UDAZKENA HEMEN – AUTUMN HERE
by Aljaz Babnik
Year complete: 2021 – Duration: 19:24 – Country: Basque Countries
“Every summer, tens of thousands of tourists descend upon the Basque Country. They come from near and they come from far. They come to eat the food, drink the wine, spend peaceful days on the beach and late nights out on the town.Then autumn comes and the crowds vanish. Storms begin to explode in the Northern Atlantic, sending bigger and bigger swells to Basque shores. The leaves on the trees change colors and the birds fly south towards Africa. You can feel yet another summer slipping away.
The waves can be big or small. The wind can be crisp and clean or onshore and gale force.
Sometimes you have to drive a few hours. Sometimes the best waves are right in front of you. Autumn is full of surprises, but it always produces moments when all the stars align and memories are created that will last a lifetime. It’s magic — and we want to share that magic with you.”
