Photo of the Day (07.06.08)

Flickr user wesleyrosenblum has decided to let us in on a secret – Lisbon is one of the most picturesque cities on earth. This photo looks like it was taken from atop the hill that’s occupied by Lisbon’s Castelo São Jorge, the magnificent castle that guards this ancient port city.

I like the way the cannon “pokes” out into the middle of this view, looming over the city below. I also like the way the field of view is split neatly in half, with little puffy clouds floating above and ancient terra-cotta-roofed buildings laying underneath.

Have any photos of a panoramic view in Portugal? Or maybe just a picturesque shot from Portland, Oregon? Add it to our Gadling photo pool on Flickr and it could end up as our Photo of the Day.
