I’ve been spending the last couple of days in Serra da Estrela as part of a photography and storytelling project in collaboration with Nelson Carvalheiro Travel & Food and Visit Centro de Portugal, the Tourism Department of Central Portugal. I’d visited Serra da Estrela already two times in the past years, but this is the first time I’m here in the Winter. It’s not as cold as they say it uses to be this time of the year, but temperatures may fall during the week.
These days I’m focusing on photographing landscapes but I also had a chance or two to photograph local people and learn about their stories and their connection to their land. The light is so beautiful up here, and there’s a different atmosphere compared to the summer. A little photo round up below.
