Wow, that really does come up high. Does it ever get to the stairway and the vegetation?

It looks like you will have a wonderful weekend ahead based on the sparkling waters rolling into this beach - enjoy!

What a gorgeous coastline!

Sharon said...

It looks like a prefect day for some beach activity.

Anzu said...

It seem to be the best season to travel in your country. I can not help loving the shining seashore (゚▽゚*)♪

Woody said...

I so wish I was there now, it's a really inviting and beautiful photo with great colors.

@Brattcat: Winter storms are a problem! There are 520 beaches at risk on the Portuguese coast (falling cliffs mainly), 70 of them will disappear in a near future. This small country's getting even smaller... :-)

What an incredible-looking beach - I wish I was there!

Jarart said...

An uncrowded beach is a wonderful thing. Lovely!

joo said...

Eh, be there:)

That's torture!

Gorgeous beach, superb capture! Sad to read about so many beaches being at risk! Have a great weekend, JM!

Your answer to Brattcat is distressing.
I can't even imagine having so many beaches at all.

Regina said...

Wow love the view and the beach.
Happy weekend!

JM said...

P.S. I am sorry! I should have written 152 instead of 520 beaches on the comment above... LOL! Sorry, again.

Jacob said...

Looks like a very attractive place...but a long hike down the walkway to the beach [You composed this very well!] Is he water warm this time of year?

Jack said...

Outstanding, JM. The beautiful beach. The glistening water. The composition with angled stairs leading down to the water. Nice!

Randy said...

I love the color of the water in this shot!

Bela praia e se tem a exata impressão do mar estar batendo muito. Embora tenha se referido as falésias como um perigo, elas são lindíssimas.

We do a lot of conservation of the beaches here in Perth JM, like planting in the sand dunes etc. Do you do this sort of thing in Portuagal? Tantalizing picture!

Joan Elizabeth said...

I love the sense of anticipation in this shot. Walk down those stairs and ramp and you do can frolic on the beach like those little people down there.

Beautiful. A rainy winter's day in Sydney today, so I wish I was there instead.

Marias Teater said...

I agree with Woody - it is so inviting! Wonderful light!

Your coast is really amazing!
