Hello friends and colleagues over the summer and is the seafront of the charming village of Conil de la Frontera, with beautiful palms orphan tourists and vacationers, strolling and browsing the stalls in summer fashion riding on the sidewalk. I hope you enjoy this peaceful scene. Then a few letters on this villa.
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.

I like the light as the colour management of the image.

The line of palm trees leads the eye with deepness. This is a nice sidewalk with benches to realx. The light is very good and gives natural colors. A very good and warming presentation.

Bellamente fotografiada en fila paseo brillante delgado de palmeras. Pero seguro que está caliente y es hora de la siesta, probablemente porque es tan vacía y no hay gente.
Excelente calidad de imagen y color.

An image with amazing depth accentuating by the never ending line of palm trees. I love the puffy round cloud in the otherwise clear blue sky. An imaginative composition very well realised.

J'aime beaucoup la construction de l'image. L'alignement de palmiers donne beaucoup de profondeur à l'image qui jouit d'une lumière exceptionnelle.

I like the deep perpective of this long seafront, taking the viewer for a stroll along the sandy beach on a perfect sunny day. The row of palm trees lining the promenade makes a lovely frame for this fine coastal image. Such a pure blue sky is still a dream for those of us living in northern Europe, so looking at this picture can be a good light therapy ! Thanks for this bright sunny gift.
Have a nice weekend.

Palm trees in juxtaposition along the sea-shore promenade, well collected from POV.

Vaya perspectiva tan fabulosa la de esta imagen, con el paseo y la linea de palmeras, que se pierde en la distancia, que buen sitio para hacer buenas caminatas y ademas por liso... como a mi me gusta.
Fabuloso este cielo tan azul, que junto a la optima luminosidad y nitidez, hace la imagen tan atrayente.
Un bonito trabajo amigo mio.
Disfruta de esta tarde de lunes.
Un fuerte abrazo.

It's about long perspective and huge depth rendered by excellent viewpoint, a pleasant enough image where rows of trees hold the focus firmly there. The rich colours and contrast of the scene are indeed stunning and good detail throughout as I feel the important elements are brought together well here with enough sky proportion. A pleasant water front indeed, Well done shot, Congrats
