Photographer's Note

This is a photo I took last summer in Pego do Altar, a Dam in the Alentejo. This bridge used to make the connection between two villages but since the construction of the dam it's usually underwater. In fact, it hadn't been visible for decades. Last summer it became visible, which was a terrible sign. Many fish died and the dam had practically no water. So far, the situation hasn't changed that much. It has rained since then, but not enough.
