Raining in the city and the waterfalls of Nabão River in Tomar

As you can see, this was a rainy day in the City of Tomar in Portugal. It was October 2010 and depending on your perspective this was either bad or good weather. I quite enjoy rainy days and this was a good opportunity to once again put my camera into action. As everybody knows, when it rains the result is that the volume of water in the river increases and the small waterfalls of Nabão River (Rio Nabão) may follow. These shots were taken when I was crossing the old bridge of Tomar to the other side of the town, coming from the street Rua Marquês de Pombal.
