A rainy Monday


A story behind: Today I traveled to Sortelha. This is a charming small historical village in the Portuguese interior with a picturesque castle and old stone traditional houses covered with red tiles ( some of the houses are actually sculpted in the rocks ).

The weather was nothing like spring. In fact it was more like winter: rain, bitter cold and some wind.
The meadows were all just spring-green colored in contrast to gray and rather unpleasant sky. But that was a perfect combination for a photo, and all I needed for a good landscape composition was an object to seal these two elements: a lone olive tree ! I soon found a perfect match and put a tree in my composition according to the "rule of thirds".

Location: near Sortelha, 20 kilometers from the Spanish border, Portugal.
