Just coming home from Portugal, the Coast of Algarve, Evora and Lisbon including Sintra and Cascais / Estoril with almost 300 photos copied and given titles in my iPhoto Library. Will present some of them in My Gallery after returning from this week´s visit to Hospital and Wales.
However, it is Monday and time for Odd Shot. This monday´s motive is from the UNESCO World Heritage Site Sintra, (40 min west from Lisbon.) No comments needed by me, but you are welcome to evaluate this photo and see more Odd Shots at Katneys site.
On the First monday of the month I also have to present "Broer som Binder" managed by RuneE .
Of course Bridges from Lisbon are my choices on the May Monday, and I start with the Free Waters' Aqueduct from 1732. The aqueduct and its branches are total 58,135 meters in length.The next Lisbon Bridge is 25th April Bridge or Lisbon´s Golden Gate. The bridge is 2.278km long between its anchorages with the main span being 1.013km long, and was opened in 1966. The last Lisbon Bridge is Vasco da Gama Bridge. This magnificent structure was opened on 29 March 1998. It is an amazing 17.185km long and connects the north Lisbon suburb of Sacavém to the south bank of the Tagus near Montijo. The bridge includes viaducts of 12.345km, the rest of its length being approach roads. I had to use three shots to catch the length from north to south.For more information of the bridges, (and may be professional photos) go to The Luso Pages
