The beaches of Nazare

Decades ago, Nazaré was a small and humble fishermen town of the Atlantic Coast. Nowadays it has becomes one of the main beach resort of Portugal. Be it in the tiny streets by the beach, or on the neighbourhood located over the cliffs, it will be tough to spot a fisherman. And don’t be fooled by the net on the third picture, the only catch it might get is a football.  (click on pictures for high res).

Note that the last shot was taken with a marvellous 50mm F2 Nikkor-H from 1951, such a great lens for a sunny day. It was lent to me today by Miguel and  Gina, our wonderful hosts during these days in Central Portugal.
