Covilhã is divided in two parts: the lower part of the city, and the more upper part. The upper part is just that little more picturesque. Narrow streets, a bit of abandonment (remember, the gone glory of the textile manufacturing), small tiny doors and much more. In the lower part of the city, you can find a huge shopping mall and between the busstation and railway state: an artificial designed “Jardim do Lago”. A real “Lake garden”, built in 2005. In this area you can find a restaurant, a playground, lakes and ducks:).

And the nice thing was, I just came up before the sunset! Nice little cute ducks were swimming in one of the lakes. Perfect moment to grab my camera and experiment with my HOYA 7 2/3 stops filter:).

  1. That early-morning light is so subtle that it’s difficult to capture — but you’ve done so beautifully! Thank you for sharing your lovely photos.
