Hello dear TL-friends,

On our North Sea beach I have enjoyed many beautiful sunsets.
Even in amazing tropical places I've seen lovely sundowns.
But during my last holiday in France I've seen the most spectacular sunset....behind the cliffs of Étretat in Normandy.
This is what a sunset looks like in Étretat (France).

Hi Adri,
An amazing sunset with the sun peeping through a natural window in the rocks!
Fantastic reddish-golden cast in the sky with a wonderful reflection on the sea.
Very warm lighting adorning the sandy beach.
Marvelous waves leaving a lovely white surf which give impact to the superb composition.
Well done and neatly presented.

Hi Adri

Hello Adri,

This is perfect photo. The composition is great.


Nice natural framing here Adri - well positioned photo. To me it looks as if a little 'burning' in has been done and it works well to enhance the colours of the sunset.
Sharp throughout, deep DOF - good work.


Hello, Adri -
Unique and beautiful sunset scene - perfect timing to capture the sun as it was visible in the gap. The sky colors are magnificent. Great exposure showing the details of the cliff, shore and water with great sharpness. Excellent work.
