Cap Blanc Nez (France) - 2013

by Björn Roose November. 08, 2018 450 views

Honestly, the most beautiful coastline of Flanders is nowadays in France (Cap Blanc Nez used to be Blankenesse).

On the other side of the North Sea (the Western European appendix of the Atlantic Ocean), here called the "Pas de Calais" in French, "Nauw van Kales" in Dutch, and "Strait of Dover" in English, you'll find the notorious white cliffs of Dover, but of course those are no more than a sad copy of the white cliffs of Blankenesse :-)

Anyway, if you're into enormous beaches disappearing under the waves in no time, impressive cliffs, fossiles (though you're not allowed to chop them out of the rocks, you are allowed to pick up loose ones and there's plenty of them), and - of course - photography, Cap Blanc Nez is a nice place to be.

PS: I do not repost all my previous Flickr photos to Photoblog, but ... I have all my photos on another medium too: Pinterest. You'll find all my Cap Blanc Nez-pictures here.

A tricky place too. While shooting #4 (and a few others, which I didn't publish here) I kind of lost track of time while the tide was coming in pretty fast. My girlfriend (she's on a few of the pictures) was yelling at me, but I failed to see the problem until only a few meters of beach were left. Anyway, I had to run sweat smile
