Cap Blanc-Nez

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 6 November 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Cap Blanc-Nez (literally "Cape White Nose") is a cape on the Côte d'Opale, in the Pas-de-Calais département, in northern France. The cliffs of chalk are very similar to the white cliffs of Dover at the other side of the Channel in England. Cap Blanc Nez does not protrude into the sea like a typical cape, but is a high point where a chalk ridge has been truncated by the sea, forming a cliff that is topped (132 m) by an obelisk commemorating the Dover Patrol which kept the Channel free from U-boats during World War I.

Mooi standpunt, die lijntjes op de voorgrond trekken je blik naar de spiegeling van de kust.
Een prachtig plaatje en mooi weergegeven in zwart-wit.
