Hello friends and colleagues , today I present a beautiful sunset taken a few days ago from the beach Cape silver , near the village of Zahara , in the picture you can see the boats in the trap, shed on this pretty encenada for fishing for Bluefin Tuna liked , appreciated gastronomic wonder in the world , I hope you enjoy this pretty , then some letters on this old fishing gear.
The trap ( of Andalusian Arabic المضربة trap, " where you hit or fight ") 1 is one of the techniques used to catch tuna in Andalusia , Valencia , Murcia and Ceuta advantage tuna migration Atlantic-Mediterranean (and back ) used since pre-Roman times . Is to install a maze of networks over the tuna , which is usually placed near the sea . In Sicily the method is called tonnara of tonno ( 'tuna' ) .
They have been pierced traps from the ports of Cadiz, Chiclana , Conil , Barbate , Rota, Zahara , La Linea de la Concepcion , New Umbria, Isla Cristina , Ceuta and Tarifa, among other ports. There is also this fishing technique in the Spanish southeast , in the Maritime region of Cartagena, more specifically in the Bay of Mazarrón, Águilas , in the village of La Azohía Cartagena , Cartagena . Also in different parts of the province of Alicante such as Denia, Javea, Benidorm, Villajoyosa or Tabarca .
The process begins when the tuna in their migration from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean Sea, passing through the Strait of Gibraltar. Almost all the Almadrabas puffs in the Mediterranean , from the eighteenth century to the mid-1950s , have been commanded by arraeces ( heads of all the tasks running on the trap ) Benidorm (Alicante ) , considered the natives of this town as true experts in the art of fishing for centuries.
The trap is an art to tuna fishing , the simplest of which is to place two boats at a distance from which a shallow network secured with a longline in which fish are collected , tuna and other stalls that they can Directions . Thanks to you until you board the ship are still alive in the event you can select and discard small or useless parts. Among the boats and on the network down the most experienced fishermen involved in selecting the tuna can weigh about 200 kilos . The piece chosen is bled and then his companions on the boat and harpoons pierce three or four men is brought on board , this is repeated with each piece . Once extracted (fish) tuna , the species is still less postage .
Excerpt from the story " Blog " of William R. Cartagena :
/ .. . / Before spotting the tip of Cape Tiñoso , we passed the trap of networks that have provided early fishermen trap . With his dark barges , they are closing the circle and decreasing distance from the surface to the network. Soon the surface outcrops of the bustling treasure of fish, which in many species , and teach his thick meat to air and bright sun . Fishermen, satisfied and stubborn recover tackles, while fellow , with sharp gaffs , collected hundreds of the Sea tuna ; any weighing much more than a man , has to be lifted by more than a fisherman.
The Siege of networks is soon stained a reddish foam and air barges dying , hundreds of creatures recently snatched from their world. They are packed in wooden boxes, bullet tuna , bonito, albacoretas ( albacore ) , roes , tuna ... decorated with large flakes of ice. Fishermen then turn the port of Azohía , where it will be auctioned off the treasure they seek bread that day.
For the buyer of this fresh fish is delightful to contemplate the landing . Some buy for boxes, parts and albacoretas frigate , then at home, prepare delicious salted in earthen jars , closing this annual ritual that has been repeated since the days of " garum " Roman , already more than two thousand years in the southeast. / ... /
In the twelfth century the Duke of Medina -Sidonia  receives the grace of the king to manage the traps South Atlantic and the Mediterranean. This wine exploiting the noble house in various places of the Andalusian geography mainly to the late eighteenth century , early nineteenth time becomes a business management.
After the disappearance of the traps that belonged to the Duke of Medina Sidonia , the management of these was in many hands , however it was such an expensive company should be managed by an entity that agglutinated and regulate . Thus a Almadrabero National Consortium that began to explode in Spain since 1928 , when it was founded , and whose first president was the island Serafin Romeu Portas , located first rate and then in Isla Cristina , was established . The January 18, 1973 , the National Consortium Almadrabero the decision to liquidate the company , which was the closing of the traps in the provinces of Huelva ( Isla Cristina ) and Almeria (Almería ) . Recently, thanks to the recovery of the species in the Gulf of Cadiz , it is speculated around the late 2010s to draft a trap in Isla Cristina . It is in this city where an appointment on a regular trap captains meetings internationally , involving captains Morocco , Portugal or even Japan are given .

Hola amigo Angel.
Maravilloso atardecer, con un cielo que tiene unos magníficos tonos en amarillos y anaranjados, la superficie del mar, brilla como de oro, buen complemento, el contraluz de esta roca en el primer plano de la imagen, la cual aumenta el DOF, de la misma.
Un buen colorido, totalmente natural.
Magnífica, tanto la luminosidad, como la nitidez.
Muy buen trabajo.
Ya sabes me encantan los atardeceres.
Pasa un buen dia.
Un fuerte abrazo.

Hello my dear friend
breathtaking sunset with a fantastic sun
the colorful sky with orange and gold colors
is vwery impressive and the sun like an
explosion dominates this photo
is there a boat in the background?
I think so it looks so small
the black foreground creates a dynamic
contrast with the fire into sky
have a pleasant evening

Hi Angel, my neighbour!
Awesome but a challenging shot at golden hour and what so good is the balance exposure is nicely controlled even the fireball is not blown up. Well placement of the silhouettes and there are also good glimpse of fishing boats on the horizon! Of course the golden sheen on the water and its ripples are most attractive apart from the sensational sky. Great effort

you have taken full advantage of the haze to shoot directly into the sun,the resulting golden glow and outlined fishing boats have combined to make a most attractive photograph.
A delight to view.

A beautiful golden orb contrasting with the shimmering silver of the sea. This is the natural world at its finest, all of the material things people aspire to have, and here they are for all to enjoy. The silhouettes of the boats on the horizon are very cool, I love how they all lined in the perfect place to break the horizon line.
Thanks as always

Magnifique ce soleil avec ces teintes chaudes et ces reflets sur la mer, bien composée ta photo avec la présence de ces rochers en premier plan.
Royaldevon (33387) 2014-05-23 1:57
I can imagine how you felt when the sky took on this wonderful amber mantle! What a sight for a photographer!
The silhouetted rocks anchor the f/g for the sense of depth, across the shimmering sea to ships and, ultimately, the setting sun.
Have a great day,
Cricri (111485) 2014-05-23 10:15
Splendide ce coucher du soleil au couleur oranger du ciel, les reflets et la brillance de l'eau, bien cadrer avec le rocher dans l'ombre donnant de la profondeur, très jolie réalisation
ikeharel (63019) 2014-05-23 10:28
Superb light management, Angel, and fine clarity.
The silhouette of the rocky slope diagonally 'falling" to sea, gave good scale to appreciate.
Saturated orange color and metallic "painted" sea. Intriguing shot.
Buen fin de semana,
siudzi (34141) 2014-05-23 12:29

Most beautiful sunset photo. The light and colors are fabulous, the sunlight reflections outstanding. Excellent arrangement with the undergoing sun in BG and the dark rock silhouette in FG.
Very well done my friend.

Wonderful sunset, maybe one advice waits to the sun the sea touches, shall the picture yet are more beautiful.
But I like your wonderful photograph work, you shows a very nice composition.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
ourania (36472) 2014-05-24 10:00
the minimalism of your composition is very effective and appealing, there's wonderful balance in your frame and captivating depth. The fireball in the middle of the frame is extremely attractive, it's amazing how you managed to retain the texture of the sea and its silvery shimmer so accurately. The dark rock is suggestive, the contrast between the warm, luminous sky and the sold, metallic sea is magnificent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
SWEETFREEDOM (23588) 2014-05-24 11:34

Lovely sunset shot - beautiful colours that make me feel the warmth from here! I have just returned from Barcelona where I felt such warmth everyday. now I am in the UK and it is grey and cold!
Have a good week!
Romano46 (18472) 2014-06-05 9:09
tra le tue ultime fotografie questa mi ha colpito in maniera particolare per come hai saputo catturare questo momento assai romantico.
La gestione della luce è perfetta perchè, nonostante che il sole in controluce colpisca direttamente l'obiettivo - risulta una perfetta leggibilità del paesaggio con ricchezza di dettagli e di colori.
Ottima nitidezza e gestione molto buona del contrasto.
Ciao e buona serata
Gigidusud (18065) 2014-06-11 13:58
