The Jeddah Corniche is the coast along the Red Sea.
It has 3 parts of man made terraces, and stretches more than 20 miles.
It has private beaches, restaurants, playgrounds, amusement parks and picnic sites all the way along it.
There are sculptures located on parts of it as well.
After the Mahgreb (sunset) prayer, the Corniche springs into life,Picnicking is a favorite local hobby, and is regarded as an ideal opportunity to get together for a family chat and a substantial supper.

This is a most unusual sunset! It is rare to see such cool colours in a posted sunset, and I do like this one

A tired sun goes finally to sleep. He saw so many things today...from New Zealand and Japan to Chile and Alaska...different people, different communities, different landscapes...some of them were nice, some of them were ugly, some were just scary...but the moment the golden sun likes best is to bath and melt with the silver sea in a cosmic breathtaking moment you just took for those far from it.

Its a beautiful sunset and i like the composition of this shot, with the stones in the foreground.
I also regret that i had been in Jeddah airport without seeing the Red sea!...

This is a simple but very beautiful sunset.
I specially like the degradée of soft tones on the sky.
Perfect exposure too.

Interesting atmospheric capture !
the colour looks very natural and very pleasing to the eye.
The near silhouette rocks in the foreground look fantastic.
Best regards, Daniel

Hello Mujtaba -
A very nice sunset over the Red Sea. I resided in Jeddah for four months in 1983 and have travel the Corniche at and after sunset many times and what you say about it as a gathering place is very true. My only comment about this image is that the FG is a bit dark. A little detail IMO would help the image. Well done.
Thank you for sharing.
