Throwback Thursday: sur la plage de Cancale

Here we are in Brittany again. At the beach of the picturesque town of Cancale you can find this small square with some booths. They are selling oysters here. Right in front of the coast you can find oyster banks set up by fishermen to breed oysters and harvest them more easily. When enlarging the image you can see some of the banks in the water. The beach right next to this square ist covered over and over with oyster shells. I guess, thousands of generations of oyster shells are laying here, thrown away by the people who bought and eat them. It’s an interesting sound when walking over them.

Take care!

Backlit fountain

Monochromia

I came across this wonderful backlit fountain, when I was in Dresden in October 2015. The low standing sun enlightened the water in such a wonderful way, so that I couldn’t resist to take some photos.

Full-Frame (35mm, FX), focal length 14mm

More of my images can be seen at my own blog.
