Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer another nice photo taken on the beach of La Caleta, with their small boats typical moored in the foreground and the wall of defensive bastion of the castle of Santa Catalina in the background, in the ancient city of Cadiz, 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 in which boats anchored Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans.
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 (former hospital Mora) and by the Faculty of Work 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 oyster stone, and a dock for boats up to 15 meters on the north side of the said castle with dredging accordingly.
These stories are being answered with multiple public demonstrations by university professors and lecturers and especially through mobilization Platform Save the Caleta, 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", "purl", "the flagstone ".

These boats remind me the dead or helpless fishes on the sand. The grey wall looks like a big cruiser. Amazing composition, I have a lot of ideas about.
macjake (63232) 2014-08-12 11:37
easy to see why you wanted to photograph this one.
theres something so interesting about seeing boats when the water tide is out.
its fun to see the boats turned over onto their sides and seem to be a little disorganized, i like that.
excellent bg subject too.
nice light and subject choice

This is an excellent composition of the many small boats stranded by the low tide beneath the old fortress. It's a well balanced photo with nice details and very good colours.

bellissimo luogo e bellissimo momento, le barche sono uno splendido "pavimento" per l'antica fortezza.
Tra un mese verrà mia figlia a fare un giro da quelle parti.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-08-12 16:35
Foto super atractiva por ser hecha en la gama de mi preferido color azul
Me gusta el reflejo de los botes que ayudan al contraste y las formas como se apoyan en la arena causada por la marea baja
Buena la inclusion del antiguo edificio
Buen trabajo, saludos
Increible que esta playa este en el centro de una ciudad
rychem (30395) 2014-08-12 22:01
Thats right, it is an interesting scene with boauts during the low tide, very well captured, excellent captured and presented
emka (89461) 2014-08-12 23:49
Splendid view of the fortress and small harbour near it. Unfortunately, I was too short time in Cadiz to go there. Marvelous colours of the sea and sky. Haha, Serghei is right, the small boats look like fishes in sand.
Of course I remember you friends, give them a big hug from me when you see them again.
Have a great day

I was there a couple of years ago in January, and the weather was just as it appears in this photograph, though the air temperature was probably lower. A very well-achieved compostion, with the solid wall jutting into the frame, the sea and old breakwater beyond, and, nestling in the sheltered foreground, a gaggle of little boats stranded at low tide. Nice one!
Nicou (133510) 2014-08-13 1:36
Avec toutes ces barques de couleur en premier plan presque à cale quelle vue le fort en fond ce rendu sur les pierre cet éclairage et tons merveilleux Bravo et amitié
Royaldevon (34773) 2014-08-13 2:27
I am not surprised that this has been used for the prestigious movies you describe, for it is a most attractive location.
Boats always make interesting subjects and here, you supply us with a lot to enjoy, in a variety of poses! A fine composition with sharp details.
ourania (39016) 2014-08-13 3:03
the layout of this scene is superb, I like very much the well balanced contribution of each of the elements included in the frame. You framed the scene very smartly, each of the elements is clear and well defined, there's a fine arrangement of lines and the horizon is also excellently placed. The textures enhance the natural aspect of this graphical composition and the colours are beautiful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
snunney (92616) 2014-08-13 4:14
A delightful composition with a pleasing blend of diverse elements. Agreeable light and colours; excellent sharpness.
krzychu30 (15510) 2014-08-13 4:27
what a magnificent scene my friend!
Really like the way you composed the image and the juxtaposition of boats and the Bastion as a backdrop.
Good light and nice,well-saturated colors certainly help you to create so pleasant atmosphere of this scene.
Have a nice day

very fine view from La Caleta in Cadiz. Excellent composition, fine colors and sharpness. Reminds me my visit to wonderful Andalucia.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

Good contrasty light. Old fortress makes a good colour combination with blue sea and sky. I like how those little boats are scattered on the low tide mud field. Looking the sea at full size tells tales of rather strong postprocessing.
jacquest (18919) 2014-08-13 14:43
I like this low tide scene with the snall boats in different positions. The texture of the stone wall is also interesting and the distance on the water adds deepness. A good ligh brings out colors and sharpness.
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-13 19:16

npecanhuk (72092) 2014-08-13 19:49

Bon cadrage et bon POV, une très belle photo avec de superbes couleurs et lumière.
Bien vu ce premier plan composé de bateaux.
maria-v1981 (10932) 2014-08-14 6:26
Nice view of all the small boats moored in the sand because of the low tide. There is an excellent symmetry of boats here and a good composition with colourful details and strong light.
Have a nice evening,
Tue (31064) 2014-08-15 3:19
Great photo of this little harbour at low tide. I find it a nice detail to see how some of the boats lean to the right and others to the left. Well composed with the castle in the background too.
adramad (42045) 2014-08-15 9:37
Sensacional esta preciosa foto de La Caleta, con la marea baja, un POV sensacional con esa esquina del fuerte y las pequeñas barcas varadas en el limo.
Un color esplendido que realza la imagen.
Muy bien la luminosidad y la nitidez.
Bien visto y mejor realizado, amigo mio.
Que tengas un feliz fin de semana.
Un fuerte abrazo.
eldancer1 (33953) 2014-08-15 14:13

Cricri (113671) 2014-08-16 5:53
Des couleurs et surtout le bleu apaisant et agréable, bel avant plan des bateaux, très belle composition
ikeharel (65269) 2014-08-18 9:10
Low tide where the boats anchored, "parking" along the BG of the ancient walls on the waterfront.
Super clear photo, light management and depth well composed.
PiotrF (13424) 2014-08-18 11:56
Nice view of the many small boats. Interesting notes.
Excellent composition, colour and presentation be superb
Very well done

The castle of Santa Catalina appears as a giant cruise ship sailing on the open seas, escorted by dolphins playing a continual coming and going around her majesty!
Very attractive take, indeed!
Didi (59738) 2014-08-19 9:15
Intéressant parallélisme entre les barques et le mur du fort
Horizon parfaitement cadré au 1/3
Angshu (56740) 2014-08-20 1:22
Very nice picture!
The walls of the bastion creates a nice backdrop to the boats struck to the mud at low tide. The sea is blue and contrasts with the warm tones well.
Very beautiful shot from Cadiz
SWEETFREEDOM (24124) 2014-08-24 4:36

Kielia (24077) 2014-09-22 8:11
each time I see boats and harbours, my heart jumps a little bit higher and this impression is a very pleasant one. The photographer’s perspective is excellent. The deep blue color of the water and the sky makes the image very attractive. My compliments also for the interesting notes!
SherryDrinker (460) 2014-10-08 11:42
Que te voy a decir que ya no sepas, solo falta que se vean mejor los cangrejos.
unclehotshot (3663) 2015-04-07 23:12
I recognized these walls before I read the location information. Cadiz. Wonderful place! I think you did a marvelous capture here. The wall and all the small boats resting on the sea floor during low tide. Exelent composition and colors. The cropping is just right.
Good solid photo work.
Cheers Angel; have a great day.
