Hello friends and colleagues today I offer this gloomy view of the Galician city of Corcubión, when you visit the Galician autonomous community must assume that some day it will rain, that's what happened to us this day that I show here today, I hope I like this view a little more cheerful by the presence and colorful small fishing boats, I hope you enjoy this gloomy picture.Corcubión is a Spanish municipality in the province of La Coruña (Galicia, Spain), located on the banks of the river of the same name. According to the INE, in 2008 had a population of 1,822 inhabitants. Its area of 6.52 km ² (IGE data), so does the smallest municipality of the province and at the same time the most densely populated. This town consists of only two parishes (Corcubión and Round), and is crossed by the C-552 that communicates with the neighboring municipalities and La Coruña to 94 km. The town was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1985.Corcubión sits on a small peninsula, rectangular shaped and surrounded by the town of Cee, enters the Atlantic Ocean between Estorde Cove and the estuary. In this small territory higher reliefs are around 150 and 200 meters high, being located in the center of the peninsula, from where they descend to the sea. In the noon-facing slope, sheltered from the winds and storms, lies the village of Corcubión. The coast is mainly rocky, with the exception of the section corresponding to the estuary, on this side, begins at Cape C and where, after a high cost industry where the castle of the Cardinal, is the beach and Quenxe then the port of the town. This land, formerly cultivated more space is mostly covered by dense forest more (pine and eucalyptus).Corcubión belonged to the county lock, but later passed into the hands of the Count of Altamira. During the Middle Ages, the village was the place of passage for pilgrims, after visiting Santiago de Compostela, continued to Finisterre route. During the struggle between Spain and England in the eighteenth century, the villagers armed several vessels. In August 1747, during the War of Jenkins's Ear, arrived from America Corcubión the ship of the line of the Spanish Armada Glorioso, landing in the village a load of 4 million silver pesos after being defeated in solo and successive clashes two English squadrons. The Glorious held in Corcubión emergency repairs before going to defeat another enemy squadron near Cape St. Vincent. The ship would finally caught in a rematch against British ships having exhausted their ammunition. This episode is known as the Glorious career. In the 13 and 21 April 1809, the French, knowing that both Corcubión as the neighboring town of Cee were preparing against him, attacked the area, the cruelty of the attack prompted people to flee to the mountains and the people taken over by the flames. The French sent 1000 men on 13, and 2000 infantry and 200 cavalry on day 21. On day 21 the defenders were aided by a party of marines led by a British naval officer. In January 1809 the French dragoons had already occupied the town, looting food and demanded money. He asked the Marquis de la Romana to send instructions on how to react, and he sent them a mail called Cayetano Melgar. The French intelligence service became aware of this and sent dragons on March 5 to imprison him and a French deserter who had taken refuge in the village. The village women stoned the French dragons until they were forced to go without the prisoners, which could cause cruelty when the French back again in April.

The boats seem to enjoy a day off in the rain. The image is well balanced and the distance in the eater gices deepness toward the red roof houses. Good mood a a gloomy day.

J'aime beaucoup que les barques pointent toutes dans la même direction vers le large. La rive est belle et très nette malgré la lumière difficile.

Hallo angel. Wasser, bunte Boote, ein Strandabschnitt mit rot gedeckten Häusern, dahinter Wald und Himmel. Insgesamt eine schöne und sehenswerte landschaftliche Szene. Viele Grüße, Wolfgang.

la exhaustiva información de tu nota completa un buen trabajo fotográfico, propio del espíritu de este sitio.
Nos ofreces en un eficaz encuadre la atmósfera gris y el cielo nublado típicos de las tierras gallegas, y al mismo tiempo, una bonita mirada sobre la ciudad, el paisaje donde se ubica, y el buen efecto gráfico y cromático de las barcas ancladas en su bahía.
El conjunto es my atractivo a la vista, y la buena realización da una alta calidad a la imagen.
Un abrazo, amigo mío,

El norte es lo que tiene, que siempre te mojas algun dia, yo tambien me moje algun dia en el Pais vasco, pero sus esplendorosos verdes lo justifican.
La imagen es preciosa y sedativa, con la tranquila superficie del mar llena barquitas, ideal la imagen de la poblacion al fondo.
A pesar de las nubes buena iluminacion y brillante colorido.
Disfruta de lo que queda del fin de semana.
