Hello friends and colleagues , today I offer a nice view of the Caleta beach at low tide, with their little boats typical moored and the castle of San Sebastian to bottom right , in the ancient city of Cadíz , I hope you like it , then a few letters on the beach.
La Caleta is a beach located in the historical center of the city of Cádiz ( Andalucía, Spain ) . It was natural harbor where boats are anchored Phoenicians , Carthaginians and Romans.
The beach is less extensive citywide , and isolated from the rest . Its main attraction is its location , a scenario that has inspired musicians and poets such as Isaac Albéniz, José María Peman , Paco Alba or Carlos Cano. The flanking the castles of San Sebastian and Santa Catalina , off the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration (former hospital Mora) and by the Faculty of Labour Sciences Campus of the University of Cádiz same name.
It has been the scene of several movies such as 007 : Die Another Day , Alatriste, Manolete and El Amor Brujo .
Cadiz consider it one of the most emblematic places of the city , being recurring theme in Carnival songs .
Currently hanging over Caleta threat of works promoted by the Consortium of the Bicentennial of the Constitution of 1812. Such works include , again according to the original project, published in the BOP of Cadiz , an extension with four crossing points , Paseo Fernando Quiñones (which is the road that leads to the Castle of San Sebastian ) , pouring cement on the stone oyster , and a dock for boats up to 15 meters on the north side of the said castle, with consequent dredging .
These news are being answered with many public demonstrations by university professors and lecturers and especially through mobilization Saving the Caleta Platform , which narrowly won in a week, about 1,600 claims against the pier project and that leads you collected more than 4000 signatures in an attempt to protect the beach and scenic , biotic and cultural environment through the declaration of the same as protected Natural Monument.
One of the things that makes this beach so unique is that each stone has its own name , for example : the quadratic stone, reonda stone basin , " Stone Hedgehog ", " sprig ", " the flagstone " .

i colori brillanti della primavera Andalusa con i suoi cieli azzurri e le spiagge assolate.
Una Cadic poco conosciuta ma degna di essere ammirata.
Ottima la nitidezza ed eccellenti i colori.
Ciao e buona serata

A beautiful summer image for someone like me actually buried in snow. The distance gives deepness and I like all thse small boats waiting to take to the sea. Good colors and sharpness.

When the weather has been cold and wet for many weeks, a postcard like this lifts the spirits. It reminds us that there will be an improvement and we have sun, sea and relaxation to look forward to.
A fine panorama of the shore, with lots of details of people relaxing and some preparing to venture out to sea.
My warm regards,

Although it was taken on late spring, the shore looks as in the middle of a hot summertime.
Fine bright daylight, depth and good clarity - all collected superbly.

hi Angel, Such an idyllic beach scene, no wonder people flock to these places, it is so beautiful! I love that you have used the rule of thirds so effectively here, the lower third filled with the beauty and excitement of the beach, while the remainder gives way to that immaculate blue sky. Fantastic place and capture.
All the best

What a beautiful beach scene. The relaxed and leisurely atmosphere is very well captured in the image with the sunbathers. Love the blue of the sea mixing in the blue of the sky over the horizon. Wonderful shot with good clarity, vivid colours and superb light. Thanks for sharing.

Una esplendida y maravillosa imagen, que nos trae nostalgias del verano, precioso POV de la playa de la Caleta, con parte del fuerte a la derecha de la imagen, la presencia de la gente, y tantas pequeñas embarcaciones en el agua, crea una imagen muy dinámica.
Buena iluminación y nitidez.
Muy buenos colores, en este dia tan luminoso.
Muy buen trabajo.
Pasa una buena tarde.
Un fuerte abrazo, amigo mio.

Très jolie présentation, la vue sur la fortification, la mer parsemées de petits bateaux et les personnes sur la plage, assit, coucher, debout, chacun dans des positions différentes, une image agréable a regarder

this is such a beautiful light, its clarity and warmth are fantastic. I love the bright, rich and vivid colours it's produced. Warm and cold tones have been strongly affected by its brightness and it's interesting to see how no colour has been compromised by the angle of the light. Clarity is exquisite, the scene and its atmosphere inevitably get us into the summer mood. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
