During the summer I shot landscapes of central Portugal. It was my first visit to these magnificent mountains and they blew me away. Immediately I felt connected with nature and and its greatness was very visible here among the rocks, gorges, lakes, rivers and trees. Very sadly this area was exposed to a horrible fire last october and the destructions seen were beyond belief; An area the size of Holland is burned. So the old gorgeous forrests have disappearred in many areas and the trees now stand black and burned, while new plants and eucalyptus trees are appearing from the ground.
