Hello friends and colleagues , today I present a view of the avenue Duque de Nájera or Boardwalk Beach Caleta in Cadiz , I hope you like it , then a few letters of the city.
Cádiz is a city and municipality located in the Spanish province of Cádiz , in the autonomous community of Andalusia in the extreme southwest of continental Europe . It is the capital of the homonymous and adjacent province Jerez de la Frontera is one of the two principal cities in the metropolitan area of the Bay of Cádiz -Jerez , third population center of Andalusia and one of the most economically active and industrially , in Andalusia, Spain . Also conforms with the municipalities of Chiclana de la Frontera , El Puerto de Santa María , Jerez de la Frontera , Puerto Real, and San Fernando Rota the Association of Municipalities Bay of Cadiz. Today Cadiz is known for his long and influential history, one of the oldest cities in Western Europe and archaeological remains dating back 3100 years, not only nationally but also for its importance in processes such as the Punic Wars , Romanisation of Iberia, the discovery and conquest of America, the establishment of the liberal regime in Spain with its first constitution and its subsequent influence of this for made independent constitutions of the former Spanish colonies. The history of Cádiz is typical of a city marked by its strategic military and commercial situation , halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. It is one of the oldest Phoenician settlements in the West. Since its founding by the Tyrians , according to the classical tradition 80 years after the Trojan War ( 1104 a.) , Was a city facing the sea and trade. Her left Hannibal to conquer Italy and Julius Caesar himself was granted the title of civitas federata the Roman Senate. The city reached great prosperity in Roman times . Amphitheatres , aqueducts and becomes the second most populous city of the Empire for a short period are constructed . During this time living in the city more than five hundred equites ( a caste of notable citizens ) , rivaling Padua and Rome itself. During the crisis of the third century of the Roman Empire, the same drop this and Visigothic conquest , the city enters a significant decline , entering a dark time and losing the provincial capital and its commercial and strategic importance . The collapse of the commercial networks of the Empire, Gades as necessary to any coastal city, did most . The style of wide open city of antiquity slowly gave way to a small walled city, style common in the Middle Ages . Desperate economic necessity , many of these ancient inhabitants of Gades were forced to give up basic rights for protection of large landowners and peoples from the interior , for example Asido Caesarina Augusta. The first became a middle class of free citizens called colonus . The city was conquered by the Byzantines in 522 , conquered by the Visigoths in 620 and conquered by the troops of Tariq ibn Ziyad in 711 , the Battle of Guadalete . During that time he demolished the statue of Hercules, in the temple of Hercules. The reconquest of Cádiz is included in the recapture of the Guadalquivir (1243-1262) , incorporated in 1264 to the crown of Castile. Not until the Reconquista when it They establish in the Bay of Cadiz shipyards actual Crown of Castile and the beginning of the Age of Discovery , when the city emerges with great momentum. From left numerous ports discoverers like Christopher Columbus or Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, and conquerors in colonial times , which allowed the rich and centuries later , the creation of a bourgeois , liberal and revolutionary society. As a city that had the monopoly of trade with America , home of the House of Trade and Fleet Indian , was the scene of numerous naval battles and creating the first Spanish constitution . In 1766 Carlos III definitely promoted the emancipation of Lion Island with the foundation and appointment of the first session in the new detached villa by Royal Decree with the name of Villa de la Real Isla de León . In decline, after his involvement in the War of Independence and sunk after the loss of Cuba , the city does not stop growing in population ( in the sense of benefiting rural exodus , especially from the Janda ) , until the early nineties and especially from the period 1996-2010 , a period in which around 20,000 have left the city of Cadiz . So far it has not regained its importance at the state level .

un bel POV valorizza al massimo questo soggetto che ha i colori e la luce dell'Andalusia.
Il cielo azzurro e il selciato dominano la scena che disegna yuna Cadice poco conosciuta e molto bella.
Straordinaria anche la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona settimana

A splendid long perspective along this promenade with the tall building at the end making an imposing focal point, to which we are guided by the lamps and trees. A well presented image with good lights, colours and sharpness.

Ce grand ciel bleu est une invitation à se promener sur cette très belle allée en bord de mer , ou bien à descendre sur la jolie plage agrémentée de barques et de rochers .

This time you are showing us the modern side of Cadiz. It's very pleasant to see the palm trees lined street under the crispy blue sky. People must enjoy this sunny place very much.

Una vista magnífica de este encantador paseo, que da una gran perspectiva a la foto, precioso POV al captar en el mismo el fuerte y esa bonita sucesion de farolas, las palmeras dan el precioso complemento vegetal.
Maravilloso dia para disfrutar del paseo por un sitio tan idilico.
Un hermoso colorido, gran luminosidad y perfecta nitidez.
Un buen trabajo amigo mio.
Feliz inicio de semana.

I enjoy the luminosity of this picture very much, the light is delicious and even the heat feels pleasing:) A well balanced composition with repeating patterns, intriguing splitting perspectives and vast depth. A very agreeable place for a walk, a bike ride and a swim, very nice details all over. As in so many of your photos, I like very much the vastness, smoothness and colour of the sky. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

anche in questa foto ci sono il vecchio e il nuovo che convivono, del resto la Spagna è una nazione che ha una lunga storia e molto spesso le architetture devono convivere.
Ottimo scatto, con le diagonali dei lampioni e delle palme che danno profondità a tutta la foto.

Belle perspective sur cette promenade en bordure de la plage sous un ciel magnifique. Belles couleurs. Bien fait.

Good morning and have a nice day

This is an excellent shot of the palm lined prom by the sea. Excellent perspective created by the row of palms and lamp posts. I like the excellent clarity of the image aided by the bright light. The cloudless blue sky is contrasting the scene beneath very well. Nice photo with superb colours, wonderful light and sharpness. Thanks for sharing with an elaborate note.

Excellent view along the nice sea walk. I like the arrangement with diagonally placed street lights and the superb contrast against clear blue sky. All in very good light, excellent clarity.
Very well done.

Hola amigo Àngel,
una composición con una luz espléndida, que no todos saben controlar tan bien, dando unos colores tan llamativos y bien saturados.
El punto de vista es magnífico y nos introduce a caminar por este paseo marítimo, para poder ver mientras caminamos las bonitas vistas del mar.
Gracias amigo mío por mostrarnos estas tomas tan hermosas, del sur de nuestra bonita España.
Muy buenas noches y un abrazo,

Thank you very much for your interesting notes, also speak you no English.
I know it's very difficult an other language, friends of us out of the dansschool, the woman learns Spanish, makes regular a trip to Barcelona, but I understand no Spanish.
Your picture is sublime, taken out of a very good angle, this gives depth and perspective.
Colours and sharpness are perfect made.
Excellent composition and perfect presentation.
Very well composition, nice done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Fine bright day to take a stroll along the beautiful promenade on the seashore, Angel.
DOF and clarity most notable, and the chosen POV show both modern and ancient edifices.
I like those lamp-posts along.

RhodieIke (11742) 2014-03-27 11:30
Your Pov, on this promenade, makes us want to wander down and see what is at the other end.I can make out a square white object, perhaps a sculpture.
Well managed and presented, Tfs
ChrisJ (100136) 2014-03-27 11:56
Good graphic elements added by the dark lamp posts against the lighter blue sky with excellent lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective added by the esplanade receding into the distance. Good density and saturation. Tfs!
fabbs99 (16739) 2014-03-27 22:46
Excellent composition of the Streets of Cadiz .Very well composed photo with excellent vivid colors in strong daylights. TFS.

nikkitta (14992) 2014-03-29 12:35
Creo ya haber visto este paseo. foto tuya? al que recuerdo bien por los artisticos faroles de hierro y al otro lado las palmeras
Esta avenida o paseo costanero tiene gran perspectiva y profundidad que se pierden en el gondo
Todo realzado por un magnifico cielo azul

Intéressante perspective sur cette corniche sous une belle luminosité ambiante
Une image appréciable
jacquest (18811) 2014-03-30 12:24
Your angle of view is very interesting as it gives a lot of deepness and let's the eye glide to the high rise building, making it a good focal point. As usual, the light is superb, giving good colors and sharpness.
Kielia (23777) 2014-04-01 5:52
modern architecture is not my cup of tea but this picture is my cup of tea! It's a good presentation of the building and the promenade. The photographer’s perspective is excellent. My compliments!

Many thanks for the elaborate history lesson that recalls the arduous labor of ancestors for giving life to Cadiz.
I appreciate in this well-balanced picture, composition-wise, the elegant decorative edges standing on each side of the coast path appearing quite inviting for a bike ride!
