Alicante Marina at Dusk

Alicante Marina at Dusk

Ross and I paid a couple of trips to Alicante Marina when we were in Spain, but I have to say that my favourite time was in the evening as the sun was setting. I am particularly happy with the first photo and pleased with the framing. The sculpture is a bronze figure of Icarus from Greek mythology who flew too close to the sun and plunged to his death – although quite why he is carrying a surfboard is beyond me!

If you are on Instagram, then don’t forget that my Instagram linky, InstaLinkLove, is open until Sunday evening at 9.30pm (probably one of the easiest linkys out there!).

    It’s a great picture and nothing like when I was there back in 1978.

    The light is so beautiful in all of your photos. I love the first photo, definitely my favourite. At first I didn’t realise it was a statue and wondered who had such pointy shoulders! #MySundayPhoto

    Hi Victoria, all three photos are quite beautiful. The goldenness of the sun makes the Marina look quite lovely.

    What a stunning peaceful scene Victoria… you’ve captured it beautifully. All three photos are fantastic.
    I wonder why they chose to put Icarus carrying a surf board… hmm

    Such gorgeous lighting, a perfect time of day to be in the harbour with your camera. It looks stunning there.

    Beautiful sunset, the surf board would make an interesting twist to the Icarus tale!

    What a beautiful sunset – it looks so calm and peaceful there and I love the gorgeous colours of the sky reflected in the water.
