Premium/ Exploring the Enchanting Schist Village of Talasnal: A Photographic Journey
Tucked away in the heart of Serra da Lousã, Talasnal stands as a testament to the resilience of traditional Portuguese schist villages. With its narrow labyrinthine streets and charming details, this village exudes a timeless beauty that captivates visitors.
Embarking on a photographic journey through the cobblestone paths and quaint houses of Talasnal, I aim to capture the essence of a place where history and nature merge.
Arrival to the Enchanting Village of Talasnal
The journey to Talasnal is not for the faint-hearted, as a winding mountain road leads the way to this hidden gem. The skies, threatening rain, add a touch of mystery to the adventure. Undeterred by the weather, the determination to explore one of the most beautiful schist villages in the region prevails.
Even before reaching the village, the allure is undeniable. The urge to capture the picturesque scene is so strong that I stop the car, and the camera comes out. This impromptu decision to photograph the village from a distance sets the tone for what promises to be an irresistible visual experience.
Choosing the Right Equipment
As the village comes into view, I face the dilemma of selecting the right equipment to do justice to Talasnal’s beauty. The Fuji X-E3 with the XF14mm F2.8 will be perfect for capturing the splendour of the village’s architecture, complemented by the trusty X-T2 paired with the XF18-55mm F2.8-4.
