Very pretty, Su.
Love how the light in the arches lights up the entire length of the bridge.
Very well done.

Susana Matos January 31, 2004

Hi William, so nice to read again from you! This is not a sunday walk, but as it was taken on summer when people are on holidays and walking around to visit, it gives that mood... I think!? Regards, Su

Hi Patricia, this is by the end of the day, I went there because it was the hour when ducks are feed, and then as I was walking around I saw this light on the arches as well as on the buildings and the people over the bridge... it is quite nice to be there watching it!

Hi Robin, well Ponte de Lima is my most frequent subject, I go to the center when I want to make a break and there is always something to shot...

Hi Doug, that´s nice you mentioned the windows, I think it´s quite nice to see those different windows from this side of the river.

Bonsoir Dominique, et c´est mon petit village encore une fois!!?? ... Si petit et si photogénique!! Merci, vraiment!

Cheers from Ponte de Lima, Su
