Étretat is a commune in the Seine-Maritime department in the Haute-Normandie region in northern France. It is a tourist and farming town situated c. 32 km northeast of Le Havre, at the junction of the D940, D11 and D139 roads. It's located on the coast of the Pays de Caux area.
Étretat is best known for its cliffs, including 3 natural arches and the pointed "needle".
Two of the three famous arches seen from the town are the Porte d'Aval, and the Porte d'Amont. The Manneporte is the third and the biggest one which cannot be seen from the town.
In the picture we see the Porte d'Amont.

Cette falaise est toujours aussi majestueuse^^ J'aime bien le point de vue avec les galets vus de pret et la douce lumière.

The photo is full of an overwhelmingly fascinating collection of textures. The lighting also is very exquisite. I love those round pebbles in the foreground; they are so dynamic. And the texture on the wall to the right side is also very attractive. Stunning contrast and colours, this photograph and the others in your gallery are full of captivating images. The use of a wide-angle lens is very effective in creating the perspective needed to produce the impact this image has. How fascinating!!
With my very best and kind regards,
Have a very pleasant week, Monika

Très bonne présentation de cette Porte d'amont grâce au grand angle qui permet un cadrage généreux.
Superbe premier plan qui conduit bien le regard vers la falaise. Bon cadrage, belle définition et netteteté ainsi que de belles couleurs naturelles.

Great hsot, beautiful light after sunset, I assumed, but there is sill lovely glow of the light illuminated the "Big Wall" This is one of the few that I saw of this cliff from down here at the beach, usually they are taken from higher up. I love how the little pebbles seem to all running in toward the sea. All lines leading toward the main part of the wall, the arch, that reaches in to the ocean. Just perfect composition and good light. Excellent quality, color is natural and beautiful without over saturation.

Beautiful picture with a lots of details
(rocks, stones, sand, water, etc.) but
the great composition (and point of view)
makes the picture nice calmness. The
light management is also great.
p.s. thanks for your compliments by my
