Shrimpfisherman on horseback, September 2016

They are UNESCO cultural heritage: the schrimpfisherman on horseback. I had planned for some time to make pictures of them, but for nice pictures you need the right setting, e.g. with the sun in the right place. So I checked their calendar and used a tool (The Photographer’s Ephemeris) to check the position of the sun at the different moments when they would go fishing. And 2th of September, at 8 am was the most interesting moment for a photoshoot.

And the sun certainly did the job, at least at the start. After some time, the clouds covered the sun and everything became grey.

More information on the shrimpfisherman can be found on the website of Koksijde.
