Hi TE friends
Today, I did a break, in the series of pictures from Porto, to show you the sunset in Lisbon. You can see 25th of April Bridge and in background Trafaria town. You can take the boat from Belem Pier in Lisbon to Trafaria and go to the Costa da Caparica beaches.
The 25 de Abril Bridge is a suspension bridge connecting the city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal, to the municipality of Almada on the left bank of the Tagus river
Trafaria. is a Portuguese town and a parish, located in the municipality of Almada. It has a population of 5,946 inhabitants and a total area of 5.83 km².
Costa da Caparica is a Portuguese city and a parish, located in the municipality of Almada. It has a population of 11,707 inhabitants and a total area of 10.88 km². Costa da Caparica is a city since December 2004.
Caparica is known for its numerous beaches. The beaches are very popular in the summer, due to their proximity to Lisbon, which is located across the Tagus River from Caparica. These beaches have suffered from erosion in recent years. The Portuguese government has taken steps to reduce these patterns, but the erosion has continued at several of the beaches located closest to the mouth of the Tagus.
Campings and Parks
The main parks and attractions in the parish include:
• Camping Orbitur
• Clube de Campismo de Lisboa (Lisbon Camping Club)
• "Lugar Ao Sol" Inatel
• "Praia da Saúde" ("Health Beach") - Municipality of Almada Camp Club
• "Praia da Mata" Sociedade Filarmónica U. A. Piedense (Piedense Philharmonic Society)

cadrage très judicieux, équilibrant bien tous les éléments. Un contre jour bien négocié pour une scène reposante.
My best regards.

The low POV and the positioning of the sun create a perfect sunset summer atmosphere and beautiful ship sihouettes.

De très belles couleurs et un superbe coucher de soleil.
Tout bon cadrage qui donne un beau graphisme.

Excellent scene for a sunset shot. That huge bridge is impressive of course. Silhouettes of ship and harbour are interesting and saturated red sky is beautiful.
Didi (60588) 2009-08-14 3:48
Very good game play with the exposure, the sun is not burned and your composition has a good frame quality.
rigoletto (34279) 2009-08-14 6:44
wow, beside the colors and composition, i am in awe of the sharpness here. so minute details, none of them intersecting nor lost. very good lens (though it is Nikon, LOL)
rodgerg (55767) 2009-08-14 11:37
Very superb sunset with incredible and very nice colors. The "desicive moment" well collected with the sun well locatd in the BG. The silhouet of this famous bridge and the another sikhouet give a very nice graphic effect.
ciakgiak (30431) 2009-08-15 14:34
con ritardo ma con grande entusiasmo critico una magnifica composizione, con un taglio perfetto, una grafica accattivante e degli splendidi colori.
Un caro abbraccio.
eversmile (11636) 2009-08-15 23:34
That's gorgeous. I love the colors, the sharp silhouette of the bridge in the backlight, the half sun taking its bath in the sea. Well framed and excellent exposure. Great work. Congratulations.
pauloog (11751) 2009-08-17 7:20
A beautiful scene with the bridge and ships contrastign so well against the marvellous sky.
amazon (12112) 2009-08-18 5:32
I remember the Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul for a moment, but here the sun sets a little more right, the colors are very beautiful ,
coco (30439) 2009-09-24 12:44
