wrote in my previous post, the colour of the schist stones may change very much with the light, during the day. Here you see that in the same moment. This photo has no post-processing, but cropping and resize.

Localizao aproximada: 40.2293144, -7.8251973.
Aqui Pido, provncia da Beira Litoral, centro de Portugal. a mesma aldeia de xisto da minha foto anterior (Schist village | 1 | Aldeia de xisto).
Quase todas as casas no Pido so feitas de xisto, incluindo as telhas e a superfcie das ruas, como se pode ver aqui. Pido uma das aldeias mais interessantes em Portugal, escondida nos montes da Serra do Aor.
Como escrevi na nota anterior, a cor das pedras de xisto pode mudar muito com a luz, durante o dia. Aqui v-se isso no mesmo instante. Esta foto no tem ps-processamento, para alm de corte e redimensionamento.
