A Walk Along The Tagus River At Dusk

Last Sunday evening, I went for a walk with a friend along the Tagus river (Tajo), which circles Toledo. I’ve done this walk dozens of times, it’s just ten minutes from my house, and it never gets old. Our walk took place in the evening as the sun was gradually setting, the river was eerily still, and the light amazing.

The bridge featuring in last three pictures is El Puente De San Martín, (Saint Martin’s Bridge), one of Toledo’s two ancient bridges. You can read a couple of interesting tidbits about it in this post, and admire its handsome structure close-up and in daylight.

    I love the first picture of the bridge… You can really see the shape of the clouds against the blue, blue sky. The reflection in the water is beautiful too 🙂

      I dunno… somebody who cleans and does the ironing… sounds a pretty good deal to me! Now, if I wasted less time on blogging and wrote more paid words, I might be able to afford to take him off your hands 🙂

    Wow, these photos are incredible, and while the views were great in person, I almost want to say that the pictures do the scenery too much justice- especially in terms of masking the murkiness of the water! What the pictures don’t necessarily reveal, of course, is just how nice the temperature and humidity level were, as well (unlike in my apartment, unfortunately), and overall I’d say it’s pretty tough to find better ways to spend a Sunday afternoon.
