Photographer's Note

Today curtainly a different image...;-)
This is a picture that I took in a small lagoon created by and affluent of the Tagus River.
This lagoon is located near of one of the major Industries of the Setúbal peninsula – The National Siderurgy.
Because there is no Treatment Station of Industrial Residues in Seixal, this lagoon is used as a deposit of the polluted residues, from a variety of Industries.
In this case the residues came from a cork factory.
The white tones are chemical products to wash the cork.
The dark brow liquids are oils from the machinery and the bright brow tones are cork dust.
This is a beautiful place but unfortunately now is full of water pollution.
That´s the world we leaving!
