Memories of Tuscany: Marina di Bibbona

Memories of Tuscany: Marina di Bibbona 

Just about 10km south from our accommodation at Cecina is this small but pleasant seaside resort of Mariana di Bibbona. Like lots of the beaches around here, many places are reserved for those that are willing to pay. I – well, I wander around with my camera looking for scenes like this, and I very seldom sit down to sun-bathe. Hope you enjoyed this free view as much as I did. Especially in full screen
Ps - We will visit the hillside village of Bibbona later.

What a great idea for a photo Herb...........you must have been up pretty early!

I like your composition..............and the symmetry. The colours work well together and you've captured the whole scene in great depth and detail. A cracker of a shot!

I'm with you on the subject of sunbathing..........I can't think of a more boring way to spend a holiday. A couple I know went to Turkey a couple of years ago and spent 2 weeks there without ever leaving the resort grounds............and then did the same thing in Cuba a year later. What a waste of time and money..!!

Not very early at all. The exif says it was about 10:30 which is approx right (I suppose it might have been 09:30 though as I always forget to alter the camera time zone settings. It was the quite season for the Italians here. We stayed on a big holiday park and we were almost by ourselves -that was great for us! I have family who never venture from their hotel complexes when abroad -just lying in the sun with a book and beer! Like you, -not for us.

Cheers, Herb

A great composition and colours, Herb. I'm happy to sunbathe on the beach, but organised commercial beaches like this are unknown here and I'd also give it a miss.

Thanks George. Yes, we do not have them either -thank God! I have been know to lie on a towel for almost an hour in the sun when I was a teenager! Too dangerous by far nowadays - also with C19 still about.

Keep safe. Herb

The free view is great Herb :-)) I can't sit still on a beach for more than 10 minutes!
I know people who experienced a far off country just like Keith mentions.
Cheers, Rosa.

Herb Riddle club has replied to Rosalyn Hilborne club
There are many about who want their holidays as Keith says but also quite a few of us 'miserable folk' about too who do not sit down, preferring to carry on walking looking for shade.

Cheers, Herb

My first thought was that this was some sort of social distancing control!
Then I saw the date of your shot, Herb.
These people were obviously slightly ahead of the game (by a factor of nine years!)

Hi Herb

A very different and interesting picture, which I really like

Fantastic colours and wonderful composition as always.

My idea was the same as Andy's "Keep two metres apart!"

Best Wishes, a nice weekend, and stay safe!!
