Wow..... I liked this right off the thumbnail.

The golden light really enhances it, as well.

Su, Portugal
I´ve made a shot of "the arrival" to the seaside but it looks like the magic here didn´t work, that´s why I like so much being here, I know which shots are good or not...
Thank you all again, Su, Portugal #110999

That you love this place is obvious. It shows in your work. I would like to take this walk someday. Congratulations and good luck!

Susana Matos July 10, 2003

Hello Jay, nice to read from you.
I am falling in love again and again as long as I know it better! I´ve been living 6 years in another country where I loved to be and coming home was not pleasant at that time. Now, I get to know better all that surrounds me and I am happy you guess from the photo that I love the nature that surrounds me, more than ever.
Have you happen to see my gallery? I have it since last week? If you want to ask something about Portugal once you are going to make a cruise, you are wellcome!
Cheers, Su #139261
