Some of my favorite recent landscape photos are shot in Lido along the first jetty.
My "trick" is to either go bare foot and stand in some water, and use the wet sand and receeding waves to create my mirror for a reflection. Or I run in and out of the remains of the waves while wearing shoes and wimping out on getting wet.
Here are a couple fairly recent photos (all HDRs from 3 images).
And here's a long exposure that looks relatively normal, but it is in fact a night shot done under a nearly full moon. The recent rain helped.
