Photographer's Note

From May 17th, residents of the United Kingdom are allowed to travel for leisure to few chosen countries which were marked by government as “green”. One of them is Portugal. In fact, it may be the only traditional holiday destination from Britain which has been opened for now. Even for a “green list” country we still require two Covid tests, one before coming back and another after return. This sets a new cruel standard for those who enjoy international travel. Before I can go anywhere, I must wait for school break yet. In the meantime, the “green list” may change, let us hope for better. It has inspired me to look into my photo archives for pics I took on my trip around Portugal.

We arrived in Porto in the late afternoon. I knew already that for the blue hour I want to reach Ponte Dom Luis I, amazing bridge over river Douro, with a breathtaking views from its top deck (about 45 meters high). I have showed before a more classic view from this bridge here:
