Hello friends and colleagues, this is a photo taken on the beach at Castilnovo of Conil, was one of our last trips this summer, the girl looked at the landscape and I noticed her figure reflected in the wet sand , quickly shot with my Sony automatic, this is the beautiful result of the great occasion that presented itself. Then I give a little information about the beach and the city. I hope you enjoy it and will be useful in the future.
The beach is a beach Castilnovo virgin, wild looking where waves and wind have great strength to practice windsurfing.
Its area is 2600 meters by 180 meters wide. The average occupancy level is low. Isolated protected beach without waterfront, mainly composed of golden sand. The normal state of the sea is moderate swell.
Border with El Palmar in Vejer, this wild beach surrounding coastal defense tower of the same name, which for centuries has been a silent witness to the evolution of waves and history.
This country-style beach lies south of the town of Conil, in an area of difficult access, rural atmosphere of cows and sunflowers.
Castilnovo is a paradise for lovers of solitude and pristine beaches, with over 2 ½ miles, enough space to plant the umbrella lost and hundreds of meters following the deadly. Good conditions for surfing and fishing.
Conil de la Frontera (until 1981 simply Conil) is a Spanish municipality in the province of Cadiz, Andalusia. It is one of the most picturesque villages of the Costa de la Luz, with places of great ecological and historical. Its economy is based on fishing and tourism facility. That's why in summer its population reached 90,000 people.
Its geographical coordinates are 36 ° 16 'N, 6 ° 05' W. It is located at an altitude of 41 meters and 43 kilometers from the provincial capital, Cadiz.
Conil is situated on a coastal plain southwest of the province of Cadiz, bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. Far from the capital about 43 kilometers. At its easternmost state dominates the plain, and its westernmost cliffs among which that of Roche. It is part of the region of La Janda.
Although human presence is found in prehistoric times, the town of Conil was founded in the time of the Phoenicians, who took advantage of going to sea in the area, creating their traps and fishing there. Already in Roman times acquired splendor and grandeur to be part of the Milky Herculean and unite the cities of Malaga and Cadiz. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Conil was sacked by the Visigoths, the Byzantines and Vandals until the arrival of the Muslims in 711, had to join the Cora of Sidonia.
No major news again have the municipality until 1265, year in which the municipality, due to the Reconquista Christian victories, rename the town, adding the place name of "border", as it did with other populations as Chiclana , Jerez or Arcos, because populations were part of the border between the Muslim lands of the Christians. In 1299, King Ferdinand IV granted Alonso Perez de Guzman was then the village Conil to repopulate and strengthened, contributing to their revival. It was at this time when the village was renamed Torre de Guzman, due to the tower, to defend the city in case of attack, built under his name.
Although epidemics of plague and other diseases that people suffered in later years, traps residents served as the basis of its economy. In the early sixteenth century village life is disrupted by disputes that occur between two noble families tremendously important area: that of Guzman and Ponce de Leon. Alongside this, the disputes between the nobles and villagers worsen the situation in the area, as they seemed to these second bad economic conditions to which they were forced to live. After all these problems, the following decades were paying off as the population and the production of the traps began to rise.
Seventeenth century was the golden age of the population, and which became economic enclave around. Already in the eighteenth century, the traps begin to decline, but by no means the economy begins to hold thanks to agriculture and livestock. In the middle of this century, a series of disputes due to the tax burden to which landowners and villagers again disturb the peace of Conil. These problems both territories and money are what makes people fall in the popularity of chopped, to which was added the Napoleonic occupation of the early nineteenth century. The people, who by then had a feeling those antisatately, Trustee Personero created a kind of ombudsman municipalities through which the area could meet the lords landowners. During the twentieth century, tourism, to a much lesser extent than at present, begins to take its toll on the town, because families sevillanas summer begin to march through the area to be medicinal water baths. Since the 60s, Conil tourism has boomed because of which this is the sector which has supported the village in recent years.

Mis felicitaciones por estas 400 imagenes, que nos han hecho disfrutar con tu buen hacer, y desear que sigamos compartiendo muchos cientos mas.
Es una composicion fantastica y super original, girada y quitando la espuma, podriamos estar contemplando un cuadro impresionista, "Chica con sombrilla, en la playa".
Un delicioso trabajo amigo mio, bien presentado con este bonito marco que realza el buen trabajo.
Pasa una feliz tarde y resto de semana.

very nice shot, i like very much this reflections
kasianowak (5326) 2013-01-10 12:40
Great photo opportunity very well used! I like the composition, the sea wave in the corner gives the image context.
ourania (27598) 2013-01-12 9:50
a very lovely and elegant image. You've made excellent use of the vertical frame, the portrait of the girl on the sand looks like a painting and the composition is completed in a very fine way by the umbrella and the diagonal of the wave approaching but not touching the reflection. You've managed light and colours superbly. I like very much how brown and blue mingle on the wet sand. Congratulations and thank you! Also congratulations on the 400 posts of your wonderful gallery, your lovely work with great photos and rich notes!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
andywo (4723) 2013-02-24 8:29
