Hello friends and colleagues, today I present a view of the city street Aglet of Medina Sidonia, a city of history, in the province of Cádiz, Andalusia, hope you like it, then a few letters of the city.
The city of Medina Sidonia is a Spanish municipality located in the center of the province of Cádiz , Andalusia. It belongs to the district of La Janda . It is historical-artistic and Well of Cultural Interest The mountain on which it is located is called the Cerro del Castillo, which is the highest elevation of the entire western third of the province, from the foothills of the Sierra de Cádiz to Atlantic coastline , which allows it to be spotted from a significant portion of the province, offering at the same time , the extraordinary panorama of the provincial area . The city is oriented towards the Bay of Cadiz , which is why it is known as the Balcony of the Bay. A small part of the municipality asidonense belongs to the Natural Park of the Acorns, one of the most valuable in terms of natural and scenic areas refers Andalusia. The term also hosts much of the route of the Green Corridor of the two bays , a greenway linking the Bay of Cadiz and Algeciras Bay . The first settlements in the area of which we have evidence , dating from the Late Bronze Age . Found in the Cerro de las Madres a lot of fragments of handmade ceramics and some stone tools . It seems that these people were related to the Tartessian culture. Then takes place the arrival of Phoenician colonists from Sidon , which will found a city (with the same name as their city of origin ) on the basis of the earlier Indian occupation . In the third century . C. Romans occupy the whole mainland that was previously in the hands of the Carthaginians. Around the first century a new urban center will occupy the entire space of what is now the Historic be built. By Augusto César Award , the city promotes its previous municipal status and becomes a colony with Roman law ( civitas optimo jure) . She was known by the name of Asido , Caesarina or completely as Asido Caesarina Augusta. Was located in the Province Ulterior Baetica , belonging to the convent legal Hispalensis ( with capital Hispalis ) . In the Visigoth Hispania was the provincial capital and episcopal see of the Catholic Church , then known as Asidona , suffragan of the Archdiocese of Seville which included the former Roman province of Andalusia in the diocese of Hispania . In 712 the city was conquered by Musa ibn Nusair , the Umayyad Caliphate usually at the beginning of the Muslim conquest of the Iberian peninsula. It was the capital of Muslim named Cora Cora Sidonia ( also known as Arabic Saduna شذونة ) . Alfonso X the Wise reconquered the city September 22, 1264 , occupying the border against the Moorish Kingdom of Granada , which is why it appears in a medieval document with the name " Frontier " . In times of the Reconquista was home to several military orders. These include the Order of Santiago and the Order of Santa Maria. In 1440 became part of the Lordship of the Dukes of Medina Sidonia .

It must be siesta time as there is no-one in sight on this attractive street with its whitewashed houses. I like the upwards point of view and the patterns and detailing to be observed in the cobbles.

Quand on parle de villages blancs on ne se trompe pas avec celui-ci.Suivre la rue dans l'image donne beaucoup de profondeur à la composition. L'ensemble jouit d'une belle lumière qui fait bien ressortir les détails.

The is really on the sunny side of the street! A very attractively composed picture with this perspective and the street making a good diagonal line. A very peaceful and pleasant scene.

You had all the streets just for yourself! I like such clear photos with perfect composition, beautiful narrow street leading uphill, splendid shot

Beautiful view on this street, and how on earth did you capture it with no people! However you did it, the result is brilliant like a scene from a movie. The composition of the upwards rising road is just perfect to invite the in deeper and deeper on this wonderful street. Really nicely done.
All the best

Intéressant effet de profondeur avec la perspective de cette rue, les contrastes de lumière sont bien gérés et la blancheur des murs bien rendue.
ourania (32169) 2014-05-20 11:52
it seems that you can defy any lighting challenges and that you always find a way to draw the greatest impact from the perspectives of the narrow, picturesque streets you are presenting. I like very much how we are immediately drawn into this street and feel like we are proceeding uphill. There's a lot of detail to take in and you captured a fascinating interaction between white and darker tones, light and shadow. The ambiance is as calm as expected on a hot day like this and we have this graphical representation all to ourselves to enjoy. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Une magnifique composition avec la rue montante.
Bel effet de la rue étroite et de son architecture.
adramad (38613) 2014-05-20 12:57
Esplendida vista de esta preciosa calle, las fachadas quedan ideales con esa serie de grandes ventanales, muy bien gestionada las sombras y luces de la imagen.
Muy bonito colorido en unos tonos muy eficaces.
Buena gestion de la luminosidad y una buena nitidez.
Esplendida imagen. Mis felicitaciones.
Que tengas un buen dia.

You have discovered a nice place for taking this image. This white street looks great and was presented with superb sense of perspective. Well done! TFS!
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-05-21 0:32
very quiet place it seems to be or you managed to capture it in such a moment. The buildings on both sides of the street are simple and elegant and I like the refreshing white and blue combination of the colors. Good choice of POV and nice angle you took this picture at.
Thanks for sharing and all the best

Belle image de cette rue en légère montée, la beauté des façades blanches, que la lumière embelli et qui par cette forte chaleur rend la rue désertique

Ciao Angel, bella prospettiva sulla strada assolata, gran parata di candide facciate, ottima nitidezza e splendida luce, bravo, ciao Silvio
mirosu (14564) 2014-05-21 19:58
Excellent view along the narrow deserted town road. The perspective is perfect, and the arrangement with nice white houses along the street is superb, the light and light contrast outstanding.
Very well done.
ikeharel (58275) 2014-05-22 8:55
Yet another POV on the white Medina Sidonia, Angel.
Fine outlines, good clarity and a returning pattern on those facades.
Just missing some trees and / or flowers, to "break" this patten view. Well collected sight.

empty street but here's pleasant peaceful mood. Interesting architecture, perspective and game of shadows with light. Good presentation. Well done photo.
Have a nice evening.

Profondeur, courbes et perspectives c'est la meilleure façon pour composer une image comme ici
Hélas la plupart des nouveaux arrivants sur ce site ont tendance à ne pas appliquer cette procédure importante
