Artist's Description

Found in Le Bassin de Arcachon is Europes biggest Sand Dune.

The dune is about 60,000,000 m³, measuring around 500m wide (from East to West) by 3km long (from North to South). Its height varies from 100 to 117 metres above sea level. (this I am glad I didn’t know before we set out!)

We arrived to find that Earth Day were forming a human tree on the dunes….we were joining a queue and becoming part of 3,000 people up there! I did manage to find a couple of shots where there were very few people this being one of them! It was an amazing sight and well worth the climb up, not only were we part of something incredibly special (over 3,000 trees are going to be re-planted after the gales in this region) we made it onto French TV and I had a radio interview (first time ever! and in French) and it was our friend Bev’s 40th – what a day!
