The bridge in pink


A sunset over the Tag river, Lisbon, Portugal.


A story behind: We spent a couple of days in Lisbon. Going to the capital is always "such fun" ( please don´t laugh but I am a huge Miranda TV series fan ): new restaurants to discover ( Cantinho do Avillez was such a nice surprise ) and new places to explore ( Lx Factory ).  
Late afternoon I went to photograph the Vasco da Gama bridge. Took my full stop filter and had fun. The sunset was pinkish. Enjoy.

I try not to punch my photos with too much saturation so usually I downgrade the saturation by generally accepted rule of thumb 10-15%. Set the aperture at 18 to get most of the sharpness from my lenses. Full stop filter gave me a nice 260 seconds shutter speed.
