Photographer's Note

“A stone’s throw away from the capital on the southern side of the Tejo River, the Costa da Caparica is basically a long stretch of sandy, clean beaches to suit all types of beachgoer. Stretching right down to the Cabo Espichel, its sandy expanses are lined with acacia and eucalyptus trees and sienna-coloured cliffs however it is the first five miles to the south of the town of Caparica which are the most well-known.” From Travel-in-Portugal.

The sands of these beaches have been being carried away by the sea for decades, and in the last years several man made beach groins have been built in an attempt to stop erosion.

This photo captures a group of fishermen using one of those groins to get closer to deeper waters. As the sun goes down, some of them go on hoping that some fish will bite, while others have already given up.
