Hello friends today I propose this composition formed with two lamps of the boardwalk to the beach of La Barrosa, Chiclana de la Frontera, with the bottom of beautiful forest and the historic watchtower Torre Bermeja over the cliff. Hope you like.
Chiclana de la Frontera is a Spanish village in the province of Cadiz, in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia. It belongs to the Association of Municipalities of the Bay of Cadiz, near Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera, San Fernando, El Puerto de Santa Maria, Puerto Real and Rota. Also part of the metropolitan area of the Bay of Cadiz, Jerez, polynuclear urban agglomeration which is part next to Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera, San Fernando, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Puerto Real, the third metropolitan area Andalusia, behind Sevilla and Malaga, and the twelfth of Spain. At 20 kilometers from the capital of the province, Cadiz, north the city is bordered by the municipalities of San Fernando and Puerto Real, on the south coast to Conil de la Frontera and land borders Medina Sidonia and a small part of Vejer de la Frontera.
The human presence dates back to Paleolithic Chiclana. During antiquity, the Phoenicians settled near the town, particularly in the small island of Sancti Petri, founding the Temple of Hercules Gaditano. Just as in the field, found in 2006 in Castle Hill, in the heart of the city, behind the church of San Juan Bautista. The foundation of the current Chiclana occurred in 1303 when King Ferdinand IV of Castile chiclaneras gave land to the House of Medina Sidonia. During the eighteenth century stands the town of the locality. During the War of Spanish Independence came the Battle of Chiclana between French and Anglo-Spanish allies. Today Chiclana economy depends on a modern industry and tourism, especially from the beaches and golf courses settled mainly in the Novo Sancti Petri, urbanization has the largest number of hotel beds in the province of Cadiz and the Costa de la Luz.
The origin dates back to Paleolithic Chiclana, as shown by historians such as excavations or Sunday Bohorquez. Off the coast of Chiclana lies the island of Sancti Petri, where it is likely that the Phoenicians built the Temple of Hercules Gaditano, on whose ruins were subsequently raised Castle Sancti Petri. The island was visited in 1930 by Manuel de Falla, seeking inspiration in it for the music of his scenic cantata Atlantida and classic authors such as Strabo indicate the existence in the area of the famous Temple of Hercules Gaditano without being able to accurately determine its location.
Excavations have revealed a Phoenician settlement in the city center. Archaeological finds from Cerro del Castillo, Chiclana show that already had settlements in the Phoenician era, providing new data on the Phoenician colonization in the Bay of Cadiz and demonstrating that the current town of Chiclana and was a major Phoenician city thanks its fortifications built in the first moment of the Phoenician colonization, assuming a significant advance for understanding the territorial organization of that historic moment and a source of data for the current archaeological and historical research. Therefore, the archaeological find of the Castle is of great importance amongst those on the Phoenician Andalusia and Spain. Have been found many fragments of pottery, hand made and richly decorated, and various structures and pavements murarias confirming the existence of a fortified town of Phoenician origin, showing occupancy levels ranging from the Late Bronze Age to the Medieval era including signs of a strong Roman and Phoenician presence. The study confirmed that the Cerro del Castillo and therefore, the town of Chiclana, was occupied from the Late Bronze Age, in the eighth century BC Therefore, after the recent archaeological discoveries found in the center of the city in 2006, we can say that Chiclana is part of the network of cities trimilenarias, along with Cadiz, Seville and Malaga founded by the Phoenicians.
Blow Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans found in Chiclana are in the Archaeological Museum of Cádiz
From a geographically and culturally, the city belongs to the Lower Andalusia. Situated on the Costa de la Luz and the call Wine Route. Bathed by the Atlantic waters.

such funny street lamps:)) Never seen anything of this kind. A very original design I'd say. And the deep blue color definitely becomes them:) Great point of view.

Ces singuliers lampadaires des temps modernes ont des allures de gibets de potence. En encadrant la tour d'observation située en arrière-plan, ils mettent celle-ci particulièrement en valeur. J'aime beaucoup le liseré bleu du cadre en résonnance avec celui des lampadaires. Une photo simple, mais originale.

nice hte view as the presentation of the two modern lampposts as are found in the boardwalk to the beach.
The backdrop of the scene completes perfect the whole image.

i lampioni blu si stagliano nitidi su un cielo mediterraneo ma anche le rocce, la torre e il verde dello sfondo attraggono il nostro interesse.
Complete le note storiche per un ottimo lavoro.

Quite original lamposts standing well against a perfect sky and a nice landscape. The tight framing is effective and I like the white building in the middle. Excellent color and sharpness.

questa sorta di fratelli gemelli contrastano con il paesaggio sottostante, la linea ed i colori moderni che fanno parte di un panorama antico e tradizionale.
Ottimo lavoro e bel colpo d'occhio.

en primer lugar, te felicito por tu segundo aniversario aquí, compartiendo tus fotos y tu amistad con todos nosotros.
Y después, quiero valorar esta composición como se merece, por su intenso cromatismo gracias a los tonos azules de las farolas que se destacan sobre el paisaje de la playa y el cielo.
El grafismo de estas farolas es enorme, y el efecto de la perspectiva de tu ángulo visual funciona muy bien, dando mucha potencia a la imagen.
Me gustan la luz y la nitidez de la imagen.
Es un bonito trabajo, amigo mío.

You had an excelent idea, Angel.
The two modern lamp-posts stood like an imaginary "Scarecrows" with lantern in hands to light-up the way on the beach promenade.
A lovely shot, buenas tardes,

Innovative and artistically designed lamp posts, to me its an art work instead of the normal object and a real eyecatcher indeed. What a wonderful colours for they blend well in the environment. So pleasing yo th eyes shot with lots of detail, shapes and patterns as well. Good crop, unclutters, clarity and tones but the contrast is striking. TFS, Congrats

I like these two very interesting light posts. with strong shapes and detisl the blue is beutiful and two is better than one, with the back being smaller to give perspective.

Ciao caro Angel,
veramente curiosi ed originali questi due lampioni che sembrano due sculture di arte moderna. Mi piace molto la scelta del tuo POV, con l'antica torre tra i due lampioni. Eccellente, come sempre, la qualità fotografica. Ottimo shot, bravissimo!
Ciao, buona settimana!
