The Pontusval Lighthouse is one of the icons of Brittany. Very photogenic, it serves as a relay between the lighthouse of the Île Vierge and the lighthouse of the Île de Batz. It is erected on the tip of Beg-Pol, commune of Brignogan-Plages. The construction of the lighthouse was decided following numerous shipwrecks on the coast, and was completed in June 1869.
For this picture, I came a few days earlier to do some reconnaissance, but I didn't imagine having all the ideal conditions on the day of the shooting: sunset, clouds, everything was perfect. I just used a GND filter to balance the exposure. Don't hesitate to go and see this lighthouse and the area around it: it's beautiful and you won't regret it!
