CP 1220 waits to depart from Panóias with R4808 the 11:38 Funcheira to Casa Branca, this train at the time was usually worked by a NOHAB railcar but due to the ‘Festival do Alentejo’ this service was strengthened with a locomotive and two coaches. Monday 6th August 2001

Shortly after this picture was taken CP dispensed with the class 1200's. The station of Panóias didn't last much longer and the only trains to use this section of track now are freight services to the mine at Neves Corvo. The section of the Linha do Alentejo which ran between Ourique and Beja has also been mothballed.

Monte da Rocha Reservoir, Panóias, Alentejo, Portugal.

This monumental flood discharger, a circular sink of concrete with a diameter of about 20 meters that I expected to see and photograph sucking the waters to its interior, was the main reason to visit the “Monte da Rocha” reservoir. Back home, researching for this trip, I was impressed with some pictures of the surreal effect of long exposures of that gigantic drain and got determined to repeat the image without major concerns of originality. Unfortunately, I would not be able to collect this other trophy picture because of the naive oblivion off a crucial detail: there were at least fifteen days since the last raindrop fell in the Alentejo and, of course, the waters were quite below the level required to occur any surface discharge ...

Albufeira do Monte da Rocha, Panóias, Alentejo, Portugal.

O monumental descarregador de cheias, um sumidouro circular em betão com um diâmetro de cerca de vinte metros, que eu esperava ver e fotografar sugando as águas para o seu interior, foi a principal razão da visita à Albufeira do Monte da Rocha. Ficara impressionado com algumas fotos do surreal efeito de uma longa exposição naquele ralo gigantesco e estava determinado a repetir a imagem sem grandes preocupações de originalidade. Infelizmente não conseguiria mais essa fotografia troféu em virtude de, ingenuamente, ter esquecido um detalhe fundamental: há pelo menos quinze dias que não caía um pingo de chuva no Alentejo e, naturalmente, às águas estavam bastante abaixo do nível necessário para ocorrer qualquer descarga de superfície…
