Heading down the River Tagus

By Focus_Man
At the risk of boring you with yet another picture from our recent cruise, I had to dash up onto the top deck early in the morning to catch the sunrise. I found the Queen Elizabeth directly ahead as we sailed towards the April 25th Bridge in Lisbon. The red sky had disappeared within 5 minutes or so which made my sort of limping, struggling dash up two decks to the top. Our balcony only afforded us a partial view, up on deck the views were tremendous.

It's very a very good view of the "25th April" bridge in the "Tejo" river. I'm portuguese and this made me home sick as I live in London. The Thames doesn't look like this... Good image and thank you for sharing. IB

The layered sunset colours are beautiful, Frank, though I bet you're sorry to have missed the redness. I like your tale of running on deck, I've done it and got the T-shirt. The wake adds interest to the water and the little boat in the foreground gives perspective to the QE.

Hi Frank,

Just passing through while I'm waiting for the sun to come out so that I can mow the lawn.

Now then, after reading your description why do I have a picture of "Wee Willy Winkle" running through my head Grin
You've captured a good scene here with feeling, nice shot.

Take care
