Fine, I just go to “manual” focus.. but this was VERY hard with such a tiny viewfinder. (one of the drawbacks shooting with a Nikon D3000)
Actually catching the focus of this painting is not the easiest thing I have done. But I ended up satisfied never the less :o)
O vão (comprimento do tabuleiro) do viaduto central é de 420 m. Foi construída a fim de constituir uma alternativa à ponte 25 de Abril para o trânsito que circula entre o norte e o sul do país na zona da capital portuguesa.
Aquando da sua construção foi necessário tomar especiais cuidados com o impacto ambiental, visto que atravessa o Parque Natural do Estuário do Tejo, uma importante área à escala europeia de alimentação e nidificação de aves aquáticas. Foi também necessário proceder-se ao realojamento de 300 famílias.
O nome da ponte comemora os 500 anos da chegada de Vasco da Gama à Índia, em 1498.
É uma das mais altas construções de Portugal, com 155 m de altura.
To foreigners visiting Copenhagen the Royal Danish Library appear to be merely a quite boring and very 3 dimensional square black building. This however is exactly the architectural intent, as the Danish National Library hold treasures from ancient legendary mythical times, not meant for foreigners to behold,
Using both modern building technology combined with old danish traditional mythical design, the renowned danish Archwizard Per Kirkeby managed to create a octagonic dimensional foundation out of a black hole containment field, able to simultaneously support eight different structures at the same time yet with different physical location in dimensional space. Which is why the building among danes is known as ”The Black Diamond.”
Obviously as you clearly see, finding the way around inside the black diamond does prove quite challenging, even to danes, but eventually one get the hang of it and with knowledge one come to, well.. realize the true depth and many facets to it. It is really hard to explain to foreigners which is why, I thought, the prudent thing to do, was to simply take a photograph of it ;o)
Anyway, I stuck around looking for a unique angle that hadn’t been done before, how hard could that be? Those other pesky photographers finally left and I was about also when I looked back and noticed that the Blood moon had popped up over the bridge. How lucky is that? I quickly took my shot and I think I may be the only person in the world to have a shot of the Blood Moon over the Golden Gate.
I currently in negotiations with Hogwarts to have this hung in the grand hall, but I wanted you all to be the first to see it.
