Photographer's Note

Splashing near the famous towers of La Rochelle port.
Some steps ahead, a shuttle service allow you to go to the other bank, which by walk would take you a long time ! The tower you can see on this shot is the "tour Saint-Nicolas", which is built on the south bank of the port, facing the "tour de la Chaîne", from where this shot was taken. Formely, a chain was tighted every night between those two towers, to forbid accessing into the port. We don't know exactly when the Saint-Nicoas tower was built, the only thing we are sure : it was near the XIVe century. It is 36 meters tall (118 feets ?). You can visit it, but it's not free !

I like the "dynamic" look of this shot, and the moment which is setted in it. The colors aspect, very interessant to my mind on the original render (due to the FP4+ film), lost something of its quality when I scanned it. Pity...
