I love the way you've cropped this JM, to give us a part of the fountain and all of that amazing stone bench.

Looks like a good place to sit and meditate.

The bench with the fountain really adds to the shot. Nice composition.

The light on the water is just perfect. A very delicately beautiful shot.

So, even in Portugal, you can have some grey, rainy, foggy days... Such days can also be nice - now and then! :-)

How to use colors to render a great gray. Perfect framing and composition, love the title and the atmosphere.

Love the gray stone bench.
Gray=old=beautiful.

Very nice photo, JM. Caught the dripping water perfectly...and the bench in the background brings the whole thing together.

That bench looks rather hard even on a sunny day...but a gray day! Yikes!

Day is quite gray here too! Rainy and cold, good for staying at home and sipping some (Portuguese) wine!
God bless you!

I can almost hear the trickle of water this photo is so well done.

Hi JM,
I've been enjoying your blog for several months - ever since I learned that my family and I will move to Oeiras City in January. Do you or your readers know of any houses for rent in the area?

Enough sun for some nice reflections in the water

I really like how you took this photo. is an original point of view, a different perspective, unusual.
Beautiful shot!
