I would have bet on something more exotic than Portugal... Spectacular images of a wonderful coastline.

Wow! I have never seen something like this. The sand almost looks like stone.

Nature as the sculptor making beautiful designs.

I can hear and smell the sea with that first photo. Great capture on that leading edge of sea-foam.

The second one is interesting - that could be huge cliffs or a mini-step in the sand.

jabblog said...

Superb shots - the sea is so powerful.

Photo Cache said...

the foamy wave is glorious.

Preciosas fotos, si lo hubiese tenido que acertar no habría pensado que ésto era Portugal. Bonito blog. Un saludo.

The power of the sea is arguably the greatest power on earth!

Love the photos...the 2nd one, if it had a little more color, would look a bit like the Grand Canyon from a distance.

Thanks JM for your comments on Colorado in Color...I'm not sure what happened, but no comments were showing up...then, all of a sudden, there they were. Weird!

Fabulous pictures

joo said...

They are marvellous photos JM! I love especially the first one.

Now this is something you don't see every day! The rush of water along the muddy sand is marvelous.

Randy said...

I agree with Jacob about the power of the sea but at the same time there is such a softness to it.

Al said...

Beautiful photos. I miss the beach, I need to take a beach vacation soon.

T. Becque said...

A great place for feet! As I've said, I always love your beach images, just beautiful. I agree with Jennyfreckles, the second shot looks like it could be small or large.

What is amazing about these photos is that there isn't anything in them to help scale the size of the dunes and water. So it almost gives the illusion of being both a vast or small mass of water and sand.

As VP wrote, spectacular images!

Hilda said...

Perfect title, wonderful photos!

Gunn said...

To me the second photo looks a bit like a mountain further south than Europe!:) Nice!

Joanne said...

fantastico, isto deve ter sido agora não?

Small City Scenes said...

Yes the power of the water is amazing. Both shots are wonderful. MB

Dina said...
