photoblog image Parque das Nações, Lisbon

Parque das Nações, Lisbon


Vasco da Gama Bridge

A small section of the Vasco da Gama bridge crossing the River Tagus at Lisbon, looking east.

This is the longest bridge in Europe at a little over 17 miles.

I liked the contrast between the heavy lorries crossing the bridge and the ordinary people doing what they do best - fishing from a specially constructed pier.

(embarrassed to note that the horizon is not quite level)

17 miles...wow that ia a long bridge. Excelent shot. I like hte lone truck in the view.
Very good image Ellie, I like the way all the lines lead to that one point on the right. I'm not sure I'd feel happy travelling across a 17 mile bridge, it's a long way to shore when you reach the middle.
