[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Rock of Gibraltar is famous worldwide. Situated in the southernmost spot of Europe, it is located in a strategic position, overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar, the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and the Moroccan coastline. Although Gibraltar is imposing, it actually measures less than six square kilometres in total. The inhabitants of Gibraltar are made up of Gibraltarians, British, Moroccans, Indians and Spanish.

The photo was taken near the the Spanish border town La Linea.

At the BG, on the left hand side, you can see Morocco.

Good view of The Rock. I have seen photos showing parts of the Rock before but not one like this showing it all.
I find it very interesting and thank you for sharing

Bom dia Tsilla,
This is what can be called a photo well done, both from a technical standpoint as a documentary. In short this is great postcard from the rock of such historic significance.
Again I agree with Janice, is a unique POV.

Ciao Tsilla, great view of famous rock, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Though I passed the strait several times, this is the first time I see Gibraltar by this angle, and seeing the rock with Morocco in the BG is really new to me! thanks for sharing!

Sharpness and clarity are very well.
Composition and presentation are pleasant.

Have a nice week,

Hi Tsilla,
An attractive postcard of the Rock of Gibraltar. I like the POV with such soft lighting on the rock dominating the town below. Good DOF leading to the distant mountains with the sea amidst!
Very good work.

Hello Tsilla, I have heard much about 'The Rock' but have never been there.
Herre, you give a very good panoramic picture of it and the surrounding landscape.
Very good DoF and PoV.
The blue sea and sky are the perfect backdrop.
Tfs, regards Jean.

What a wonderful view of this famous rock of Gibraltar, Tsilla!
Great sharpness and perfect focus with amazing sky which also add art and charm into the scene.
Colors are natural and clarity to far distance adds another piece of interest and curiosity into the picture.
Well done!

Bonjour Tsilla,
Belle présentation joliment encadrée du rocher de Gibraltar...
Quel colosse, il est immense et franchement, j'en ai souvent entendu parler, je ne l'avais encore jamais vu, j'ai donc cliqué sur la vignette, par curiosité, je ne suis pas déçue, c'est vraiment extraordinaire, les maisons au pied sont minuscules, ce qui fait une belle échelle de la dimension de ce roc...
