Typical summer month of August but here is another cloudy day in beautiful Asturias.
Tapia de Casariego (Eonavian: Tapia) is a municipality in the Autonomous Community of the Principality of Asturias, Spain. It is bordered on the north by the Cantabrian Sea, on the east by El Franco, on the south and west by Castropol.
Tapia is also the name of one of the parishes inside the municipality. Its capital is Tapia. The capital is 127km from Oviedo, from Gijón 122 km, 97 km from Lugo. These cities can reach the council via road N-634, the freeway A-8 (E70), and Ranon the airport around 86 km from the town, another railroad access is by the railway line FEVE Ferrol - Gijón with stops in La Roda.
The council itself Tapia was born in the middle of the nineteenth century 1863, through the segregation of several parishes within membership before councils of Castropol and El Franco . The main driving force behind the creation of the new council was Fernando Fernández de Casariego, Marquis de Casariego. In recognition and appreciation, the Tapia council completed its name as 'Tapia de Casariego'.
In the 10th century the king Ramiro II, donate to the Bishop of Oviedo the territory between the Eo river and Navia and that is including the current council Tapia de Casariego. This grant is ratified by King Alfonso VII in 12th century, which confirms that the territory Oviedo is the Obispalia in strong conflict with that of Lugo Salave retaining possessions and Villamil.

This picture shows some other parts and aspects of this very pleasant town. This seems to be a tidal basin to keep all the boats safe when the water goes ot. A very interesting picture to which you have also added a lush green hedge, a little red life belt and a view of the town itself. Everything looks very nice and enjoyable.

This time is from high posittion via widefocus appraoch, so I can see this town breiefly. Not only colorful boats but also houses on the hill are all tasetful and tiny but so attractive place, isn't it? Very well framework shot too. Only regrettable point is a weather, but this is no choice.
Thanks a lot and have a beautiful Sunday!

Ελένη γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφη η πανοραμική θέα της Tapia de Casariego με το καλά προφυλαγένο λιμάνι εμπρός και τα σπίτια επάνω στον λόφο να συμπηρώνουν το όλο σκηνικό.
Απ΄ ότι βλέπω στον λόφο υπάρχουν συγκροτήματα μοντέρνων κατοικιών.

l'angolo verde da colore a tutta l'immagine e le piccole barche colorate punteggiano il mare di questo incantevole porticciolo.
Una bella composizione.

Καλημέρα Ελένη! Άλλη μια εξαιρετική ταξιδιωτική ματιά, μια άλλη ενδιαφέρουσα οντότητα από φωτογραφία και σχόλιο! Τα χρώματα, το τοπίο και η απόλυτη ηρεμία εδώ είναι συναρπαστικό - μια θέση απλώς να αισθάνονται καλά.
Αυτή τη φορά θέλω επίσης να εκτιμήσουν το επιλεγμένο πλάνομε το μπροστά σκηνικό να συμπληρώνει, επίσης το πλαίσιο, το οποίο πηγαίνει πολύ καλά με το μέρος που παρουσιάζεται.Χαιρετώ

Hi eleni !!
Nice Panoramic view of another quaint little fishing harbour, so much character.
Your presentation is super, incorporating colours and many other elements of interest.
Eating the fish on this town would have been a treat ( monk fish .... is the best in Spain )
I think that you are a very multicultural person.Well done to all the adjustments that you had to make.

An artificial marina built on the rocky sea-shore, well collected from a hillside POV, Eleni.
Picture space also well divided by subjects seen, nice view of town houses envelope the far side.
There is a small tilt of sea-horizon - which must be leveled horizontally any time.
jhm (122490) 2013-01-06 2:05
We get a lovely view about the marina and the village in background.
This creates depth and perspective.
Lovely panorama view about this area.
Excellent captured and good composed. TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
brianmcc (5536) 2013-01-06 2:38
you have captured a lovely view over this harbour and the surrounding buildings. the foreground leads nicely towards the water and the boats. the scene is framed well with the lovely houses overlooking the harbour.
have a lovely weekend,

This is scenic despite the sky in fact grey goes well with green. A good viewpoint and an effective framing overlooking the bay dotted by some colorful boats with good fg interest. A clean shot, good luminosity, colors and obvisouly the eye is also drawn into bg interest. This looks so peacful, must be a great place for vacation. You have done a tremendous job here and worth the effort. Tx for sharing. Congrats

J'aime la présentation de la ville avec les petits bateaux, le rocher et la verdure en avant plan , de belles couleurs malgré la faible lumière, belle image
Robert1969 (6238) 2013-01-09 2:14
This is perhaps one of your best pictures.
This picture has a lots of details, but
isn't busy: that means that the composition
is great. I like also the point of view:
the picture has a lots of diaginal line
and that creates a lots of depth and it
makes also the picture exciting. One little
point: watch out for the horizon that is

My first impression is the configuration of the ground and water what has allowed a good defensive dam construction for rescuing all the small boats. It is the first time I could see it and better than me you know its interior. I mean whether the village is turned out to the tourism or not. I guess this is the edge of the village where the fishing activity occurs. (Concerned to the photo in Comporta I may say to you that the beach is a good one. There is a hotel where I have never stayed but next time I will look for it. There is no night activity unless normal strools people do in hot days. The birds are storks and not pelicans. Comporta is surrounded by rice fields. The local beach is very flat what means it is not a dangerous one with rough sea. The line of beach have no end nor I know the exact distance. Perhaps 30 or 40Km. The sand starts in Tróia as far as Espichel cable). (Tomorrow I iniciate an intensive course of english lasting 50 hours. There is a school near my home. I will be at school since 19 to 23 o`clock in the evening). I will come to the computer only on Friday. Warm regards. Tomi

Ciao amica mia,
sono sincero la foto di oggi non mi piace molto per l'eccessivo rilievo dato alla bicicletta pur riconoscendo la tua buona tecnica di ripresa ed una perfetta gestione della luce.
Preferisco commentare questa tua foto scattata nelle Asturie che si avvale di una bella conposizione e di colori saturi. Un insieme di elementi che fanno di questa foto una bella rappresentazione di questo luogo quasi sconosciuto a noi europei.
Ti aspetto domani con un'altra bella foto.
Ciao e buona serata
