Under the morning sun

Click on the photo to enlarge it and have a better view of one of the seven hills in Lisbon, having São Jorge castle on top (conquered to the muslim by the first portuguese king in 1147).

That is gorgeous and the beautiful railing at the bottom frames your shot so well. A beautiful sight as I sit here looking at yet another gray day. Thanks JM!

Your blog is doing Portugal an immense amount of good in the tourism stakes, JM. This photo shows me there is much to explore.

So Lisbon has seven hills, too? Seven must be the magic number. The railing and lamp nicely frame this shot.
