The Great Tide

On March 19, 2011 the moon was at its closest point to the earth in 19 years which caused what has been described as «historic» tides in Cádiz, Spain.

Cortadura Beach grew many meters this day, and there was a lot of people going for a walk on the beach to witness this natural wonder. At other spots in Cádiz one could see old ruins appear with the low tide, which was especially interesting because it is the oldest continuosly-inhabited city in the Iberian Peninsula and possibly all southwestern Europe.


This was my first time doing a timelapse, so appologies for not making it the most interesting. It was done with my GoPro HD Hero because I needed the DSLR for walking around shooting. The battery limitations of the GoPro forced me to leave it inside the house connected to a power outlet so it could shoot all day.

Thanks to Alex for letting me use his window view over Cortadura Beach!
