Photographer's Note

This is another dolmen (or anta, like is popularly known in Portugal) that is located only some Kms from the one I posted the other day.

This is a HDRI, made by merging two shots with exposures differing 2 EV. One is mostly used to the darker parts and the other for the lighter ones.

I posted also two alternative pov's as WS's (1, 2).

Dolmens are the oldest `monuments´ we can find in Western Europe. As far as I know, most or all of them were built at least 5000 years ago and they were tombs, (actually not every archaeologist is fully convinced of that). Those in better shape still preserve the cover stone that make them look a bit like huge mushrooms or tables (the word derives from the antique Breton word that means 'stone table'). I have written something more on the earlier post mentioned above.

Location (latitude, longitude): 39.4612,-7.5446

Update 26-Jul-2007: I posted a panoramic photo of this place.

31-Jul-2007 update: I have posted 3 views of the zone taken from the hills that are visible on the right (1, 2, 3).

You can browse all my posts taken this day on this region on this "travelogue".
