Because of the high temperatures lately (about 30 degrees Celsius), we've marched into summer with only few days of spring. So, my wish to be on a beach is closer to be real :D
This was taken in Cascais, Portugal. The town is surrounded by popular beaches, such as Guincho Beach to the west, and the lush Sintra mountains to the north. Some of its shoreline is cliff-y, attracting tourists for its seascapes and other natural sights such as the Boca do Inferno. It is also becoming a popular golf destination, with over 10 golf courses nearby. Surfing, sailing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing are also popular in the region around Cascais due to favourable weather, wind, and sea conditions. In 2007, Cascais was the official host of the ISAF World Championship in sailing for dinghies and racing yachts.

A very nice shot. What a beautiful place. Very well framed the composition. The clarity, sharpness and lights superbly managed.
Have a nice week.

I am glad it is warm where you are, here it is dry and bright but generally quite cold except for the odd day in between. A pleasant reminder of the summer in this well presented composition. I like the point of view and the choice of the vertical format; both help emphasise the graphical lines of the parasols. Nicely lit with good colours and sharpness.

Ce n'est pas l'endroit parfait si on recherche une plage déserte mais pour ceux qui sont confortables dans la foule c'est parfait. Le cadrage vertical donne une belle profondeur à l'ensemble.

another great shot from your trip to Portugal.
what actually caught my attention was the umbrella with the white and green circles, it stands out well with all the white umbrellas :)
as you say....bring on the heat!!
lovely warmth and colors in this photo

From your picture, this is a very nice vacation destination indeed. It is pleasant to see the crispy blue sky and the white beach umbrellas.

Bravo et amitié

bella composizione che lascia all'azzurro del cielo e del mare la metà circa della composizione per distribuire l'altra parte in una bella visione di spiaggia, rocce e case dai colori molto piacevoli.
Un angolino di Portogallo bello in fotografia ma ritengo non solo per quello.
Ciao e buona giornata

a shot full of appeal, especially as it is a good 20 degrees lower here on the south coast of England :-(. Sun is shining but the wind is blowing from the north yet again - so freezing unless sheltered. A glorious beach scene that looks idyllic and beautiful. A perfect execution and presentation.
Have a good week - Brian.

O veritabila compozitie de vacanta care ma face sa-mi fie dor de mare! Foarte frumos!
O seara buna!

The beach looks a bit crowded but it is very nicely situated and the colours of the photo are superb. I wouldn't mind something like this in spite of the relative crowds. At least it's about 10-12 degrees in southern Sweden now, so maybe spring has arrived.

la piccola spiaggia sembra molto frequentata.
Bellissima la luce che fa risplendere mare e cielo.
raszid62 (18515) 2013-04-29 15:46
Nu-mi place când plajele sunt acoperite cu aceste umbrele comerciale, dar imaginea este foarte interesant, prea rãu cã acest loc minunat, astfel commerce site-ul martie Mare culori și fotografie de calitate mare.
delpeoples (58356) 2013-04-29 21:40
A beautiful beach view, I particularly like the graphism of the umbrellas in the foreground. The colours are sensational, and that limpid water looks so inviting, I need a swim right now!
Un caro saluto
jjcordier (79297) 2013-04-29 22:12
Une belle et lumineuse composition verticale. Ces parasols bien alignés donnent de furieuses envies de farniente au soleil!
siudzi (34141) 2013-04-29 23:08
I miss the summer hot days and looking at your post is a pleasure for me. Very well seen and executed scene with amazing saturation effect which makes the view extremely attractive. TFS. Like it!
UlfE (14641) 2013-04-30 0:12
Very nice and colourful beach scene. The POV is well-chosen and I really enjoy the way the parasols form diagonal lines. Also a really fine composition with the inclusion of rocks, the beach the sea, sky and the buildings. Excellent colours and sharpness. TFS and have a nice day!

very interesting seaside shot from Cascais with a perfect composition and very good colrs. Gives some holiday feelings to me.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

That is close to the beach and the sea, a bit too close for my taste. Excellent POV, you really tried to find the best spot to take the picture, and light management. Well done
ourania (46364) 2013-05-03 5:07
you enclosed so much interesting information in this vertical frame, everything's arranged in a very elegant and comprehensive way. The description is aided by a most effective sense of depth and a superb clarity that gives us a very vivid impression of details and textures. The strong light hasn't compromised the quality of the picture at all, you've captured its warmth really well. Excellent light and contrast management has offered lovely vivacious colours. I like very much how you've captured the details and atmosphere under the parasols. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Pff mon cher Daniel tu poste trop vite pour moi, j'arrive plus a te suivre :-))
Très joli coin de plage entre les rochers, l'aperçu sur la couleur de l'eau est sublime, la présentation magnifique en pleine saison d'été, trop de monde pour moi, je choisirais deux mois avant ou un mois après :-)
mkamionka (37247) 2013-05-15 8:02
beautiful small beach. So pity that it is so densely covered with the umbrellas. I like very much your presentation, showing well the context of the beach,
