|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Cabo da Roca (Cape Roca) is a cape that forms the westernmost point of mainland Portugal. It was known to the Romans as 'Promontorium Magnum'.|
Poet Luís de Camões defined Cabo da Roca as the place "where the land ends and the sea begins" (Portuguese: "Onde a terra acaba e o mar começa"). Compare Cape Finisterre (literally End of land) in Spain, Finistère in France, and Land's End in the United Kingdom.

Nice landscape! Good note. I learned a little more geography today...;-)
Looks like some interesting countryside.
Onde a terra acaba e o mar começa...:o fado do Portugal:-)
Thanks for sharing the seascape, Pedro. The only poet I know is Fernando Pessoa; hope I spell it right.

Another very beautiful shot of this impressive coast!
The warm light here is realyl great and enhances all the features of the rocks and water. The natural colors are simply lovely adn the high POV is excellent. Very nicely composed, as well.
bravo and TFS
Spectacular vista Pedro! What a sight! To think that when I look East and if my eyesight holds I behold this! Thanx for giving me an idea what your coast looks like! It's awesome!
Your note is very fitting! Connected with your other Cabo da Roca shots this gives a good idea of the tremendous force of Nature in forming the interface of land and sea. Tfs, Obrigado, Jay
