Photographer's Note

In the Ursa beach the sunset is visible all year long. The soft sandy beach has however a strong swell almost all the time, since it is turned northwest to the open Atlantic ocean. There are many rocks, caves, natural ponds and life taking advantage of the natural sheltering. In certain times of the year there is an invasion of foam wich is of biological origin, not a pollution but a sign of an intense activity of the life systems. This foam may build up on enormous waves and cover the whole beach. As the tide lowers the beach is flattened and becomes a mirror covered with patchy foam. At any time though, much care has to be taken with the tricky waves that may come again suddenly without warning... a delightful play with natural elements... an almost primeval feeling.
