    Working on the JPGs from SWMBO's Point & Shoot used on the balcony outside our room at Quinta de la Rosa looking up the Douro River towards Pinhao. Am sure I must have something that will challenge this for the title!

    That's a beauty, Mike.

    Ah, but you have to do it with a gin & tonic (scotch in your case) in the other hand Donald!!
    I've got a feeling I've started something here.
    Thanks for looking.

    On the Douro it's got to be with a 30 year old Tawny Port (which it was!!).

    I’m sure they look fine on a large print but for this size of reproduction, I’d clone the birds out because they are more a distraction than a point of interest.

    I’ll dig out a hotel balcony shot later…

    Ah well, maybe it doesn't compete. But the memory will remain for ever!
