Vasco da Gama bridge, Lisbon
« on: April 14, 2014, 04:49:29 am »

This is an often photographed location, I think it still holds the title of longest bridge in Europe, not sure though. Anyhow, I went there a few days back to take some shots during sunrise, and it was a bit foggy.

Shots taken with a Canon 6D, Zeiss 21 ZE, and 100 macro.

Kind regards.

Sunrise and fog seem to suit the Bridge. The second shot caught my attention ... unique even for an oft photographed bridge. Lovely captures, thanks for sharing.

All three photos are very nice but my preferences goes to #1 (for the curves) and #3 (for the atmosphere). Photo #2 is also interesting, a bit more complex with the bench, the bump and finally, the bridge. I'd need more time to appreciate its elegance, I guess.

For me, too, the first and third are terrific. Magical light.

Paulo,

Love them all.  And the name resonates (there's a city in Goa named after Vasco da Gama).  He was first buried in Cochin (in the state of Kerala), later the body was moved to Lisboa.

Very nice set.  Yes, 1&3 are probably better images but #2 made me smile even though I don't like graffiti.  :)
