This image was shot in the same place of "The Vigilant" photo - [link] - in the magical Lindoso village, in Serra do Gerês. Here you can see what we call "espigueiros", a structure built to protect the harvests from rodents, and to allow them to dry faster. These structures are scattered over the North of Portugal and Galicia in Spain, and they have such a unique look, that I had to capture some shots including them. I used my ultra-wide angle lens from a low point of view, to emphasize scale, and used a 3 stop ND Grad for the sky.

I miss this place so much, it had such a magical and serene atmosphere, not making me want to leave...

É no Lindoso, que tem uma zona com espigueiros tal como o Soajo.
