Bridging the Moon

image by Miguel Claro, Lisbon, Portugal

I took this 3 images yesterday 17-06-08 in the "Nations Park", at Lisbon, Portugal, where they held the world exhibition EXPO98, in 1998. In the picture I try to capture the moonrise with the view of the largest bridge in Europe, the "Vasco da Gama" bridge, in Lisbon. with a total length of 17.2 km (10.7 mi), including 0.829 km (0.5 mi) for the main bridge, 11.5 km (7.1 mi) in viaducts, and 4.8 km (3.0 mi) in dedicated access roads.

1. Additional music: David Gilmour's four guitar notes on "Shine on you crazy diamond" (on Pink Floyd's "Wish you were here"). The same effect as the inquiring five notes in Charles Ives' "The Unanswered Question"!
Wonderful photograph Miguel!
