I really like the view from below.
I suppose you were swimming with your camera in your teeth. LOL MB

Beautifully composed!

Jacob said...

Another fantastic composition...and one can see the mist in the air! Just perfect, JM!

The Tagus - is that not the river Columbus sailed down?

Leif Hagen said...

A heavenly photo of Christ the King overlooking the water! Perfect for Sacred Sunday!

I'll echo the others: great perspective!

VP said...

One of my magic moment in Lisbon was crossing this bridge coming back from visiting the Cristo Rei statue.

JM said...

@VP: I think I know what you mean, the view of Lisbon as seen from the bridge is gorgeous whether it's day or night. Shame we can not stop there to take a shot! :-)

Pat said...

I love the angle of this; I feel like I'm there myself standing under the bridge. Also, I love the statue of Christ in the background.

great perspective. I love bridges to walk on and under. I like the powerful color red of this bridge also.

Francisca said...

Looking at the exchange with VP, is this a train or car bridge? Nice angle.

JM said...

@Francisca: It's a car and train bridge.

Rob and Mandy said...

There used to be a very excellent fish restaurant on the Cacilles side of the river, near the bridge, just off your photo on the left side. Wonder if it still exists. We'll see in january, spending a wen Lisboa, can't wait!

Lois said...

Absolutely beautiful JM!

I can only say that I find a great photo, worthy of reward. I recommend that you use it for the Theme Day for January.

I crossed this bridge a number of times last summer! Beautiful bridge (but noicy) and view!
