Photo of the Day (5-13-09)

First, the composition and colors of this photo caught my attention, and then I wondered where this Buddha statue is. Using t3mujin‘s tags “Quinta dos Loridos” and “Portugal” as clues, my impression is that this gem is among the statuary at the Quinta dos Loridos winery estate. The estate is one of four that produces Bacalhoa wines. From the looks of this place, I’d say that the gardens are just a few of the pleasures.
