Am glad you got back safely from this inpending storm.
You have chosen such a good angle here, the line of orange beach shaders hilight the shape of the beach and incoming waves. Light exposure and amount to the cliff, buildings ans rock to the left balance well with the backdrop of hazy storm-like conditions. Neat work, tfs

Hi Francis, those waters certainly do not look friendly.I like the low cloud cover and the froth from the waves on the beach. Fiona

Bonjour Francis Xavier,
Superbe cliché avec cette mer enragée, déchaînée, le ciel assombri, ne présage rien de bon....
Tous les éléments de cette photo, nous font plonger au coeur de la tempête, c'est magistralement orchestré ...
Couleurs fabuleuses, lumière superbe ,un moment sombre qui devient pour l'oeil, magnifique....

I can hear the roar of the ocean, I hope they remove those umbrellas before the storm arrive. I like your pov and nice catch of some light against the dark clouds of the storm. Very well done, tfs.

Boa tarde Francis,
Of great strength and drama this photo of a wild moment of Monterosso al Mare to be a quiet place of leisure after the umbrellas that stretch along the beach.

Hello Francis, a dramatic scene! Not the ideal holiday but you were able to take some good shots no doubt; this one gives us the full effect of the storm.
The angry colours of the clouds over the sea and the coast are quite unusual.
Excellent PoV showing us the rocky hillside and all the parasols neatly folded.
Thanks for sharing, regards Jean.

The stormy skies add an element of atmosphere that enhances your well chosen pov. It looks a beautiful place to visit. TFS
Sorry missed this fantastic work!
I like the immense mood you have caught in this scenic location, Francis!
The sea waves look dangerous and great windy conditions persisting at the time you took the shot are well captured.
Good management of light and exposure, showing natural colors of waters and well kept contrast against the hill.
Nice view of the daily life scene too!
How was weather during your recent holidays to Italy?
Thanks for sharing.

This is such a beautiful place and your composition and HDR treatment as well as the wonderful lighting due to the stormy weather shows it in a unique way. You have captured the movement of the rough sea very well and I love all the different tones of blue and green in the sea and sky. Magical shot, it looks like a painting.
