Sunset at Tarifa in Spain

What a glorious sunset. The two guys in the foreground are actually flying a kite. If you look very closely in the high res. version of this image you can just about see the strings. However, I prefer to imagine them deep in philosophical conversation. Tarifa is a strange place. Because of the strong winds here where Africa and Europe, the Med and the Atlantic meet it has everything needed for excellent surfing and so is full of terribly cool people from all over Europe. At the same time the locals have been driven entirely mad by the hot winds from the Sahara and, of course, the ultra-high capacity power cable running over to Morocco - all in all the place has a rather edgy and interesting atmosphere, architecturally and otherwise Africa feels very close.
