Heavy rain greeted us on the one day we were in Sintra (After Cascais, Cabo-de-Roca and later on Obidos). So the one thing I could have done was to take the best on what time had offered: I clinbed the small allies to a lookout on some veranda and taken this picture, got wet... as part of the mission...

Rain in Sintra, what a bad luck. iIt is such a delightful place with so many things to visit. Nice view, with so much green and some red roofs but with the white sky it is not as with the blue one... But nothing can be done with it.

Lep kisni dan sa pogledom na put, drvece i lepu arhitekturu, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar ugao snimka, tekst i trenutak, lepe boje i fotografija.
Dobar rad i prikaz kisnog dana.

It is sad when you travel and you dawn a rainy day. For me it is the worst of the elements. In this picture with the varied and beautiful colors of green, the influence of rain is less apparent, only indicates the gray sky. Nice building close group and red roofs.

In spite of the rain, you captured the nice and green atmosphere of the place, sintra is one of the nicest places I've seen in Portugal.
Ike, I'm having a lot of problems with TE, do you have problems too?

Pretty little place but ALWAYS HUMID!!!
There was a restaurant in a corner that had 2 Brazilian parrots in a cage; one "talked".
Spent about 7 months at B.A.#1 in Granja do Marquês learning to fly the T-6 [Harvard].

During a rainday makes you the best color, perhaps always a white sky.
Heavy rain is not pleasure during a vacation, but the castle in background between the green trees is pleasant for look at..
Nice composition good of colors.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
PS: Thanks for e-mail

after two days with the system (site) to be collapsed i'm back to see beautiful photos like this one.
Nice the panoramic view with the heavy rain to make the scene more effective.The curve of the road make the image more interesting.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

inquadratura particolare con la cintura della strada in basso e una bella tonalità di verde a ravvivare la giornata piovosa.

Hi my dear Ike
Wonderful shot again!
Fish eye lens makes a very good atmosphere and impact indeed. This is also perfcet framework, very well consided composition and clear description in the detail as professional level. Vertical format is the best selection. Thanks for your sharing with your fine job and have a good weekend!
end! best regards,

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the tower which is giving depth to the composition. The trees are framing well the street and the buildings. The rain has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

a not usual view from sintra. I liked the humid mood despite this is a disaster for a tourist. anyway sintra and lisbon are so close but their climates are so different.
here we are facing a small winter , summer will begin in few days

I thought Rain was only my friend but looks like you also get along well with it. Pictures taken on rainy day give out more beautiful colors . Nice view with the castle in the back surrounded by green trees.

It looks like Portugal is wet and green in October. This is a charming bend in Sintra. You may have discovered, in the 6 years since this photo was taken, that pre-adjusting your camera by pointing it higher to include more of the sky and then pointing lower helps eliminate the washed out sky on a day like this. It works better if you're shooting RAW.
