I'm a huge fan of the curve of the arch JM, so this is a winning image for me! I see you are a Shakespeare enthusiast also!

Lowell said...

It is quite beautiful and very long and love the arches but think it might need a bit of restorative work - like paint?

I'm glad you included some human figures as they give a sense of scale.

Your arcade triggers many happy European memories. Arcades give shelter from the sun and rain and are great places to keep a tryst.

Quite elegant and so nice in case of rain...

I want to be there to walk under the arches to the other end. :)

You have certainly put Portugal and Lisbon on my list of places I need to see - and want to see!

I like the side lighting on this shot, how long is that walkway exactly?

Gorgeous. Reminds me of place des Vosges in Paris, though the colours are different...

While I had this photo on my PC screen, my husband just looked over my shoulder and said, 'Isn't that lovely.' I couldn't agree more!

That's gorgeous and I long to walk through those bands of sunshine.

Love the contrast between the curves in the roof and the straight shadows.

Kay said...

Perfect shot! I love arches and the ironwork of the lighting is beautiful. I'm becoming a great fan of Portugal!

Beautiful corridor.

That is beautiful, JM. There should be a name for a photograph shooting down a series of columns, where the columns shorten evenly and the eye travels toward a vanishing point. I have a dozen photos like this stored for use some day . . .
