That monument..especially with the figures overlooking the sea and bridge beyond has to be one of my favorites. Fantastic series and post-

This monument represent a moment in history I cherish, the age of discoveries, in which Portugal had so an important part.

I'm sure the monument in itself is a beauty yet that beauty is so enhanced by your angle with the moon!

Beautiful photo! The moon on the left (I hope that it's the moon:)) makes it mysterious. Superb capture.

I truly love this monument...when I taught American history we always watched a video series on Columbus and this monument played an important part!

Bob Crowe said...

I sure remember this from our visit to Lisbon years ago - it's something that sticks in your mind. We were there in blazing sunshine. I think it's more impressive at night.

Fabulous composition with the moon!

Dina said...

Wow, the moon there makes me think how brave they were to follow the stars into unknown oceans.

On the shoulders of giants... Elegantly captured, as usual.

Looks like a very interesting monument! Is Leif Eriksson, the discoverer of American included?
