The Ice Cream Vendor – Biarritz 2



I went back to La Grande Plage more than once. I always do so when I find a spot I love to photograph to try and shoot it with different light conditions. Also trying to change the composition often helps in getting more dynamic framing. So here it is a second shot of the same ice cream vendor on the beautiful beach of Biarritz.

Location: La Grande Plage, Biarritz, France.

What to shot: The small ice cream vendor at the entrance of the beach really appealed to me, being so evocative, especially at the blue hour, when its artificial lights started to compete with the fading natural brilliance of the sky.

Ideal time to shot: Sunset and the Blue hour.

Gear: Standard zooms.

How to get there: Biarritz has both an airport and a train station. The Grande Plage lies next to the centre of the city and is easily reached by foot from the town. The nearest bus stop is “Mairie – Edouard 7” served by lines A1, 8, 10.

Coordinates: 43°29′01″ N 01°33′42″ W

  1. My instant reaction was “Haven’t we seen him before ?”; and then I thought “something’s different, though…”
    And I was right on both counts – amazing !
    It’s a gorgeous shot, Bruno; and the biggest version shows exactly how marvellously you managed to get a kind of icing of light around him … Wonderful !
