Terreiro do Paço (III)


High tide at the old Column Quay, the south side of the square (see previous posts) bordered by the Tagus River

Love this picture and the birds look so happy sitting up on top! Diane

You will have to show us the same scene at low tide some day! I'd love to see what those columns are attached to.

c'est un beau reposoir pour les oiseaux ;o)

I like this view. It's something different.

What a great place to be. The birds on the columns and the blue of the sea.

I like this, the birds on top of the columns, the person looking out at the water, and the water itself, just so calm and peaceful.

Calmo cenário, azul e belo!
Adorei a composiçao com o participante especial do lado esquerdo da foto, maravilhado certamente com a beleza do lugar!

So what does this look like when the tide is out? Well you will just have to show us. MB

Simple and beautiful, one of your best pictures lately. I hope you'll continue this series!

And a bird on each one to complete the symmetry! I really don't mean to be a bother, and I know you've already given me a Moorish history lesson, but would you mind explaining the columns?

I want to be in this photo! Wonderful shot!

More delicious blue and white, though a little more subdued here.
