That is a great shot JM! I like the light and shadow.

I am sure I am wrong, but this looks like a strong breeze might blow this over.

The world should have more arches, everywhere.

BTW, did you see the amazing Flash Mob at Lisbon airport on YouTube? Great fun!

JM said...

David, these arches date back to the 18th century... :-)

I guess it is a real arch, made by stones and very well, if it is there since 19th century. A very elegant construction.

Beautiful archway. Everything is made so utilitarian today. MB

It definitely doesn't look like a square but a random arch in wilderness :). Great POV

You have such gorgeous light there and you make such excellent use of it.

It looks like a very old arch. Handsome.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas, JM. Wishing you a joyful, peaceful and love-filled new year.

What can I possibly add except that you did a grand job shooting this one. Just a beautiful old arch. So much character.
