Photographer's Note

I was kind of sad for not having posting any Christmas postcard, so here you have the best I have arranged. Sorry for being late. :-)

I shot this a few hours ago when I was coming home ('-( unhappily I have to go to work tomorow), using a wooden pole as a tripod. Apart from a crop and rotation for straightening, there is no pp here. Technical data: 1 sec, f5.6, 45 mm focal distance (equivalent to about 94mm on a 35mm film SLR).

What you see here is a 12th century castle built in a small island of the Tagus river by the Templar Knights. Before the Templars built the actual castle, there was a Moorish (Arab/Moroccan) fortification and before that there was another one built by the Romans.
