Hello friends and colleagues, today I propose to enjoy this beautiful sunset on a famous beach in the capital of my province, Cadiz. I hope you like it, then some letters on the beach.

La Caleta is a beach located in the historic center of the city of Cadiz (Andalusia, Spain). It was a natural port in which ships of Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans anchored.

It is the smallest beach in the whole city, and isolated from the rest. Its main attraction lies in its location, a stage that has inspired musicians and poets like Isaac Albéniz, José María Pemán, Paco Alba or Carlos Cano. It is flanked by the castles of San Sebastián and Santa Catalina, in front of the former Hospital de Mora, the Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences and next to the Faculty of Labor Sciences of the Campus of Cadiz of the university of the same name, in the neighborhood la Viña .

He has been the stage of several films, such as 007: Die Another Day, Alatriste, Manolete and El Amor Brujo.

The people of Cadiz consider it as one of the most emblematic places of their city, being a recurrent theme in Carnival couplets.

Hello Angel,
The sunset is beautiful, the warm sunlight breaks so beautifully through the clouds. The mood is really appealing, especially with the couple walking hand in hand along the beach. The pier on the left adds depth to the composition too.

Salut Angel,
très bien capturée cette luminosité du couchant avec le bel effet des reflets sur le sable humide, bien composée ton image avec la construction à droite et ce couple qui donne un côté romantique à la photo.

Hola Angel,
Nice the sunset view of the place with the colour tints of the sky and the created reflections on the calmly surface of the sea make the image even more attractive.The presentation of the people add scale in the image.


Hello dear angel and have a nice time
and a happy week end
the subject of sunset for a photo has no limits
fantastic capture in golden tones and according
to your useful notes please enjoy this beautiful
sunset on a famous beach in the capiral of
your province

Hola Angel,

I like how you have included the stage on the right, making a strong, pale guide to the beach and the sunset. It also creates a very good cool/warm contrast.
The sunset is a pleasing, romantic feature, highlighting the sky and warming the wet sand with its reflections.
The silhouetted couple, nicely placed, add scale and human interest.

Have a lovely w/e,
Bev :-)

Hello Angel,
The colours of the evening sky and the sun's reflection in the wet sand, as well as the couple walking hand in hand, create a very pleasant atmosphere.
Kind regards,

Hello Angel,
A lovely mood to this nicely realised sunset composition. The people walking along the shore hand in hand are well placed and contribute to that mood. Lovely lights and colours and some attractive reflections.

Hello Angel,

The silhouetted couple at left add a romantic atmosphere. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with wonderful reflections of the sunset. Tfs!

Ciao Angel, affascinante tramonto, magnifici riflessi di luce e fantastici colori, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hola amigo Angel.
Maravilloso atardecer en La Caleta, con el contraluz del malecon que lleva al castillo, el cielo tiene unos colores sensacionales, a la derecha este edificio que no se si es una especie de balneario le da un bonito complemento, una imagen que nos transmite paz y relax, que hace falta en estos dias.
Una foto con hermosos colores naturales, muy buena iluminacion y una excelente nitidez.
Me encanta.
Que disfrutes del fin de semana.
Un fuerte abrazo.

Hi Angel
fine ambience here, its got that romantic type of look and feel to it. the building and its curved shape attractively invites us in on the right :) and the sunlight reflecting on the wet sand is the best :) cheers

A very nice sunset photo, moody and silent, beautifully composed with a couple enjoing the evening atmosphere, my compliments

Hola, Angel!

Maravillosos colores de esta puesta de sol, y me gusta la inclusión de este interesante edificio a la derecha! El detalle del reflejo en el agua es muy bonito, y también la silueta de la pareja caminando en este bellísimo paisaje! Excelente trabajo!

Hola Ángel,

bonito atardecer captaste aquí, me gusta ese cielo con las nubes que tapan el sol y la composición con la pareja caminando sobre la playa, buen trabajo,

Un saludo,


Bonsoir, cher ami Angel,
Une composition emplie de douceur, de couleurs merveilleuses liées au coucher de soleil.
Un réel plaisir à contempler.
Désolé du retard problème d'informatique (liaison).

Hello Angel,
This is a lovely sunset photo. The couple on the beach have made the photo.

Hola Angel,
I think I have been on this beach. After having a walk through the old town we have rested there.
I like the combination of the structure in the right with the amazing sunset scene in the distance and also having the couple walking along the beach makes it so romantic.
Very impressive final effect!!

Hello Angel,

You have captured this end of a day very well. I like that you have included these two people in the image. It adds life and a sense of movement.

Best regards


Ciao Angel

La coppia che passeggia è perfetta per questo momento.

Hello Angel
