[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shot in Audierne's Bay (Britanny), at low tide time, when the shore becomes a desert. The weather conjured up to create a metaphysical atmosphere.

Scattata nella Baia di Audierne (Bretagna), in tempo di bassa marea, quando la spiaggia diventa un deserto. Il tempo contribuì a creare un'atmosfera metafisica.

Contrast increase and cut with iPhoto.

While looking at the picture, once back home, it brought to my mind a Van Der Graaf Generator's song called like this. The song is divided into parts, and one of them is titled "Dance in sand and sea". Perfect coincidence...isn't it ?
Mentre guardavo la foto, una volta tornato a casa, mi venne in mente una canzone dei Vand Der Graaf Generator intitolata così. La canzone é divisa in più parti, ed una di esse é intitolata "Danza nella sabbia e nel mare". Perfetta coincidenza...no?

hi claudio.
i would have liked to have seen this pic a little bigger.
600 x 312 is quite small for my old eyes. lol.

what i can see, i like.
nicely composed and lit. i like the tones a lot.

i look forward to seeing mor of your work.

Nice dramatic, deep emotion, well done Claudio.

Lost: war ... history or ? Well captured and the soft tones fits the content. BR Joerg


Intriguing and, as you say, surreal image which can fuel the imagination. A survivor from the landing of this concrete airship, perhaps. What the markings indicate? Who knows?

An enjoyable trip.
