Caption

Jumieges is situated at the banks of the Seine about 60 kilometers upstream from Le Havre where the river reaches the sea. The tidal range at Le Havre is about 8 meters and the tidal bore of the Seine reaches until here and even further. Not far from Jumieges, at Villequier, Leopoldine Hugo – the daughter of Victor Hugo – and her husband Charles Vacquerie drowned in 1843, after their boat capsized in the tidal bore.

When travelling I like my equipment to be light, so I often do not carry a tripod and a panorama head. This panorama was taken just before the ferry took off to cross the Seine, without even enough time to unwrap the string of the philopod.

Equipment

Pentax K200, Pentax 10-17mm, handheld, PTGui
