Photographer's Note

The 4th picture I post of the massive granit rocks of the Serra-de-Estrela,
A statue of the "Senhora da Estrela"( Estrela means "Star"), was carved with a good view from the road.
The scene is on 1800m +/- altitude, nature sculptured with white spots of lime-stone residue's.
Due to those numerous white spots on the rocks – sometime the rocks gets a vague look on it's extraordinary formation.

*** Many thanks to Antonio Paninho who noted that the statue here is 8 meters high, and work on it had begun on 1940.
