The tidal bore in the smaller arms of the Garonne

Author 'Gdix' : For many of the girondins, the tidal bore is a sea serpent, the Loch Ness monster. They have like everyone in the world dreamed of since childhood to see a day its fabulous wave, they have mounted several expeditions against the clock, established calculations, posted lookouts, but they were never able to fall on it. To add to his legendary reputation, it must be said that depending on the location of the appointment, its passage is preceded by an aura which is quite strange. The birds stop singing. And then you hear born in the distance a sort of low rumbling sound muffled, which is amplified gradually. There is a time of uncertainty about the nature of what is meant. Finally, when the rumbling has taken the time to grow, you begin to clearly distinguish them from the lapping, the sound of wriggling water. It is a sign that he is near, and we are seeing it finally. It goes by slowly.

An unusual appearance of the shoreline of a river. The tidal Bore, is a great sculptor, who shapes wonderfully these sandbanks purposes. The photographer was so well understood that it could only offer us to share.

Thank you for making us discover the arrival of the tidal bore and the commentary that accompanies your photo is very interesting. The photo is very beautiful, very well framed, taken at the precise moment...

A nice pleated wave, which enjoys the evening light.

I love your comment submission, it holds the attention, arouses the curiosity that accompanies a new encounter. But, how is this possible ? It may be a girondin today, living in the Bordeaux region and do not know the bore by hearing say !
Lorraine by adoption, born in Vayres where I lived my first few years and then all the summer holidays of my childhood and my adolescence I still have the memory of the place which was occupied by the bore in the life of my native village. The new generations would they at this point were cut off from Nature and will have no eyes for the small screen ?
Those who want to bridge a gap, stop at Vayres, go down the street to the port that leads on the left bank of the Dordogne river and wait for the rising tide.
If you have chosen a good day (the bore is worth, ask) you will not be disappointed.

thank you for this superb photo. Although gironde (as you know) in spite of an exile pleasant, 20 years in Paris, I've never seen the tidal bore. I hope to have the opportunity next year : where is it that you to me advise to go ? Your photo is impressive.

Hello Catherine and thank you for your passage in my history of tidal bores . I thought for some time that your geographer husband you still had her in the Great North. I only saw the bore only once. Me too, I had more or less spent my life to run after him in vain... For my first expedition failed, I must have been twelve or thirteen years old. I don't know what place to give you advice, because it is a reflux ocean which acts as a bellows of accordion depending on the conformation of the river, with places where it is interesting, and others where it is flat and discreet as a sole. But I advise you to a quiet place, with no roads nearby. The place that I have checked on the map is accurate to two hundred meters . I'll tell you more precise by returning control with GPS. It is a place where the arm of the Garonne river is narrow, but where nature reigns supreme and the silence (sound and light show) .

If you, Catherine, gironde pure strain, large hiker, moreover, you tell us never having seen the tidal bore, it is well that this is really an exceptional phenomenon. Appreciate this photo to their fair value, and thanks again to the author TB+.

Thank you for your precise answer. At this time we host our daughter, her husband and their daughter of 13 months during the construction of their new home, it is this that explains my rare forays on FEI : the time I miss, but I'm going to organize myself ! I was recommended the Coffee to the Port of St Pardon to witness the tidal bore, but I guess I won't have the calmness that you préconises.

Hello Lumixane : yes I confirm, the tidal bore is a sight not very common , especially for the large coefficients of tide. I'm going to try to attend next spring and if I get a photo of it I'll post about FEI.

The birds themselves feel a 'danger' due to the roar they receive, certainly before humans. Beautiful view report of this phenomenon

Hello Danièle. Thank you for your comment... I have the bore and you you have beautiful windmills. I've had the chance to see this phenomenon in a natural place and was very quiet, no road to high traffic in the area (the bridge of Arcens that allows the highway to big traffic step-over the Garonne river, is located 1, 5 km from here). The show was therefore a double dimension, with the soundtrack and its outstanding lapping and sounds of nature on a background of silence).

Ah so... A sacred phenomenon... ! The light is very beautiful, bravo Gdix !

Hello The cry. It is a sacred phenomenon, yes... and it is not bad for those who don't have tv, but the shows are rare. Must have the program . The light was a bit tough, because I had the sun almost in front, on the right.

This is particularly manifest at the time of the equinox. Thank you for having aroused my curiosity, you have given me want to poke around on the net. Your photo makes me much effect, when had she been taken ? I would love to have the opportunity to see, this sea snake TB.

Hello Lumixane and thank you for your expression of interest. I photographed the sea serpent October 14, 2011, at 18 hours 08. I understand that it can work for you, since the stories of Nessie do not take any more today. However, if you want to see it, it is necessary that thou goest. Except by a very strong storm, it should not come to you.

I've never had the opportunity to see this phenomenon, which is very popular with surfers. Your photo shows us very well here. Thank you.

Hello Labrume, and thank you very much for coming to see the tidal bore (without the miss) ... The surfers are very happy in spite of the turbidity of the water... because, unlike the waves of the ocean pounding on a limited distance, the tidal bore that never ends, and it could be on her back of real travel , duty-free for the moment.
