Great delpeoples 2011-12-04 20:34

Ciao caro Donato

Ahhh, I thought Douro might have meant the same thing that d'oro means in Italian. Because this composition is just golden with those wonderful tones dominating the cityscape so beautifully. And of course our Sea Wolf has included a boat in the frame, which balances the image and adds another element of interest. The reflections along the banks of the river are enchanting. What a beautiful place!

Un abbraccio e ti auguro una bella serata
Lisa

Default To delpeoples: Douro/d'oro

Hi Lisa,

I'm glad you noticed the resemblance of Douro/d'oro, actually that is what I had thought myself!

D'oro (golden) in Portuguese is "D'ouro" so it's likely that this is the origin of the name. Probably in time the apostrophe was forgotten...

and this is also the title I choose for another photo of mine:

Ciao e grazie del bel commento,

Donato
