Last weekend the Atlantic coast of France experienced “les grandes marées” – high sea levels with spectacular waves and the risk of flooding in coastal towns.
After the high tides recede there is a bumper crop for fishermen and others seeking seafood.
I took this photo on the Île-de-Ré and now that I look at it, it reminds me of a musical score…..almost as if the people are the notes! Two ways to think of “composition” I guess.
It wasn’t only people out taking advantage of the receding sea…..
…..the birds were too (and isn’t there a nice symmetry or reflection between these two images?)
