Photographer's Note

oggi si concludeva il 25 meeting internazionale degli aquiloni a Berck-sur-mer. purtroppo le foto degli aquiloni che ho fatto non sono un granche' perche' la luce era pessima, per cui vi mostro un lato della spiaggia che da' un'idea della folla che riempiva la spiaggia ieri... il vuoto al centro era riservato alle squadre di "piloti" degli aquiloni.
peccato non aver potuto fare foto decenti perche' gli aquiloni erano molto belli - potete vederne alcuni nel WS.

France is not very far from Amsterdam - it's a 3-hour drive until Lille, a bit further to the French coast. here we are at Berck-sur-mer, which hosts every year an International Kite Meeting. Unfortunately the light yesterday was horrible, so all my pictures of the kites suck - the best I can do is give you an idea of the crowd that attended the meeting - just multiply by 20 what you see in the picture and you will get a rough impression of the hundreds of thousands of people scattered on the beach and along the promenade...
the empty space in the middle is the enclosure reserved to the kite "pilots".
too bad I couldn't take good pictures of the kites, some of them were really stunning. I posted a couple as WS just to give you an idea.
