Great lightening. I like the way it looks.
It really looks like the bridge is going right over the marina. MB

That's one broad river, judging from this long beautiful bridge.

Blacklight goes very well as a title for such intriguing shadows!
God bless you!

It reminds me a bit of a bridge near where Louis lives. It looks great with the sunlight behind it!

You've shown this bridge before and it is always a delight to see it again through the "eyes" of your camera...this is a particularly nice shot because of the way your composed it, as it draws the eyes across the Tagus, but also because of that superb light that falls lightly like soft-falling rain on the many aspects of the photo!

Elisa said...

Your sunset capture is amazing :)

Genie said...

I am another viewer who thinks it makes her think of the Golden Gate Bridge....it is really high! Love the little boats under it moored at the docks. Great shot.

J Bar said...

Wonderful bridge photo.

The light (and dark) areas of this photo really set it aside. The bridge has such graceful lines as it intersects your shot. Very nice!

VP said...

An original perspective with a great light. The star is always the bridge, but you included a lot of interesting distractions.

Lois said...

Spectacular picture JM! The light is absolutely gorgeous.

Photo Cache said...
