The 25 de Abril Bridge (Ponte 25 de Abril “25th of April Bridge”) is a suspension bridge connecting the city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal, to the municipality of Almada on the left (south) bank of the Tejo river. It was inaugurated on August 6, 1966 and a train platform was added in 1999. Because it is a suspension bridge and has similar coloring, it is often compared to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, USA. In fact, it was built by the same company (American Bridge Company) that constructed the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and not the Golden Gate, also explaining its similarity in design. With a total length of 2,277 m, it is the 23rd largest suspension bridge in the world. The upper deck carries six car lanes, while the lower deck carries two train tracks. Until 1974, the bridge was named Salazar Bridge (Ponte Salazar). The name “25 de Abril” commemorates the Carnation Revolution.

The Christ the King statue (Portuguese: Cristo-Rei) is a Catholic monument and shrine dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ overlooking the city of Lisbon in the central part of Portugal. It was inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), after the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon visited that monument. The project was inaugurated on 17 May 1959, at a time when Portugal was being ruled by the authoritarian President of the Council of Ministers António de Oliveira Salazar (permission to build the monument was ultimately decided by this ruler). The giant statue in cement was erected to symbolize the gratitude the Portuguese were spared the effects of World War II.

Horizon Stars on Flickr.One of my first star trail experience. Starting short after sunset, with Venus going down, this photo was achieved by stacking 50 exposures of 30 seconds.
My main goal was to capture the star trails but keeping the trees in horizon gives it dimension.

Familiar Paradise on Flickr.This is a little hidden beach in Zambujeira do Mar, Portugal.
I tried to capture a paradise look in this small place. Sometimes we keep looking for the several paradises in the world, but close from home we can find the prettiest one.
