Photographer's Note

Hello with all,

Here's a new test in my thême on the Basque Country seen in Infra-red.
The test of the day is the bay of Getaria in Spain. Latitude: 43º18,4 ' N
Longitude: 2º43 ' W

Before to have built its ramparts, in XIIIème century, Getaria had its fishing port safe from the island of San Antón.
During the Middle Ages and even after, whereas the harpoon still launched out to the hand, the inhabitants of the city devoted themselves to the hunting of the whale, like their neighbors of the other Basque ports.
Their blazon, representing a whale with a harpoon inserted on the back, is pilot of this activity and not a product of imagination.

Once completed work to connect the city and the island of San Antón, at the beginning of XVIème century, the port of Getaria would become one of the surest refuges of the Gulf of Biscay and an important point of inshore fishing.

For a few years and according to the harbour plans have established by the Government Basque, of great work were carried out the port: new moles, accesses and carparks suitable for the trucks and the others vèhicules.

The port of Getaria has today a very good infrastructure to be used as well like fishing port like marina.

Thank you in Foryoshi for PPS for its council of BW treatment of this photograph.

I like the contrast brought by the infra-red and which shows once again that Infrarouga brings each time of the quite different results.

Thank you for your comments.
