The foggy evening

An Arrábida bridge seen from the Southern bank of the Douro river.

A story behind: Finally yesterday, after 2 long months of high temperatures and pale blue skies, the weather in Porto started to change. In the evening the chilly and full of moisture breeze came from the sea. I crossed the bridge and found myself on the Southern bank of Douro river looking for a nice spot. A thick fog wrapped around the illuminated Arrabida bridge. I set up my camera to B&W and the wide 16 mm lens did the rest of the job enhancing the curvature of the lower arch. B&W additionally "cleared" the image reducing a number of the unnecessary details.
