Long shadows and a long coast line. I guess this month doesn't feel quite as long though around your home turf.

A fabulous panorama, Jose! I wonder what kind of shape the cathedral is in...it's for Americans to imagine something that old!

A truly exquisite shot - I love the clarity on this image ... the few I took on the Tagus were hazy - I guess from (heat) humidity ...
