View of the western coat of the freetown peninsula.
Completly forgotten and with a complicated acces, those 50 km of coatal jungle is only with few spots of fishermen villages and expats bungaloes.
Can speak about any benefit for this place as the country was struggeling the past 10 years of civil war (ended in 2002), but the fact is that this zone is almost untouch and gives the feeling that you are a portuguese explorator landed here around the 14th century. Hope it will saty as it is or not transfigurated with concrete and mass tourism...

J'aime cette photo d'un pays totalement méconnu, si ce n'est pour ces tristes années de guerre civile.
Cette plage est magnifique, sauvage et préservée. Puisse-t-elle, comme tu le dis, le rester longtemps.
Du point de vue photographique, j'apprécie les rochers du premier plan ainsi que la courbe formée par l'anse. La présence du petit personnage rouge apporte un point d'accroche appréciable.

Thanks for this fine photo from a country that doesn't have many photos on TE. I like very much the panoramic crop, and the great rendering of light and the textures in the sky. Your photo captures the changeable weather very well. The sunlight on the waves is lovely. There seems one tiny figure on the beach, clothed in red - I like the human presence in the picture. A great shot, deserving of more recognition. Good note, too.

This is a beautiful seascape, with excellent composition - love the rocks in the FG leading off to the sea and the diagonal line of the waves - and great rich colours.
And I share your hopes for the preservation of this special spot!
TFS and have a nice day,
