Hello friends and colleagues, today I present a view of the bottom of the street of Varos, the city of Medina Sidonia, a city of history, in the province of Cádiz, Andalusia, I hope you like it, then a few letters over 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's Historical-Artistic and Joint Cultural Interest The mountain on which 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 part of the province, offering at the same time, the extraordinary panorama of provincial area. The city is oriented towards the Bay of Cadiz, which is why it is known as the Balcony Bay. A small part of asidonense municipality 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 for which we have evidence, dating from the Late Bronze Age. Found in the Cerro de las Madres a lot of pieces of handmade ceramics and some stone tools. It appears that these people were tartésica regarding culture. 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 takes place subsequently. In the third century. C. Romans occupy the whole mainland was previously held by 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). It was known by the name of Asido, Caesarina or completely as Asido Caesarina Augusta. It was located in the Province Ulterior Baetica, belonging to the legal department Hispalensis (with capital Hispalis). In Visigothic Spain was a provincial capital and episcopal see of the Catholic Church, then known as Asidona, suffragan of the Archdiocese of Seville which included the ancient Roman province of Baetica in the diocese of Hispania. In 712 the city was conquered by Musa ibn Nusair, commander of the Umayyad Caliphate, at the beginning of the Muslim conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. It was the capital of Muslim Cora Cora called Sidonie (also known as شذونة Saduna in Arabic). 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 "de la Frontera". In times of 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.

Interesante estas casas todas blancas con sus rejas y muy bien conservadas tomadas desde una buena perspectiva y con el callejon dando profundidad
Este buen manejo de los colores te permite lograr un efectivo contraste con el azul del cielo
Buen trabajo, saludos

You're quite good with these long reaching perspectives, and this is surely another one! The street appears to be never ending, and with such simple beauty, why would anyone want it to end? With the sharp focus, you've detailed the textures with great clarity and appeal...and even some peel. :) Blue skies, warm days and quiet streets...where do I sign up? Lovely! Enjoy the new day. All the best.
Friendly wishes from the desert Southwest,

with deep regards and enjoy the nice weekend.

You know my love to the places like this one:) the white houses street looks always so beautiful, elegant and unique in my opinion. This one is a perfect sample of it! Perfectly capture taken with a great sense of depth!

Hola Angel, looking at this picture I imagine how hat day it must have been and all people prefer relaxing somewhere in the shadow instead of walking. Beautiful street with the houses with iron balconies and window protection. This idea was transferred to colonial architecture, I saw similar houses in Peru.
Superb depth, colours and sharpness.
Have a beautiful day.

bella prospettiva su questo taglio verticale.
Molto bello il contrasto tra il bianco delle facciate il cielo blu.
snunney (79973) 2014-08-15 4:10
I like the long perspective along these most interesting façades in which there are lots of decorative detail to be observed. Good colour contrasts and clarity.
Sergiom (55735) 2014-08-15 5:32
J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical d'une grande pureté dans les détails . Tout un côté de la rue est parfaitement illuminé par cette belle lumière andalouse. L'ensemble est d'une grande profondeur.
alvaraalto (5989) 2014-08-15 8:28
Well-chosen POV with only one side of the street on the scene.
The shadow on the street contrast beautiful with de white facades. The repetition in the facades is another good point.
ourania (27542) 2014-08-15 8:51
a very nice and effective way to present the characteristic architecture of this picturesque town, choosing the sunlit side of the narrow street and exalting the graphism of its repeating patterns. The composition seems to consist of three triangular parts, well arranged in the vertical frame. The doorway in the foreground is an attractive and interesting element. The lighting contrast was extremely strong but you managed it in such a way that clarity is great and the colours have retained their richness and intensity. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely afternoon,

Fine white buildings leading nicely off into the distance, and that great blue sky. Once again you have used your ability to find places with no people really well. I always love these scenes when there is no people in them.
Have a great weekend.
Royaldevon (27035) 2014-08-15 14:12
A fine viewpoint draws the viewers to a strong vanishing point within the frame. The details are sharp with good contrasts of light and shadows.
Have you been having such lovely weather recently?
In England, we have suffered cooler temperatures than normal with lots of blustery rain!
my warm regards,
rychem (20313) 2014-08-15 20:51
Beautiful narrow street shown in the long perspective, great management of light, the bright light causes that we can see all the details, very nice diagonal composition
williewhistler (12837) 2014-08-16 13:04
good use of the wide angle lens and upright format has given the scene a really nice perspective with the interesting features of the street very well illustrated.
Warm regards Les.

I really like the tranquil atmosphere you captured here in this almost empty street. The sharpness is great and allows us to enjoy the details on the façades of the houses.

nice street perspective. Good shot and composition. Interesting architecture. Well done photo and informations in note.
Have a nice week.
mursaloglu (8353) 2014-08-18 3:55
I like the great POV and perspective of this picture with stunning setting of the houses bravo.
eldancer1 (25798) 2014-08-18 7:20
Nice capture of those building. It's unfortunate that people have to use iron bars, which are ugly, to protect their homes. Good lighting control and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
Cricri (102185) 2014-08-20 4:38
Excellente perspective de ces façades blanches baignant sous une très belle lumière, bon cadrage et présentation
macjake (53278) 2014-08-20 10:36
the only thing missing to make this photo even more sweet is a lady in a red dress :)
lots of contrasts make this work so well, the blue and white contrast, and the black and white contrast.
fine textures too, especially on the left edge.
enjoy your day

buena y profunda perspectiva de las calle en este encuadre, donde la arquitectura blanca de las casas tradicionales, con sus rejas, balcones y farolas negras, abraza una calle de adoquines realmente agradable para ver y pasear.
La luz de la mañana te regaló un precioso juego de luz y sombras, que combinado con el intenso azul del cielo, completan una composición elegante y que invita a visitar estas bellas ciudades.
Bonito trabajo, amigo mío.
PaulVDV (20859) 2014-08-30 3:24
Beautiful typical Andalusian architecture with the wrought iron bars on the windows and on the balconies.
A pretty sight of the whitewashed facades under the blue sky.
The empty space in the right lower corner is well filled with the shadow of the houses.
Best regards, Paul
