Ponte Romana, Ponte de Lima, Portugal

The beautiful Ponte Romana, or Roman bridge, is just one of the highlights of the delightful little village of Ponte de Lima.  There’s always something going on in the town, from concerts and art shows to an annual auto rally.  But the bridge was what touched me.

It was raining the day we visited, but sometimes there are benefits to photographing in the rain.  Colors stand out more against the darker skies.  In this photo, the yellow umbrella really stands out.  The other colors- the yellow street lamps and the red roofs of the church and buildings on the opposite side of the river, are also quite striking.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
