The Cliffs At Etretat - France

Best known for its cliffs, including a famous natural arch. These cliffs and the associated resort beach attracted artists including Eugène Boudin, Gustave Courbet and Claude Monet. Two of the three famous arches seen from the town are the Porte d'Aval, and the Porte d'Amont. The Manneporte is the third which cannot be seen from the town.

There are some walkways up from where you have nice view from above, but leaning over the edge to capture the full size of depth is almost a must, just as using a wide angle to get the whole view.

Enjoy...
