Reflections on the Beach

We drove over to Trevou-Treguignec with Roger and had a bracing walk along the beach. No pictures of Roger yet as he never sits still long enough when we are outside!

Sunrise on the Sillon

Restaurants on the Sillon

Up early to catch the sunrise on the Sillon de Talbert and l wasn’t disappointed. With nobody else about l could take my time getting the shots l wanted. Alas, it soon clouded over but l was happy with what l got.

The small lumps in the foreground are lugworm casts. Hundreds of them.

These rocks make up part of the new sea defences to stop erosion of the fragile sand banks. Well, that's what l am assuming. Personally, l don't think these are necessary as they are not on the sea facing side. I'll try and find out.

My next walk on the Sillon will coincide with a high tide to show it at its best.


Colour v B & W

Beach at low tide

 

I thought l would play about with photoshop for a while and try my hand at HDR colour and black & white and see how they compare. The images are, again, taken on our peninsula on a very low tide. It is incredible to see how large some of the rocks are out at sea and are submerged when the tide returns but not by much. Another reason why l don’t have a boat!

So, back to the colour v B & W thing. I love both but B & W has a timeless beauty to them. I remain sat on the fence for the time being.
