I can't make out that pop of red against the wall in this fine image.

I would love to emerge through that archway to see that scene and to become a part of it.

@Brattcat: I think it's a hydrant.

I love it when you can use an arch or something as a natural frame. This is just lovely!

such a beautifully framed image.

A beautiful view framed through the arch.
The builders (and the photographer) new what they were creating.

A beautifully framed shot - and the cobblestones add interest to the foreground. Sintra is definitely on my wish-list to visit.

Fabulous view, fabulous light, eh, simply fabulous photo!

Gunn said...

What a lovely view, and what a nice "framing"!

Irina said...

Somehow this beauty feels cold. Winter shot?

VP said...

I remember that, I climbed up there a long time ago!

Randy said...

What a lovely view. I love the old stone walkway.

Jack said...

Scenes always look great when viewed through an arch with cobbles below. Lovely.

Joan Elizabeth said...

This is such a wonderful old world image for me. The cobble stones, the buildings seen through an ancient archway.
