A nice beach in Nice in the French Riviera. It is pronounced as 'niece' in English. It was odd to see no sand and only stones as well as a 20 euro fee to use the roped off umbrellas and deckchairs. In Australia the beach is public property and there are no fees to use the beach although certainly it costs money to use the carpark nearby! Taken late afternoon. But the Mediterranean was clean, clear, cool and refreshing on a hot Summer's day!

Hello Chris ,
A luminous and well composed picture , for this beautiful urban beach .
In France most of beaches are free , and in my region , Brittany , there is not any private beach .
of course , this is not the same on the "Cote d'Azur" , but even there , you can use without any fee three meters along the water line .

Ce n'est peut-être pas une plage de sable blanc mais le principal c'est de prendre du soleil et de se baigner. Une très jolie vue avec la ville derrière. Le petit pont avec les deux roues est original et très intéressant. Les roues, est-ce que c'est pour le déménager en hiver? Bel éclairage et parfait rendu des couleurs.
Toutes mes félicitations et bon dimanche,

Une superbe plage de galets avec en fond une magnifique vue sur la ville de Nice. De belles couleurs et une belle lumière qui donnent des envies d'été.

Hola again Chris
Nice is nice, , but also the title could be Discovered! because the fair woman at the back is reallly interested in your activity
Good beach composition where I like the wooden structure with wheels, never see it, must be very old
Like the mix of blue and white, very mediterranean capture
Hope you stop to rest here for a while
In Argentina beaches can´t be owned by particulars

Belle vue sur la plage de galets qui longe la Promenade des Anglais. Le point de vue est bien choisi avec cet alignement de chaises ainsi que le petit quai de bois avec ses grosses roues. Bonne profondeur d'image. Bien fait.

nice Nice, I would say. Such a famous beach but would I like to spend 20 euro for this deckchair? If some celebrities were close, than maybe.. Rather not. I prefer sandy beaches. Australian beaches have sand and are free but unfortunately crocodiles, sharks and sea wasps like them too.
But no need to spend money, one can walk free I suppose. Excellent shot with a big depth and amazing sharpness.

A very attractive summer scene with this stony beach. A fine cityscape behind the sun worshippers here.

a place that was one of the first I visited in Europe and I can see little has changed. Like this view along the beach which looks just as overcrowded as on my visit. Give me an empty beach any day, but this town does have a grace, elegance and sophisticated charm about it which this shot captures.

At the Belgian coast must one also pay for a beach chair, but along the water is everything free.
But the Belgian coast is very nice sand beach.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture attractive.
Excellent perspective and depth picture.
Wonderful composition, nice presentation.
Very we done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Beautiful and inviting place, even though one has that rocky beach instead of all the sand one can found in some other places, like Australia and Brazil!
Here we also have public beaches most of the times and in most of the places!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your Sunday,

The length of the beach is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the people enjoying the sun at the beach. The quality of the light is ernhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.

Indeed, nice, great Pov, on to this beech scene, you were getting an eye full from one of the tanners.
Love the wheeled jetty so bathers can get swimming deeper off shore. Super Dof, showing the town.
Love it, Tfs,

Good evening Chris,
I was about to say that the French-Riviera beachs are known for the topless lady-tourists, but none was on the scene - so taken back this notion...
Fine beach scenery, far DOF till the town houses on far, and vivid tone added by the morning sun-bathing small crowd. every pebble stone are shown in great sharpness.
PaulVDV (20703) 2014-02-27 12:18
An extremely high amount for using the deckchairs and umbrellas but I'm sure that at the Côte d'Azur you will find quite a lot of people with well-filled purses :)
A beautiful, colourful and very sunny picture with an excellent depth.
Best regards, Paul
