Unfortunately, no water today, and the area looks completely dry. It's strange because I was there on October 28, but as the summer and even the last weeks have been exceptionally dry, maybe this could explain what happened (or maybe there is another explanation...). Anyway, thank you for sharing ☺
Julien CHIQUET 02.11.2018
Thanks for your comment Laurent. As far as I know, the level of the "river" strongly depends of the rain on the last days, whatever the rainfalls of the whole season.

Hi Julien! Gorgeous photos! Will this spot be affected by the high tide? I will be there on October 9th during the super tide at 20:20 and am wondering if I can catch the sunset (19:30) from this spot, or will it be under water? Thank for any advice or knowledge on the topic. :) Cassie
Julien CHIQUET 02.08.2018
Hi Cassie, I never went there during such high tides. I don't think it will be under water, especially one hour before high tide, but I am not 100% sure. May be someone who has been there can complete the spot description ? By the way, this spot is really nice. Enjoy it !

I love this photo. I am going to visit here next week and was going to shoot some photos. Is this shot with a telephoto to get the compression?
Julien CHIQUET 04.05.2018
Hi Alexander. Thank you for your nice comment. Il shot this landscape with my 17-55 at 35mm on Apsc. I made my other shots around 17mm.
