Sunset at Èze-sur-mer

eze sunset



Towards the end of a long walk down the cliffside path from Èze village to Èze-sur-Mer. Apparently Nietzsche used to take this walk while living there, and wrote some of Also Sprach Zarathustra there. Not being one of the Übermensch I did this walk in the descending rather than ascending direction :)



drop to the sea



Here are some acorns from a holm oak, spotted on the way down.

Gorgeous picture! I love the one with the sunset. What settings and which lens did you use?
(Frozen) (Thread)

Nikon D40, Nikkor 18-55 ED G II (ie the kit lens, which is the widest I have) @ 34mm, f/5.6, 1/20s ISO 800 handheld.

Oh my, those pictures are amazing. The twinkling city lights in the sunset in the first are just so magic-looking. And I like the leaves at the top of the drop to the sea - it gives a soft spot to an otherwise very vertical shot and makes it really interesting.

More leaves added to the blog posting for you.

Very, very nice shot - liking the leaves, thank you! Those acorns are so slender and elegant compared to our big, chunky American ones. :D

We have the normal oak ones here too (although a bit further north). The leaves on a holm oak are odd too, no wavey bits like on a normal oak.

Beautiful pictures, Nantonos. Thanks for sharing.

Those are lovely.

The pop-up blurb on the village is interesting too---I like the Jardin Exotique with all the cacti.
This is near where you live, right? Now that it's nearly February (the hideous month) here, I wish I lived someplace where exotics grew outside......

Yes, its close to Nice which is where I live. We went there on the bus, which climbs up to the village; and came back on the train (trains like flat land so the train line runs along the coast).
