Foto Friday CXI

IMG_4639

This picture was taken in the gardens of Quinta da Regaleira, one of the sites of interest in Sintra, Portugal.  Sintra is a unique city on it’s own, and these gardens were an excellent way to spend the afternoon.  I saw my first live cork tree, a California redwood, and many other cool trees and plants.  The gardens were also full of underground passages and tunnels that we could explore.  I recommend taking half a day to visit this place should you ever find yourself in the area.  I like this picture because the sun acted as a perfect natural spotlight for this flower, and you can see my fellow photographer and tour guide being silly in the background.

1/250s f/5.6 130mm ISO 500. No adjustments.  Au revoir until next week.
