In late spring last year I visited the little island of Belle-Ile-en-Mer, a gem in the Golfe de Morbihan in Brittany, France. I captured one of its natural beauties, the Port-Coton needles, called in french the Aiguilles de Port-Coton.
Their name comes from the foam-whipped, heavy weather, as large flakes sparkling like cotton.
In the cove of Port-Coton, you can see the rocky needles with myriad shapes standing against the sea elements. Claude Monet described the Aiguilles de Port-Coton with the following words : "This is sinister, diabolical, but superb and I do not find elsewhere such thing".
This is indeed an amazing location, especially at sunset. After a very stormy day, the sky burst with colour which resulted into stunning light effects. I had to be there. So I took my camera and tripod and witnessed a wonderful show.
I captured three exposures and blended them together to get a good dynamic range.
