Hi dear TE friends
Place : Sesimbra
Theme: Sesimbra beach/some of my vacation
Sesimbra is a municipality of Portugal, in the Setúbal district, lying at the foothills of the Serra da Arrábida, a mountain range between Setúbal and Sesimbra.
Due to its particular position at the Bay of Setúbal, near the mouth of the Sado river and its natural harbour, it’s an important fishing town, with a total area of 195.0 km² and a total population of 37,567 inhabitants.
To see: map view
Land of fishermen and all the activities related to it.
A beautiful town located on the base of some mounts with some of the beautiful little beachs of Portugal.
Near the bay we can find numerous restaurants and hotels and just behind them the typical houses of the fishermen. It's nice to be at the beach and look up to see as the town grows over the hills with the restaurants and hotel lines, the typical houses and on top of it guarding the town its castle, right on top of the mount. A really nice town, worth to be visited and enjoy its atmosphere.
In the heart of the picturesque fisherman's town of Sesimbra and only one step away from a sandy beach of sapphire-blue waters, this is an oasis of rest and relaxation. Nestled between the lush green of the Arrábida Natural Park and the ocean. Sesimbra also includes outdoor swimming pools, a kids club, a beach club and several meeting rooms. There is also a shopping gallery .
I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends

Gosto muito nessa foto das cores, da luminosidade, do ponto de vista escolhido, do format horizontal e da moldura em preto & branco! A composição é simples, mas eficiente e bem atraente, com o pormenor negativo da presença daquele pedaço de guindaste em cima à esquerda, uma pena!
Um abraço e até logo!

It looks like a very popular beach, specially towards the end of the bay.
Very beautiful summer colours. Well composed picture.
In the center of the town there are many white buildings with reds roofs but the newer buildings further away aren't built in the traditional style anymore. I understand from your note that Sesimbra is expanding very fast.
Best regards, Paul

Olà Filipe ,
I suppose that there will get more and more concrete building in this ancient fishermen village . An superb view , however , with the attractive effect of the blue color of the sea .

Nice to see you! fantastic view of Sesimbra Beach. What a blue sea! great perspectine and nice these blue objects. Fantastic place for enjoying sun. I suppose the water must be cold as not so many people are swimming.
Have a nice weekend

Sesimbra alterou bem desde a minha viagem de casamentos em 1972. Gosto efectivamente do primeiro plano gráfico. Gosto da composição nítida e profunda. Gosto da paisagem magnífica. Excelente realização.
Bom fim de dia

davvero incredibile la bellezza di quel mare blu intenso e la naturalezza dei colori. Un paesaggio tipicamente estivo con tutte le caratteristiche della stagione.
Eccellente la qualità e la profondità dello scatto, un meraviglioso spot all'estate.
Un caro abbraccio

a very nice and crowded beach with the jetty and the shore line to create depth and perspective in the image.It must be a great experience to be someone there to see and to swim in this superb sea.
Have a nice afternoon,Danos

dip (23502) 2010-08-09 11:44
impressive view of the beach,very good POV,
the vivid blue tones of the sea make the picture to seems like a painting,
Kielia (22913) 2010-08-09 22:57
this is really a fantastic impression with an incredibly beautiful light. The colors – especially the blue of the ocean – are also fascinating. It is interesting to see how an ancient fishing village becomes a tourist magnet.

Hi Filipe,the choice of point of view was decisive for the beauty of your pic,there is a great order in this beach so nice,great sharpness and beautifull view,i like a lot the dark blue of the sea too.Thanks for share,have a nice day,LUCIANO
pierrefonds (54510) 2010-08-10 5:52
The presence of the people on the beach has an effect of scale. The point of view is sending my eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the buildings. There is a good contrats between the colors of the sky, of the sea and of the beach. Have a nice day.
Urs (14082) 2010-08-10 7:59
And the army of the sunseekers have arrived, at least in your shot. That's exactly the kind of beach I avoid, resp I go there to shoot pictures, like you did. Excellent POV with vibrant color and high sharpness. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my paddy field.
Fante (5429) 2010-08-10 12:29
amazing panoramic view on this coast. This is a real hidden treasure. Today is really difficult to find such lovely beaches. Perfect composition with good DOF and excelent sharpness. Beautiful colors and colors contrast. Bravo
Fis2 (81417) 2010-08-10 13:05
Good frame and fantastic colours.
Very impressive picture.
AKITA (15125) 2010-08-10 14:44
splendid summer light and colors are impressive,
deep blue sea and light blue sky are nicely combined to make beautiful wide perspective,
houses on the hill, people on the beach and parasols look shining in this cheerful wide view,
the summer hot ambience is superb,
josepmarin (57459) 2010-08-10 23:54
bonita vista desde un punto alto para dar una gran profundidad a la imagen y una buena perspectiva de la playa con su atmósfera de vacaciones.
La escena es muy dinámica, está muy bien iluminada y tiene unos colores muy vivos, sobre todo en el mar con un azul intenso muy bello.
Excelente trabajo, en una composición muy bien escogida.
mkamionka (29151) 2010-08-11 1:35
I think I would enjoy Sesimbra.
I remember that sexy festival happens there and now this wonderful beach.
Amazing vivid colors. Pretty composition.
Have a good day,
jafadabret (56497) 2010-08-11 5:06
Le filtre polarisant a donné à la mer la belle couleur d'encre bleue avec laquelle on remplissait autrefois nos stylos d'étudiant. J'aime l'animation de la plage. Un lieu idéal pour apprécier des vacances !
Charo (51208) 2010-08-11 16:14
Un lugar muy bonito y una foto muy atractiva con esa bonita playa junto a la villa llena de sombrillas y hamacas.
Excelente la composición y magníficos detalles y colores.

Please make me a reservation for next summer season in Sesimbra City! What a lovely cove that combines the facilities of a city to the excitement of beach!
Seen from that high angle, its a compelling incentive to enjoyment.
marietom (34607) 2010-08-12 5:37
Belle image colorée de saison, la mer et le ciel sont très beaux.

amazing panoramic view on this beach. Perfect composition with good DOF and excelent sharpness. Beautiful colors and colors contrast.
docks. This is a real hidden treasure.
raszid62 (18583) 2010-08-13 13:36
Uma vez que este tinha de ser um lugar bonito - uma praia maravilhosa, nas colinas costeiras e à sombra profunda do oceano azul. Então, alguém teve a idéia tola para desfigurar bloqueia local de hotéis e guarda-sóis de plástico na areia. É uma pena tanta beleza.
BluSimo (9392) 2010-08-13 13:52
what a beautiful beach, but is the colors of the sky and above all of the sea to being more fascinating, the sea seems a blue silk, is magnificent.
have a nice day
AiresSantos (56155) 2010-08-14 9:26

What a wonderful beach scene. I really looks like a post card from Sesimbra Beach. I really enjoy the high POV and composition. I guess that this must be the classic view of it. TFS and have nice weekend!

this is a perfect postcard shot. A classic composition that shows both the sea and beach in a balanced way.The blue of the sea looks so good like it has been painted on silk.

una meraviglia questa spiaggia con il mare di un blu intenso.
Mi piace la scogliera con le case e la piacevole confusione della spiaggia,
subhendu_bagchi (25065) 2010-09-30 13:03
what a view. What a stunning blue sea which contrasted beautifully with the golden sand of the beach. People added life to this colourful composition. Tfs.
Juntas (7958) 2010-10-20 8:05
Olá Filipe. Boa foto de Sesimbra com um pov pouco usual e só acessível a quem conhece bem o sítio :).
Cores excelentes com destaque para aquele azul do mar e definição muito boa. Formato longo, o meu preferido (com uma boder preta ficava espectacular :)).
macjake (51262) 2010-12-04 1:37
what a difference the stones make, the stones that break up the deep blue colour...adds so much dimension.
this is a lovely overviewof the beachfront, with all its lively activity, its architecture and its natural beauty.
wonderful colour arrangments
well seen and executed
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2011-11-18 14:36
The beach looks very spectacular . The blue sea looks fabulous. I like the whole view with the beach, activities of the people, buildings and other elements. A very sharp image with vivid colors.
