Dunes in the Guincho's beach, in Cascais, one of most beautiful portuguese beaches, excellent for the practice of some modalities, as surf, windsurf, etc.

Nice photo, very soft, good colors and POV. I like it.

beautiful relaxing scene Jose.. i love sand dunes like this :-) lovely composition with the curves of the dunes, the grasses and the sea behind.. excellent ^_^

i couldn't resist a workshop in black and white just to see how it would look.. hope you don't mind :-)

take care,

Lovely shot Jose, I was planning to show a shot very similar to this in the next few days, guess I'll wait for a week or two.
Back to your picture, lovely natural colours, nicely composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for sharing.

Exposed well to show grain in dunes. Paw? marks in sand add interest. I feel there is a little too much sky that adds nothing to the picture and would therefore suggest a crop.

I like the simplicity of this one, good lighting and shadows, very effective.

Olá José!
Mais uma bonita composição.
Gosto particularmente das sombras e dos contrastes entre o areal, o mar e o céu.
Belas tonalidades.
Um abraço,

Very interesting composition with an almost sensual feel, Jose. I can almost imagine a body of a woman laying on its side enjoying the view of the beautiful ocean. Nice colours with the beige contrasting nicely with the blue. Well done!

Belo visual, praias belas de mar tão calmo.
Bom panorama de uma vista invejavel.
Eu sei como são esses lugares, uma vez lá, não há vontade de sair dai nunca.
Parabens pela foto, gostei!

Hola Jose.
Preciosa fotografía. Me encanta como visto la imagen y la sencillez con que la has plasmado, viédose un poco del mar al fondo. Los colores son naturales, y la composición es muy hermosa.

Hi Jose,

Beautiful scene you captured here... I love the blue of the water peeking through that lovely curve in the sand. The colours contrast very nicely... soft sharpness, I like this image very much. Truly beautiful! The white framing is very effective, well done Jose.
