Ploumanac’h: First photo shooting 2021

2021/01/01 at 10 a.m. at Ploumanac’h near the Parking du Sémaphore…

It’s not fare from Trégastel!
We have been very lucky, only 10 minutes later, and clouds covered the sun for the rest of the morning!

The mystic Guardians of the Island of Milliau

Have a look at the mystic guardians of Island of Milliau!

The Castel is located between the Pointe de Bihit and the port of Trébeurden opposite the island of Milliau and is a hill made of granite and green.
On its southwest side you can discover a rock that, shaped by the elements, shows a colossus, a figure with a shadowy eyebrow, to which has been given the name of “Père Trébeurden”.

Other rocks can, depending on the angle of view and the sunshine of the moment, conjure up imposing figures like the sculptures of Easter Island. I took the liberty of finding a name for them …


Ploumanac’h – Côte de Granite Rose

Lighthouse Ploumanac’h

Ploumanac’h, December 20, 2020, photos taken in the morning – even if you’re not a fanatic early bird, just be there around 9 a.m., weather permitting. It wasn’t a stormy day, but a sustained northwesterly wind provided some nice waves, which came to break on the pink granite rocks.
Ploumanac’h , probably one of the most popular photo sites in France!

Maison du Phare – Côte de Granite Rose

Located on the Sentier des Douaniers, near the lighthouse in Ploumanac’h , the “Maison du Phare” with its closed shutters is one of the focal points for photographers …
granite blocks in the shape of a human head, mushroom or duck are others.
Continue to Trégastel, there are others!

Firewalking: It’s Pandiale!

Pandiale – firewalking in Saint Louis, Réunion Island

Obviously, for us, who have been instilled with the fear of fire since their early youth, we remain speechless in front of the many walkers, who brave the heat of the incandescent coals and who stoically cross the tikouli, a pit that welcomes the blaze.

What impressed me quite as much, however, was the spectators’ respect for a cult, which is not theirs. Whether they are Christians, Muslims, atheists, they have come to see, to follow a magical rite, but all, without exceptions, are there in respect of a world that is not theirs.

Côte d’Albâtre

From Etrétat to Fécamp, from Quiberville to Veules-les-Roses and further on to the North the white cliffs of the Alabaster Coast attract lost of tourists. It is possible to walk and hike along the cliffs on the top as well to get challenged by the pebbles along the shore. Both are well worth the effort.

However you’ll have to take care. In regular landslide there may be tonnes of rock coming down unexpectedly. So don’t either get too close to the cliffs as well on top as well as on the bottom. A good photographic shot isn’t wort the danger!

On the other hand you’ll have to keep in mind the high tide times: Along the shore several passages are blocked by hides, you you wouldn’t like to find yourself blocked on your left and on your right, facing the still incoming tide…
