[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well, let’s go back to Tanahlot. I took this shot also after sunset. There is a red flag on the cliff, meaning no visitor is allowed to stand on that dangerous spot, due to hard rock and/or shallow water at the bottom –not to mention big wave that can roll and pull you down all the way to the bottom of the ocean. Surely this can cause fatality if a person falls from this slippery cliff, but… as you see, there was a woman –I could see her with my teleconverter- stood on the cliff, raised both of her hands. I guessed she praised God for such a beautiful nature she saw….

Hello Benyamin,

Great shot and a lovely note explaining what danger the woman is in. It certainly looks a wild place well worthy of a red flag

Bonitos detalles los de esta imagen Benyamin, el cielo, el mar... la luz es estupenda ya que le ha dado la fuerza que tiene esta panorámica.
Un saludo cordial, JL.

Benyamin, the picture is very nice. It has a great mood, so that I almost "hear" the sound produced by the water.

Great composition.

Para los que vivimos cerca del mar esta imágenes son maravillosas... Gracias Benyamin, por el "sonido de las olas" saludos

Seems the red flag serves as an appropriate warning, nice shot, good retreating light.
