Locks on Douro

The trip along the Douro involves passing through 5 locks the highest of which is 35 metres.  They are extremely efficient in operation, the whole process takes about 45 minutes and your on your way.

This photo was taken with the iPhone using the hipstamatic app which finds the smallest amount of colour in the scene and does magical things to it.  To the eye this scene is grey concrete and monochromatic steel, but that's not how the hipstamatic sees it at all.
