After some time now that I didnt post any picture, I am back with scenes from Valparaiso, one of the major port cities in the Southern Continent, and the biggest in Chile. Except for it's naval old port, Valparaiso is highly regarded as a resort town, especially proximate Vina del Mar, which resides a few km's north of Valpo (it's nick)...Valpo is also known for it's scenic hill residential area, a colorfull maze of houses that dot the hills and dominant the attention of many tourists.
Even so, I decided to start with the down town, and at that, the beach front of Valpo.
I know the horizon is a bit sunken to the left, but even so I post this picture as it delivers quite nicely the freedom feel that I felt that day at the beach: the kids playing in the water, the dogs running here and there, chasing crows and pelicans (numerous of those reside smack on the beach, fearing of no one...), the amazing skies, the sunshine...just a beautiful afternoon to past the time...More to come from Valpo!

Great cloud formation, these clouds are really stealing the show.
Composition is nice with the bend in the shoreline, brings a lot depth in the whole image.
Very good taken...the clouds are beautiful.

Not the usual post that one sees of Valparaiso. I must admit I didn't have the opportunity to go to the beach while I was there in February: so many things to visit!
The sky is just gorgeous.
Have a nice day.

Great sky here, even if the rest is not outstanding. Deep perspective.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Chen - what a fascinating cloud formation, wonderful scene, the black dog at the corner adds a nice touch.

Wonderful shot here... I can't help but feel a longing for the last time I was at such a beautiful beach -- that was just about this time last year as I stayed a few amazing days on the island of Koh Phanghan in Thailand.
Beautifully captured sky and what I particularly like is the slightly grainy/noisy blue... it gives it a totally different feel: more realistic and less plasticy-fake.
Well done, Lewis.
