photoblog image Parque das Nações, Lisbon

Parque das Nações, Lisbon


Walkway and bridge separating the River Tagus from the calmer waters close to the Oceanarium. Above is the cablecar that runs the whole length of the promenade/walkway/esplanade, stopping close to the Vasco da Gama tower (pictured yesterday).

In the distance are the towers of the suspension section of the Vasco da Gama bridge over the Tagus, which is currently the longest bridge in Europe, at almost 17.2 km (10.7 miles) in length

Like the composition ellie perspective works really well
What a fabulous perspective Ellie!
A great composition Ellie..you did yourself proud.
Ellie! Thank you for posting this! I'm working on a project looking at using air-trams in Canada's urban areas right now and I didn't know about this cablecar. Is it primarily for tourists or is it more focused on moving people, residents, accross the river? Is it tied into public transit at all?

In the next few days I'll post some photos I took of the air tram system in Portland smile

Thanks and a lovely photo! I love the reflections.

Iain.
Nice choice of composition Ellie and a great reflection in the water.
