Photo in the Park D. Carlos I in Caldas da Rainha, the building on the side of the photo is a thermal hospital ( SPA )Rainha Dona Leonor
Founded in 1485 by Queen D. Leonor, Caldas da Rainha Thermal Hospital is the oldest in the world, which has opened 5 centuries ago. In the 15th century (1485), Queen D. Leonor has founded a bathing institution and a thermal hospital, Caldas da Rainha. Legend has it that in 1484, the wife of King D. João II, was travelling to Batalha, and when she passed by the place where the thermal stations would be built, she saw a few poor people bathing in “warm waters pouring through the steaming fountains”. Curious, she asked them what they were doing there, and they said that they were finding the cure for their illnesses and pain in those healing waters. D. Leonor thus decided to provide better conditions for water users. Thermal Hospital pavilion, built in the end of the 19th century, is a fine example of thermal architecture with its high windows.
This green location soon became the place, where thermal hospital patients used to walk. During Marques de Pombal period (the second half of the 18th century), it was transformed in a Baroque garden that was called Passeio da Copa. Redesigned in the end of the 19th century by Rodrigo Berquó, it took the shape of the current park and a lake was added to it. Game fields, former hospital pavilions, painting and sculpture José Malhoa Museum are located here.

ottima questa tua foto di oggi sia per composizioneche per soggetto.
I colori del paesaggio incantano anche se forse hai leggermente ecceduto nella saturazione, che se da una parte rende la foto più piacevole, dall'altra falsa leggermente la realtà.
In ogni caso una buonissima foto.
Ciao e buona serata

The different colours of the sky are wonderfully reflected in the lake, beautifully crossed by the high leafless trees.
Best regards, Paul

The reflections on the water of the lake are assets to the composition. The wideness of the lake is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the reflections. Have a nice day.
GiovanniG (3573) 2013-04-16 21:13
What a wonderful capture of this beautiful scene. The colors, detail and perspective are well done. Bravo Goncalo!
Royaldevon (40336) 2013-04-16 23:49
A different view and with a different emphasis. Here, the lake produces a most attractive f/g with its lengthened reflections of the trees. This is a scene only possible at this time of year, for later in spring and in summer, the trees would obscure the view of the red-roofed hospital.
Fine dof and lovely colour saturation.
Have a lovely day,

Ola dear Goncalo
Such a beautiful scene, so tranquil, with wonderfully rendered colours and reflections. The reflections of the clouds are particularly luminous and attractive.
Excellent photo, absolutely superb

Excellent detailed picture with pleasant colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

this beautiful lake looks so English. Love the tall trees and reflections, it is a captivating mixture of blue and green. A tranquil and attractive atmosphere pervades the whole scene.

a very very interesting place for
everybody to wal around

kato (11630) 2013-04-18 6:06
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm/small lake, surrounding trees/greenery and the historical hospital with the red roof. Here looks like a good place for relax from the surrounding rich nature. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color tone/combination. And, the shadow projected to the lake draws out a good effect.
sacavem (18620) 2013-04-18 10:01
Já passei ferias na Caldas, um local agradável, pelo menos à anos a trás.
Quanto à foto é um grande tiro.Pov e reflexos fazem uma boa composição.Parabéns.
danos (99870) 2013-04-18 11:01
nice the view of the place with teh thermal hospital to be hidden behide the high trees.I like the created reflectios on the calmly surface of the lake, as the excellent presentation of the scene.
macjake (69815) 2013-04-18 15:13
I have a question...what's a "Thermal Hospital"?
what do you mean by that? just curious...
looking at it from here, it looks rather old, is the building a red brick construction? I'd love to see more of it.
but for now i'll have to settle for nice water reflections :)
Nicou (145224) 2013-04-19 1:26
Mervielleux reflet de cette nature quelle charmante image et compo quelle vue sueprbe avec en fond cet édifice splendide.

Fabulous park view, with blue mingle with green in fine contrast under mild daylight.
Houses seem well through trees, and a nice reflection collected on calm water's.
Bom fim de semana,
josepmarin (58359) 2013-04-19 11:25
Olá, amigo Gonçalo,
tu composición es agradable y atractiva, has buscado un buen encuadre para captar la belleza del parque y sus preciosos reflejos sobre el lago.
Me gusta la débil luz de la tarde y la potencia cromática de la foto.
Pili e Josep

The reflection is beautiful like a painting. The sharpness is pristine with balanced framing. Superb image and thanks for sharing.

Beleza de lugar com lindos reflexos. A foto transmite uma paz encantadora. Bela história da construção deste lugar. Muito interessante a sua nota.
Angshu (56760) 2013-04-30 6:35
Like the reflection on the lake waters...not exactly a mirror image but a mildly disturbed image & I loved it with the colours and the symmetry of it
abmdsudi (55658) 2013-04-30 9:50
A photogenic lake view in glorious tones, lighting and the promising atmosphere complemented by lots of interests particularly the lovely lush trees adding so much beauty and the catchy calm reflection has further enhanced the strength of this shot. Indeed you have turned this serene spot into a great picture. A superb piece of workmanship. Congrats.

Un endroit semi naturel qui m'en rappelle bien d'autres en Belgique, sous une latitude bien différente. Beaucoup de verdure bien colorée, inondée de lumières bien maîtrisées.
Un cadrage efficace et une mise au point précise.
