The photographer: Kelsey Peterson of Sacramento

Behind the lens: In 2012 I was studying at Pepperdine University's London campus. Several students took a weekend trip to the small northern Portuguese town of Porto to enjoy some warm weather in February. I thought the two boats, loaded with wine kegs, showed off the beauty of the Douro River near our apartment. You can easily walk the town in one day, but be aware that it has many steep hills.
