Theme Day: Lines


Lines of light show the Basse Corniche (lower cliff road) and the Moyenne Corniche (middle cliff road) from Roquebrune-Cap-Martin to Monaco. There are four roads that run along the coast here - the Basse, the Moyenne, the Grande and above the three, the Autoroute. You can see le rocher (rock) of Monaco and Port Hercule in the distance. Photo taken from the medieval hill village of Roquebrune as night was falling.

It is so fun to see everyone's interpretation of Theme Day. Beautiful shot.

Gorgeous, Jilly. And amazing how much it looks like our Southern California coastline driving toward Malibu from Santa Monica.

Beautiful photo. Your use of light makes an already beautiful scene even more enjoyable ... I like Coltrane_lives comment (smile). Your photo does indeed, rock.

Oh this is so beautiful I can't express myself without being corny. Jilly, this is one of your very best photos I can remember and you have had a heck of a lot of magnificent ones. Bravo mon amie.

You've managed to pour a layer of glamor over an already glamorous place. Perfect eye-candy. 8^)

Beautiful! I love night shots, and this is a wonderful take on the theme. Must be lovely to drive through those cliff roads!

Such a beautiful interpretation of 'lines'!

I love lines of light specially when viewed from the sea... Happy Theme Day!!!

Hyde DP said...

Yes I too love this show of lights - great view.

Jim said...

I like your choice. Follow the lines, you never know where you may end up.

One to hang on the wall? I can see that you planned this long in advance, visiting all the sites to place the illuminations just where you need to enhance the features.

A very nice picture, J. (and I was amazed when you told me it is hand held without a tripod. Is champagne so effective?).

Kate said...

LOL: Line of lights; great minds...right? Thanks for your visit! It's a lovely view and I envy your location in the universe!

Chuckeroon, this one was taken on the tripod (at least I think it was!)- now I'm forgetting...

Rambling Round said...

Lines of light snaking around the mountain...very pretty!

Halcyon said...

Another great choice!

Kuanyin Moi said...

I like this photo even better than your other Menton one--you always share the MOST beautiful photos!

John said...

Beautiful image of the coast at night.

Felicia said...

Wow! I never get tired of seeing the beautiful views of your cities (Monte Carlo & Menton). This is stunning!

Hi Jilly, I'm so please you had a look at the Cairns lagoon pics; I'm going to do a separate blog of our week up here, so I'll let you know the url - lots of memories....I'll try to get a pic of Trinity Beach.

Cairns seems so different to how people tell me it was (boring, basically, and just a staging post for other places - now there's a reason to be here).

Piero and Ben have gone on an inlet cruise to a croc farm today. I can't bear the things at all, so glad they are doing it while I am conferencing (I've just bunked off for a bit!)

I walked a long way along the boardwalk this morning, and will show you pics of that on the new blog. Amazing. A huge skate park with not a scap of graffiti. Well used (and well maintained bbq's all the way along. Anyway, I'll shut up now and let the pics speak when i get them up. Pity noone does a Cairns DP!

I reckon it could be a nice place to live except during The Wet. I think from about mid-Oct I'd want to be out of here - too much humidity does me in! And going in and out of aircon and humidity not good for sinuses etc. I prefer drier heat.

Laurie Keller said...

Hi Jilly ... wow to your photo. This is up there with my favorites, and there are many. Love from the Prairie.
