Fascinating colours and textures in the stone - the top half looks like blue cheese! Is that one of the marble quarries up Estremoz way, Antonio?

Thank you John for commenting.
Today we made a troll and passed by this rock. I was talking to my wife about its origine. I guess it can be from near Setúbal, from the mountain nearby.
However, the near mountain - Arrábida - has been eaten by a cement factory for many years and doesn't have this kind of rock. But, I am not sure...

The other pictures are a different view from this rock under a fantastic sky (did you say chemtrails ? ;)) and another shot of the same rock using the Oly 5 MkII + Oly 40-150mm f/2.8

The last photo is from an abandoned quarry in Borba near Estremoz and was shot with a Canon

I agree it's a nice lens and those are interesting shots too. You seem to be getting nicer bokeh with your lens than I usually get.

Thank you Phill for your comment. :)
It is a nice lens indeed. Perhaps a bit heavy...

Thanks for the extra photos Antonio, interesting to see the stone in context.

They were't messing about when they dug that quarry, were they!

Welcome John ! :)
When I visited this quarry 4 years ago, (time passes quickly) I went to a visit just to take pictures of the stones and activity in Borba near Estremoz. It was winter.
The one we see here (above) was the first one I made when arriving to the area. We were - a couple, my wife and myself - guided by someone and I missed to ask why this was abandoned.
Other areas were active. When now I see these photos I realize that I would have - or, I having now - another perspective and way of looking.

Sorry if the images are not Olys. They are all Canon.

Many thanks for sharing all of these whatever camera you were using


Portugal is a country that we (me and mrs Shenstone) still have to visit, but as a pair of geologists there is certainly something for people like us


You are making good use of the new lens .. please keep posting :)


regards
Andy

Andy, thank you for the comment.
Portugal is a friendly country. I am a suspect indeed but believe me, it is true.
People are OK and kind.
Perhaps too kind in political terms but hei, that is not our point here ;)
Do you know Edward Burtynsky work ? Some shots are in Portugal. Have a look. The images are outstanding ! I am a fan of his work !

Do you work with Cactus ? I have a couple of them. Still trying to get the most out of them.

Cheers ! :)

"I've become very picky. Most of my outings these days do not yield satisfactory photographs because what used to be satisfactory to me in the past no longer is. I make much fewer images today than I have in previous times, and I expect this trend to continue.
