Photographer's Note

Ferragudo Castle and its twin on the opposite headland of Pria de Rocha date from the 16th century and once guarded the estuary of the River Arade from invaders. Upstream at the limit of the navigable river is the city and fortress of Silves. I understand that dredging work has been carried out and the river is again navigable, thus enabling tourist boats and wildlife trips up the Arade and through some wonderful countryside to Silves which itself is a good place to visit.
This full frame image is my wife's choice. I thought it better with the 1/2 boat removed so I have posted my preference in WS for comparison and your comments. Compression has slightly softened both images I think. Also I just noticed I posted the unstraightened version!
