Shadow Shot Sunday -127 - Port Cap D'Ail




















After a week of the wildest, wettest, windiest weather, it is lovely to see the sun back shining on the Riviera, and bathing the coast in its usual colours of bright, bright blue - azure and cobalt. The coastal paths are open again, and a forty minute walk from my apartment by the sea, brings me to the harbour at Cap D'Ail - the border between France and Monaco. The calm seas at the port were offering up some clear, patterned reflections and shadows....

For more shadow shots from around the world, check out Shadow Shot Sunday. Enjoy!!

I just realized that your banner photo is the view from your terrace! It must be tempting to just sit there and watch the sea, the sky, the landscape…, but it’s good that you also make some nice walks … and of course that the nice weather is back!

Marvelous shadow shots for the day, as always, Catherine, I do love the boats! I'm so glad your good weather is back! Ours here in the northwest is pretty crappy right now to say the least, but it is that time of year! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Welcome back Catherine. Glad you survived the terrible weather. I saw some of it on TV5 (I watch the evening news religiously every day.) Great pictures of the coast. That 40mn walk to Cap d'Ail sounds tempting. I will have to give it a try next time I visit. Bon weekend! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

The first photo floored me completely until I was able to make out the contours of the boat and its reflection on the water. Loved it. Many thanks. These are magnificent images.

Greetings from London.

I love your display of marine shadows this week!

SHADOW, SHADOW

Shadow, shadow, if I could,
I would meet you in the wood,
Where the frenzied fairies play
In the blazing light of day.

But, dear shadow, I dare not
Go to that secluded spot,
For I fear the woodland path
And what’s more, the fairies’ wrath!

Frosty Shadows

This is a nice port, the yachts sitting snugly at their pier, the better to ride the storm out. Yet, such large bats seem out of their element when they are moored. They ned to weigh anchor and travel the warm Mediterranean now under blue sky!

Beautiful reflections-not even one ripple in the harbour water!

I went to Beaulieu yesterday, nothing to do anymore with your last picture! the beach is destroyed, there are tons of dead wood, trunks and many others things everywhere; Same thing all along the path from Beaulieu to St Jean..It will take a lot of work and days to turn the things back to normality. Glad to see that everything is alright in Cap d'Ail! Have a nice sunday!

I think this wild weather must be global! We've had very little wet over the past 6 months, but oh how the wind blew yesterday!

I love the boat shadows in the top photo.
