Fantastic (*´∇`*)
It's just A Golden Bay,
heaven on earth in summer.

Dina said...

At NIGHT 31 degrees???!!
That's just not right, not fair.
Oi, my sympathy to you all.

JM, The "stripes" of light reflected from the far-off street are lovely. It is interesting that at least one of the beachgoers appears to be "moon"bathing?

Green light reflected on the water? Did you read Great Gatsby?

Have a nice weekend -- Love your photo today!

This shot is full of mystery and wonder. Excellent work, JM. Too hot to sleep?

B SQUARED said...

The evening looks to be pretty hot, as well.

Paty said...

nossa, que calor hein!?! eu particularmente não gosto de noites tão quentes assim, não consigo dormir... deveria estar bom mesmo para tomar um banho de mar.

Lois said...

What a lovely picture JM! I like those reflections. It's very hot here too even at night. I am looking forward to autumn already.

Sharon said...

This one has a "film noir" look to it. Stay cool.

Louis la Vache said...

Hot summer night!

Here's the answer to Qu'est-ce que c'est?

Love the stripes on the water! What a terrific capture, JM! You can almost feel the heat! Have a lovely weekend! Stay cool!

Great night photo. With the temperature that high, why aren't the people in the water?

Regina said...

Great reflections and capture!

Happy Weekend Reflections

Gunn said...

This is just SUPERB!

Well done... This is a really nice night view, and those lights reflecting on the water bay are really beautiful... Inspiring !

James said...

What a beautiful shot but that's too hot for me. A few times this month it's been 39C during the day and 33 at midnight in Newtown. I hope we all get cooler weather. :)

joo said...

Beautiful reflections JM!
Here again is raining...strange summer.

Carolyn Ford said...

This is such a beautiful night scene on the water. At least hot nights get people outdoors to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.

Babzy said...

Very beautiful night shot , a hot night at the beach ready for a swim !

VP said...

We are now in the middle of thunderstorms so the hot days are gone... for now! Take care, that's a lot at midnight, and a wonderful image anyway!

cieldequimper said...

Good Lord, I'd be in the water! Fantastic shot, JM, have a great weekend!

Jacob said...

I think you caught very well the oppressive heat in this photo! It's steamy here, too. Welcome to global warming. I don't think it's going to get better anytime soon.

T. Becque said...

Nice image! That's a very well lit beach!

I understand if you don't want to disclose personal details, but I've noticed that you seem to be particularly knowledgable about plants. Are you a botanist or something related to that field?

Joanne said...

Linda! Valeu a pena o passeio...

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Star bathing. What else can you do when it so hot at night? The light adds to the sense of heat. Hope the weather breaks for you soon.

Hilda said...

I'd be lying down on the sand with my feet in the water.

Lovely evening shot!

magiceye said...

hot and happening!

Gine said...

Magnifique pour la baignade au clair de lune !

Francisca said...

Yes, I like, I like! Here it's our rainy season and the nights are a few degrees less than there... I can now sleep without air-conditioning, but still not without a fan.

Randy said...

Beautiful night shot. Such a nice golden color.

Dean Grey said...

So romantic, JM!

I wish I was on that beach with someone right now!

Small City Scenes said...

Oh my word!! That is just too sweltering--I think I may melt. I bet the water is even hot. MB

Tinsie said...

Sounds perfect to me!! Great shot too, well done :-)

My sister-in-law was in Portugal last week (she returned to Greece earlier tonight). I've not spoken to her yet, but it sounds as if she will have had a scorcher!!!

J'adore les photos de nuit avec l'eau pour miroir. J'étais à Lisboa l'été dernier.

Serline said...

The mellow colours really add another layer of enhancement to this beautiful night scenery.

Joan Elizabeth said...

The photo says to me ... a cooling breeze by the sea on a warm sticky night. delightful
