Hello fellow today I present this beautiful view of the Galician city of Finisterre, with the beautiful blue boat is the livelihood of many of its inhabitants' in the foreground, I hope you like it.Finisterre (Finisterre in Galician and officially) is a Spanish municipality in the province of La Coruña, in Galicia. Belongs to the region of Finistere. Its name derives from the Latin finis terrae (to Earth).Finisterre's origins lost in the darkness of time, but there is evidence of its existence by the geographical uniqueness of this place that attracted the attention of the Greco-Roman geographers and historians, but the data provided by these lack the rigor of modern historiography. It may be mentioned a paragraph of Lucio Anneo Floro, the late S. I, in which he asserts that Decimus Junius Brutus, after crossing the coast of the ocean as the winner, did not return to contemplate, not without some horror and fear of committing sacrilege, as the sun plunged into the sea and a flame came out of water. This spectacle could be seen from the Mount of Cape Finisterre. According to tradition in this mountain the Romans found an altar to the sun (Ara Solis) built there for the people who inhabited these lands before the romanization. In this mountain are the archaeological remains of Vilar hair that have not yet been excavated or studied, and the hermitage of San Guillermo closely related to the Christianization of a pagan places for fertility rites. Roman Era In the Roman and pre-mixed with objects she found in the parishes of Duio many remains that testify to the existence of a large population . The tribe inhabited these lands nerios and it is likely that in this valley was located Duio its main settlement, known as the city of Dugium . Camino de Santiago Related to the Camino de Santiago or Santiago Road and as the end of it was built the church of Santa Maria das Areas at the end of s. XII, where is the image of Santo Cristo de Finisterre. S Gothic carving. XIV and style similar to Santo Cristo de Burgos and Orense. Opposite the church was the Pilgrim Hospital, founded by Father Alonso Garcia in 1469. It is also the endpoint of the GR-1, long distance footpath that runs between Ampurias (Gerona) and Finisterre. Recently, excavations sponsored by the Department of Culture of the Xunta de Galicia have found large deposits of medieval origin in the San Guillermo Ermida4 showing the flow of pilgrims since medieval times.

Hello Angel,the bright blue boat contrasts very well against the subdued colours of the buildings that are so neatly stacked on the surrounding harbourside.
Th photo has great impact and many interesting details.

Fantastico el impacto visual, que da este barco azul en el centro de la imagen, que por otra parte tiene el enorme encanto del precioso pueblo como fondo.
Es una imagen de precioso colorido y gran nitidez. El marco esta muy bien armonizado y realza la imagen.
Muy bonito trabajo amigo mio.
Disfruta de un feliz fin de semana.
Un fuerte abrazo.

Hola, Angel, my neighbour today,
but I'd like to talk for this photo. I think, this composition is more interesting. Good presentation of so colourful fishing village. And very interesting historical note too. Thanks!
Best wishes from Russia,

una auténtica atmósfera gallega, con el típico día gris, que no te impidió tomar buenas fotos. Como ésta, en la que buscaste un encuadre muy eficaz para centrar la barca de pesca azul en el primer plano, pero dejando una vista agradable de la arquitectura tradicional que trepa por la escarpada costa.
De este modo nos ofreces una imagen muy rica gráficamente, con una luz bien gestionada, mucha nitidez y vivos colores que contrastan con la luminosidad neutra del día nublado.
Un bello trabajo, amigo mío.

colourful the view of the coastal fishing village with the boat on the foreground to completes the sea space between the waterfront and the sea.
I like the brilliant light and the vivid colours as the clarity and the sharpness of it.
Have a good day,Danos
ikeharel (46944) 2012-06-20 3:55
The blue boat, gave a fine addition to the image, contrast with the beautiful village that decor from the BG. I like how people living there, painted each house, relatively modern houses along the seafront.
Pleasent to look at.
mauro61 (52623) 2012-06-24 2:41
il colore della barca in FG apre bene la scena sulla costa ricca di tante case.
Malgrado la difficile luce hai ricavato una buona immagine,
