Tempête sur la pointe des Baleines #2 ~ Île de Ré ~ Charente-Maritime ~ France

Newer Older

** EXPLORE #65 22.09.2011 **

Je vous livre une deuxième version prise exactement une seconde plus tôt que la précédente, lors d'un des couchers de soleil les plus mémorables auquel j'ai eu la chance d'assister, au pied du phare des Baleines, à la pointe nord-ouest de l'île de Ré.
Laquelle préférez-vous ?

Il faut dire que les conditions étaient particulièrement difficiles : un vent terrible (pas question de faire une pose longue !), des embruns qui venaient constamment salir mes filtres et aussi quelques gouttes de pluie, mais quel spectacle !

Au premier plan une écluse à poissons (construction en pierres qui permet de capturer des poissons en les piégeant à la marée descendante et qui participe aussi à limiter l'érosion marine).
Au loin le phare des Baleineaux.

Île de Ré (in English Isle of Rhé) is an island off the west coast of France near La Rochelle. This island is completely flat, it is 30 km long and 5 km wide. A 2.9 km bridge, completed in 1988, connects it to La Rochelle on the mainland.
Which version do you prefer ?]

Lee foundation kit + filtre GND Lee 0.9xHE + filtre Proglass Lee 0.6 ND (=ND 4)
