Seaside v mountainside

Seaside v mountainside

After a great weekend on the shores of Lake Lacanau on the Atlantic Coast, I had the great idea of comparing our two cultures: seaside v mountainside – after all, we’re not that different – and the pictures prove it!

 

Sand groomer v snow groomer

 

As the sun rises or night falls - on sand or slope - groomers remove every human and animal trace - and it’s the same routine night after night.

 


Surfer VS Riders

 

Freedom, thrills, communing with the elements – water or snow: the passion’s the same!

Ah! Open spaces, the great outdoors, going back to basics, engaging with nature – if you love the sea then there’s a good chance you’ll love the mountains too, and vice versa. Whaddaya reckon?
