Mangalia is a port city and tourist resort in south-eastern Romania. The area has been inhabited since the neolithic. In the VIII - VI centuries B.C. it was colonised by the Greeks. The name of the city that they built was Callatis. in the year 71 B.C. the Romans conquer Callatis. The city Callatis was abandoned by the 7th century A.D. Instead, starting with the XIIIth century A.D. documents speak of a new city, first called Pangalia, later Mankalia. It is believed that the Turks gaved it its final name - Mangalia, since it was hard for them to pronounce Mankalia.
The beach is 600 meters long and 50-150 meters wide and has a very fine sand; the sea water is not very deep - 1 meter by the shore to 200 meters in the open sea and for this reason it is preferred by the children who cannot swim.
The city divides in 2 sections: Mangalia North that features the resorts Olimp, Neptun, Jupiter, Cap Aurora, Venus, Saturn and Mangalia South that features the commercial harbor as well as the shipyard.
Mangalia is also a balneoclimateric resort. Annual average temperature stand at 11.2 degrees Celsius. Lake Mangalia (who's surface stands at 261 ha) is supplied by rich sulfuric mezothermal water springs. They are employed in treating degenerative rheumatic diseases. Mangalia is the only maritime resort to have mineral water springs!

Hello Daniel. Away from town and toward the water. The view of the boats across to the horizon is very beautiful and atmospheric. And the moon in the sky is a nice addition.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

A well composed image featuring this marina. I like the subdued light and muted tones.

J'aime ce cadrage vertical qui inclut bien la lune dans l'ensemble.L'atmosphère qu'elle dégage est celle du calme avant la nuit.

Hello Daniel - A super composition with the rigging of the FG boat creating attractive patterns across the sky. The warm low light just paints the masts and adds and pretty colour contrast. Such a calm image with the soft blues and a sliver of moon. Warm regards Rosemary

Intéressante composition verticale utilisant bien la proue du voilier. Joie lumière avec la lune en guest star.

Good Morning Daniel,
This really suits me, with the strong close-up anchoring the f/g and setting the scene for what is to follow. The prow sets a fine diagonal line across the frame whilst the dangling flag gives colour and an unusual focal point.
Have a lovely day,

a nice atmospheric shot with just a hint of golden light on the mast of the boasts in the background. I especially love the small but so clearly visible moon in the shot.
have a great sunday

Belle lumière de fin de journée avec la présence de la lune, le cadrage de l'avant du bateau avec le petit tissu colorée qui semble flotter dans l'air
