Beautiful Legzira Beach. Giant rock arches descending to the ocean. We have wonderful time there.

Atlantic coast near little village Mirhleft in Morocco.

Walking along the beach and watching these arches stepping into ocean you can feel the slow power of nature. These arches are made mostly of sedimentary rocks and are under strong erosion. Two of the arches are 'ready', third of them is still 'under construction' by erosion, with big cave you cannot pass.
Walking by this beach and passing these rock arches you must attentively watch the tide - in some moment you might me bounded by water and with no return, unless you are a very good swimmer. ;-)

It is a pity, you did not post in Large Format, so we could enjoy better details.
Thanks and regards, Felipe.

Hi Michal,
I am really impressed with this photo. The soft light and clear details are stunning. I like how you've used the smaller rocks in the FG to create a diagonal toward the tip of the larger red rock. This photo has a real tranquil feel to is and was taken with great care.
