belle photo, mais les immeubles modernes au milieu gâchent un peu l'ensemble

JM said...

@Olivier: I couldn't agree with you more, these modern monsters have nothing to do with the coast line. It's awful!

Halcyon said...

Very nice!

Woody said...

Good thing this is a bay, it would be difficult to swim near those rocks if there were waves crashing all around.

joo said...

Lovely place, but I think it would be even more beautiful without these modern buildings.

Looks like the bathers are having fun in the sun JM, pity about the huge grey buildings, apartment blocks I guess, they don't seem to fit the beautiful coast line!

Sharon said...

Ahh...another beautiful waterfront view. Wonderful.
JM, yesterday at the Thai cooking class, chef Ola served us a wonderful crisp white wine from Portugal. It was called Gloria Blanco and it was excellent.

Beautiful capture of a beautiful place, although I do agree with you and Olivier in regards to to the monster buildings!! We have far too many here in the US! Hope you have a great week, JM!

Very nice picture!

VP said...

Fascinating coastline, beautiful water, it is good to remember this place quite well...

Jack said...

It is a pretty place. If we take a long view, those gray blocks probably won't be there forever.

Andrew said...

If you live on the inside of one of those modern buildings the views from your windows must be fantastic... from the fantastic view looking back.???

I wonder who thought those modern blocks would be good just there? Otherwise it looks such a pretty spot.

Jarart said...

Looks like a gorgeous day!

I was going back and looking at all of your great posts that I missed!
All beautiful as usual.

Randy said...

Nice shot. Not so sure about those gray buildings.

Leif Hagen said...

Looks like a lovely place to take a dip! Abrigado!

Looks lovely - and such a mix of new and old buildings.

This is such a gorgeous spot and I always appreciate your photos of it. The water has such brilliant color!

Cildemer said...

Tanto azul! Lindo, lindo! Quem me dera passear por aá!

The water looks delicious.

Carola said...

Nice shot. I love it. Love to remember.
It's a beautiful bay and we went swimming there while in the marina (with a thiny sailboat).
