A view of the lush valley of the "Ribeira da Torre" taken to the hamlet of Xôxô.
The island of Santo Antao is the greenest island in the archipelago of Cape Verde, its steep terrain is cut into valleys where rivers flow that allow crops: vegetables, corn, sugar cane .. .
Particularly photogenic valleys that contrast with the arid landscapes, the majority in Cape Verde.

Bonjour Jean ,
Petites maisons traditionnelles dans les profondes vallées luxuriantes , des cultures en terrasses , le linge ... beaucoup d'attraits dans cette image . On voit même un bout de route qui montre que le progrès est là au Cap Vert.

Dobar dan.
Interesantan i lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje.
Lep kanjon sa zelneoim drvecem i kucama, lepa priroda.
Zelim vam lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

Good day.

Bravoet amitié

Hello Jean,
You offer us a plunging almost vertiginous view down into this lush valley filled with vegetation. The interesting little cottage in the foreground is well positioned and supplies a good focal point. Very good rendering of the colours and textural detail.

Hi Jean,
An amazing shot of a beautiful looking place. Wonderful color and details here, the cottage, terraces. I think I would need to be roped on before going to work.



Hello Jean,
I guess I saw the same place, and in any case I remember with pleasure the stunning views when crossing the mountains of Santo Antão. How much more beautiful this scenery is than the flat sand of Sal where most tourists spend their time. These small farms are spectacularly located on the steep hillsides and this photo shows the amazing scenery with very good clarity and colours.

Bonjour Jean,

Cela prend quelqu'un d'assez brave pour se construire une maison à cet endroit, mais pour quelqu'un qui aime la solitude et la sainte paix c'est parfait. Quel beau point de vue.

Hello Jean,
Great landscape, I very much like the contrast between the large reddish cliffs and the many shades of green. The small houses are also well included in several parts of the photo. Excellent photo work!

Hi Jean.
Impressive landscape, with these mountains and their deepest valleys, a beauty the color with the reddish lands and the exuberant vegetation.
A fantastic photo, with beautiful natural colors.
Well done. I love.
Enjoy the weekend.
My best wishes for you..

Bonjour Jean,
Un endroit très spécial d'où on peut regarder dans toutes les directions.
L'image est très bien équilibrée.
Il n'y a pas beaucoup de mètres carrés plats mais cela rend le paysage si intéressant.
Une très belle combinaison de la végétation verte et des roches rouge-brun.
Amicalement, Paul

Hello Jean,
