Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer another beautiful view taken from Mount Santa Tecla, where we see the Miño river at its mouth, on the border between Spain and Portugal. On the opposite the beach at the bottom Caminha and Moledo villa belonging to the brother country, in foreground pine Camposancos beach and shore, I hope you like this view. Then a few letters on Mount Santa Tecla.
Mount Santa Tecla (in Galician Santa Tegra) is an elevation of 341 m above sea level located in the far southwest of Galicia, in the municipality of La Guardia.
From the top of this mountain, the steep slopes, overlooks the mouth of the river Miño, the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains of Portugal and Galicia, so it is a strategic enclave inhabited long before the settlement of the Castro de Santa Tegra, as testify petroglyphs found there more than 2,000 years old.
In it, there is the church of Santa Tecla and near the temple door a stone tablet with many brands of stone, placed to mark the festival of 1979 in honor of the poveiros of Póvoa de Varzim (Portugal). Apparently, this is a reproduction in stone of the original wooden door of the chapel, containing those marks / acronyms, is to emphasize its similarity to existing churches, monasteries, etc.. in medieval Europe.

ciao caro amico del sud della spagna splendida visione di questa magnifica costa ripresa dal promontorio
mi piacciono molto le geometrie dipinte dalla costa e dal blu del mare
il cielo poi è davvero molto suggestivo
un caro saluto da pisa

I like the view of this endless beach ondulating along the coast. You had a fantastic POV and good light for an image of quality. I notice the wind turbines on top of the mountains.

Superbe vue sur la côte et l'embouchure du fleuve. Point de vue bien choisi. Une belle luminosité qui permet d'apprécier l'ensemble. Bien fait.
ourania (22798) 2014-01-22 11:19
this is a magnificent view and you are presenting it in a splendid way. Your composition is solid and delightful, the land and the colours are very well laid out in the frame. There's immense depth, the length of the coast and the perspective and scale of details are fascinating. I especially love the sense of height, the brilliant light and the vivid blue tones. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
RhodieIke (11052) 2014-01-22 11:29
Wow we certainly have a full view of Spain and the Bg, Portugal, that would not be the Monique mountain?.
Crisp and clear, a great one. Tfs. Have pleasant night.
macjake (49348) 2014-01-22 13:03
another interesting point about this photo is how they're using the Wind for engery...see the windmills way off into the bg? Thats very cool and modern at the same time.
lots of beaches here, and it works well to contrast with the blues and greens as well.
PaulVDV (19395) 2014-01-22 13:08
This is a very beautiful forested coastal landscape with a view of two countries on one picture.
The long beach is a bright demarcation between the woods and the water.
You looked for an excellent high POV and present us a bright vast landscape.
Best regards, Paul

snunney (76436) 2014-01-23 3:07
A most impressive and beautiful view captured here in great detail. The image is very nicely lit and has superb colours and sharpness. You had the benefit of a reasonably clear day resulting in an image with excellent depth.
jhm (131876) 2014-01-23 4:49
The line of the sand beach cares for a very lovely detail on these picture.
The village between the forest and windmills care for a good panoramic view.
Colours and presentation make these picture attractive.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Enjoy the day ahead,

Tubiste suerte con el tiempo, para poder captar esta soberbia panoramica, desde el monte Santa Tecla, yo cuando lo visité no tube tanta suerte, pues con nubes no es lo mismo, maravillosa la linea de costa y el abundante verdor, el cielo tambien esta precioso.
Un bonito color, en estos tonos tan deliciosos.
También tanto la nitidez, como la iluminación están genial.
Muy bonito trabajo amigo mio, muy bien rematado con un marco muy adecuado. Me gusta
Disfruta de un buen dia.
Un fuerte abrazo.

Wish you a very nice weekend.
krzychu30 (14996) 2014-01-25 4:47
this POV provides us with fabulous view of the whole area.But for me as fascinating as the view in the distance is the FG with the greenery,so excellently captured with all details and textures(sharpness and clarity are here outstanding!).
Beautiful composition with delightful,vivid colors and lovely light.
Wish You all the best

serp2000 (35826) 2014-01-26 3:03
This is panoramic composition is great! Excellent choice of the point of view, attractive colors, fine DoF. But the electric windmills on the background are good bonus for this landscape. Well seen. TFS!
Have a great week ahead!
jcpix (9324) 2014-01-26 19:03
This is some kind of view alright, a wonderful sense of the coastline and inlet. A well composed picture too, very balanced using the foreground as a solid base and contrast of color. A clear and well defined image of the natural vegetation and sea, all under a bright and sunny sky with just enough clouds for added effect. Sharp and well focused from front to back. Thanks for sharing this impressive vantage point. Enjoy the week ahead.
