Testimony of the particularly steep relief of the island of Santo Antao ... from the Cova plateau to the Paul valley, there is an old mule track with an impressive series of zigzags ... the island is a paradise for hikers.

hello Jean, Hopefully it is not the road for the cars. But even on the mule I would be afraid to ride. Hiking would be nice.

Kind regrads MAlgo

a very beautiful and interesting slice of these slopes in the island. we can see many plantations and some abandoned ares. the road is really impressive. TFS this beautiful view.

take care


Hello Jean,
You have framed the shot well with the hairpin path wending its way across the frame from corner to corner. I like the colour contrasts to be observed in the landscape and the well rendered textural detail.

Hello Jean,
A fantastic view down these steep mountain slopes. The many different textures and colours are gorgeous and go really well together. The long, zigzagging path is well placed in the centre. Good vertical composition too.

Bonjour, cher Jean,
Heu ! oui, il faut vraiment avoir du courage pour gravir les sentiers sinueux (la même chose en descendant, car il faut se retenir pour ne pas tomber).
L'image est très belle, voyager de la sorte, cela vaut le coup, la preuve !

Bonjour Jean,

La route envoie mon regard vers le haut ce qui crée de la profondeur. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des arbres et de la route en zigzag. La lumière fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Hello Jean, your high point of view enables us to view all the 'zigs and zags' of the mule track as it winds its way up the mountainside. Good use of the vertical presentation.
A very interesting scene.
Regards Jean.

Hello Jean,

I think with my bike a little to heavy, take of the impressive series of zigzags.
An excellent depth and perspective, and pleasant panorama too.
Sharpness and clarity are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice Sunday,

Hello Jean,
You have captured a beautiful view of the land below with all of the various types of terraces and planting. The colors are great and the road can be clearly be seen following the contours of the land.

Kind Regards,

Witaj Jean!
A very interesting view,
old mule track makes impression.
Good composition and frame.
Nice colors and light.
Have a good new week.

Ciao Jean
la strada è molto impegnativa, dovrebbero utilizzarla per una corsa in bici....
Molto bello l'effetto grafico che si vede dalla foto.

Hi Jean,
Very impressive steep mountain slope view. Green and brown tones make a good mixture. That narrow mule path is really steep and give strong impression of tough life over there.

Bonjour Jean,
En effet un paradis pour les randonneurs mais on doit avoir un peu d'une condition.
C'est une hauteur sérieuse qui dépasse cette piste de mule.
Amicalement, Paul

Hi Jean.
A wonderful detail of this steep slope, where we see the impossible crops in those lands, the route that ascends in a crazy zig zag ..... impresses.
A beautiful color, which enhances the image.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

Oi, Jean!

Realmente, a quantidade de zigue zagues da trilha é de impressionar. A foto está bem bonita, a paisagem é bem fotogênica. Bom enquadramento e cores muito bonitas.

Bonjour Jean
Sacré paysage avec le zigzag du chemin, bonjour la montée....la vue est fantastique, merveilleuse
Belle soirée

Hello Jean,
Wow, that's a lot of zigzags. For pedestrians and beasts of burden, it should be no problem, though. It should be easy for mountain bikes, too.
