Thank you Dan and Wendy! I don´t understand why but it´s the second time I have comments on the same photo in different links.
Dominque´s comment was there.

Thank you and hope you like Ponte de Lima, after listening from me this name so frequently!

Cheers from Portugal, Su #721146

This is sooooo beautiful!
Such a beautiful composition with the bit of a branch and leaves pointing at all the beauty within this image.
I just love the cobblestone walkway, and how it bends into and out of the frame.
The river and its reflections are fabulous, as is the stone arches in the bridge.
The city is colorful and charming with the wonderful architecture and the rolling mountians just beyond.
The sky is full of light and texture and subtle colors...
So lucky are the couple strolling through this scene!
One of my favorites of all your beautiful works, Su!

Superbe Suzana !
Ponte de Lima comme je ne l'avais encore jamais vu.
Les couleurs sont magnifiques. La composition est bien faite ...le reflet de la ville dans le rio Lima, le couple sur le bord du chemin, ce ciel un peu triste,
la perspective du pont qui traverse le fleuve. Superbe quoi !

Thank you ALL so very much for your presence and words!
I think my town has a kind of romantic feeling that inspires me as you have already seen it over the last year of photos.
This one is a special one when I look at the unmanipulated photos I have from Ponte de Lima. It shows, I think and hope... that special romantic mood I feel when I walk by the end of day ... but never during summer, when there is too much people as to get such a photo!

BILL, thank you, I am very pleased you liked that much. I though about you when I posted this one!

Cheers from Portugal, Su

Fabrice, Merci! Comme tous les endroits un peu touristiques, les meilleures photos sont toujours prises hors saison... moins de voitures, de gens et plus de contact avec la nature et le caractere des endroits!
Je suis contente que vous ayez aimé, elle était dans le jardin, mais je sais bien qu´il y a trop de photos dans un si petit espace pour les mettre en valeur!
