Photographer's Note

The picture is taken from Ponte do Infante, close to the old town of Porto. The light, coming from the left of the image, is something rare in Porto. The reason is, that you need a relatively clear sky in the morning. From what i experienced, this is rarely the case and Porto will be covered in fog and clouds in the morning, even in july, seldom Clearing up before 12 o'clock. But this one day i was lucky (it was the only day out of 10).

The bridge over the Douru river is Ponte Dom Louis and connects Porto to Vila Nova de Gaia on the left. On the top left there is the Mosteiro da Sierra do Pilar, an old monastery, nicely illuminated at night. Around Ponte Dom Louis is also the place where all the Port Wine destilleries are located, and the tourists... A short stay there is more than enough :-) This city offers so much more to see!
