Silent night

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This is a 30 seconds photograph made ​​without tripod. Me and my camera, we were both lying on the floor of a floating dock and to prevent a blurred photo I only had to remain still and hold my breath during the period of exposure.

In the Upper Douro region, the nights are so calm that the silence is broken only when a fish jumps in the water.

Esta é uma fotografia de 30 segundos feita sem tripé. Eu e a minha máquina estávamos deitados no chão de um cais flutuante e para evitar uma fotografia tremida eu só tive que permanecer imóvel e suster a respiração durante o tempo de exposição.

Na região do Alto Douro, as noites são tão calmas que o silêncio só é interrompido quando um peixe salta na água.
