Photographer's Note

July 14 a very sunny day, no spectacular clouds to the sky, alone a strong blue sky.
I was on visit in Oostduinkerke a small but lovely village to the Noth Sea, 10 mile of the French borders.

The world-famous shrimp-fishermen on horseback. Oostduinkerke is the only place in the world where shrimpfishing on horseback is applied. At the tourist office you can obtain a time-schedule with dates and hours of the "shrimpfishing on horseback" during the Easter holiday and from June 15 till the September 15.

In fact, this is a duo work, two horses pulling a net behind sight in a form of an open bag and by extension at the end of the drag net on the seabed, it cut shrimp caught, and afterwards cooked and gekuist sold at the price of 1 Euro for a bowl, incredible how many people there to come look it

As with other seafood, shrimp is high in calcium and protein but low in food energy. A shrimp-based meal is also a significant source of cholesterol, from 122 mg to 251 mg per 100 g of shrimp, depending on the method of preparation.

In future I would placing more pictures of this spectacular happen.

You get a second picture with a detail of the fisherman with his horse.

I hope you like it.
