Hello friends and colleagues, today I intend to enjoy this sunset with cloud bands from the Bateles beach in the town of Conil de la Frontera, then some letters on the beach and the town, I hope you enjoy.
The beach of Los Bateles in Conil de la Frontera, Cadiz, is a beach on the Costa de la Luz which has an area of 850 meters long by 130 meters wide. Soil composition is of fine golden sand, the surf is moderate.
The beach promenade and has a wide range of services. Its location near the town center make this beach one of the busiest Conil amplitude but the same can settle it without suffering excessive crowds.
The area of the mouth of the Salt River is highly recommended for sports such as windsurfing. The beach has life saving equipment services and parking area. In addition there are bars and a variety of facilities nearby.
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.

primero debo agradacerte el detalle de dedicarme esta fantástica foto, es un placer y un honor para mi, de verdad.
Gran momento captado aquí, la mística y la belleza de la puesta de sol se nos abren aquí en una imagen muy potente y con unos tonos magníficos, que has captado con maestría y con muy buen gusto, en una sencilla pero impresionante composición.
Muchas gracias, amigo mío.
Un fuerte abrazo desde BCN,
PD: no pudo ser, veremos si en el partido de vuelta se puede remontar ese pobre resultado.

Una soberbia composicion con esta bellisima puesta de sol, que en si misma es una imagen sencilla, una linea del horizonte y el cielo, pero que cielo.... soberbio cromatismo con esa gama de colores e ideales de formacion, con las nubes en forma de franjas de diferentes colores.
Soberbia la gran nitidez y perfecta iluminacion.
Magnifico trabajo con una gran maestria.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana y si este frio con que nos amenazan, no os llega hasta alli, pues mucho mejor.
