Photographer's Note

Always to Sintra, the Castelo dso Mouros (the castle of the Moors), fortress of the VIIIth century, set up by the Moors, when they occupied Portugal.
Today it is very well maintained ruins, and are the place of very pleasant visit that contrasts with the magnificent gardens and kitsch of the Palacio da Pena.
Down from ramparts, we have a magnificent sight on Sintra and on Lisbon but this morning there there was a thick fog, but which gave a mystic charm to these ruins...

Photo originally argentique , pulled by the CD of the laboratory photo, what explains the noise.
I removed the color to give it a more mysterious aspect.

In french, moorish (maure) sounds like dead (mort). So this tree is a dead moorish tree !
