Essaouira Beach in Tangier. This was the view from our hotel balcony. Obviously, this is a favourite place for Tangier residents to gather and spend a nice time. This photo was taken close to midday and it was very hot so the beach was not that crowded. Later in the afternoon, people started to arrive and place filled up. There are many restaurants and clubs along the beach front. Spain is exactly north of this location, about an hour ferry ride away. At night we could see the lights of Spanish cities from our hotel balcony.

I wish the image was sharper.

Hello Sunil

A very attractive coastline you show us here with superb crisp, detail. I like the positioning, showing the arc of the bay and its size. The distant haze over the water adds good feel and distance, The foreground shadows of the buildings even have there place to a well seen and presented image,I love the colour sky against the beah, welldone TFS


Hi Sunil,

The sharpness is fine imho. Do locals go swimming here too, or is it only for foreigners? When I was in Java, nobody would swim in the water. They would just walk along the beach in family groups in the evening. They are very conservative Muslims in most parts of Indonesia. Good warm cold color contrasts between the yellow sand & blue sky. Tfs!

A vast landscape with amazing color contrasts has been caught here, Sunil!

Good sharpness and well clarity with nice natural colors.
The POV and DOF are well done, and blend of roads and the beach makes this work so special.
Well done!
