Photographer's Note

This is a beautiful small town overlooking a famous shell shaped with a very narrow entrance barra in Portuguese flanked by two craggy hills. The barra is known for its occasional bursts of bad temper with breakers that can reach up to half the height of the flanking hills.
The town is a prosperous fishing center and Summer resort with very little industry and only light at that. Critics claim it is the place where Winter spends its Summer holidays.For that reason it is ideal for those who think the sweltering Summers of southern Portugal are too hot for them.This probably explains the large number of swedish, dutch, german and other cooler climate Europeans amongst its visitors. It also explains the unusual habit of the main tourist restaurants to have their menus in Dutch and Swedish instead of the more frequent English elsewhere.A sizeable group of german, dutch and french nationals live there permanently and own a few businesses. It has a Winter population of around five thousand that increases more than five fold in August.
