Photographer's Note

I spent about 3 hours in Monte Carlo while staying with friends in Nice. I have to say that this place struck me as being over-built, over-crowded and rather artificial. But it was a matter of interest to go there, and as the new-ish camera was a permanent extension of my face I did take a few shots.

This one I shot as darkness was about to settle on the Mediterranean coast. I found a spot that looks isolated and peaceful here, although in reality it is only a few hundred metres or so from the hubbub of an underground carpark and mall. Out of the camera this was darker, underexposed. Adjustment of the levels brought out the colour and gradient in the sky. I've cropped only a tiny amount from this shot. The edifice on the left conceals all the hurlyburly of the famed harbour tucked in behind it, and all the highrise development, and the view looks across to the next headland and the one after that, relatively pristine.
