Photographer's Note

The bore phenomenon ... An incredible wave for the happiness of the surfers and the kayakists ! At the time of the tides with strong coefficient, the tide puts 5h30 to traverse the 150 km which separate the Atlantic Ocean from this meander of the Dordogne river. At this place the tide is transformed into a surprising wave... the surfers benefit from this mini single tidal wave during ten minutes.
On this photo, the spectators (which one sees the shades with the bottom of the photo) come many for the occasion to applaud the best surfers... as this one(the third on the basis of bottom) that can sees bearing on its back his/her child, Bravo !
In spite of a very muddy water, this wave breaking in front of my camera gives a beautiful effect under the luminosity of end of afternoon.
