Discover the Audomarois marshes by boat, in the early morning

Who does not know Philippe Hudelle! This autodidact has been crisscrossing the Audomarois marshes since 2014 to delight us with his photographs which he publishes on his page “Balade en Audomarois”. He is also the author of several works available in good local bookstores, including “Audomarois, les Marais” and “From Saint-Omer to Aire-sur-la-Lys”. Originally from Tatinghem, Philippe is a true lover of the region's landscapes and photography. Over the course of his walks, he refined his techniques: working with light, sublimating a panorama, … But above all, adopting a state of mind specific to the photographer to capture the scenes that present themselves at the right time. Indeed, to be a photographer, you have to have an eye!

At dawn and during the morning, the Audomarois marsh awakens

This morning boat trip to Saint-Omer is an original way to appreciate this natural space in a different way.

In the morning, the land and the rivers seem to belong only to the wild fauna, as well as to the market gardeners tending their fields and cutting the cauliflower with a knife.

On the occasion of our unusual visit to the marsh in the morning, observe nature waking up, the mist hovering over the water, the ballet of swans and ducks... A visual and auditory spectacle within the bacôve equipped a quiet electric motor. This route will also allow you to discover the typical suburbs of Lyzel, the market gardening suburb of Haut-Pont, the inhabited marsh and the wild marsh, but also the cultivated marshes!
