Ar Yeoded – Le Yaudet

Looking for somewhere new to visit we took a slight wrong turn and ended up here. High atmopspheric pressure means good light…

Snow Moon 5-2-23

These taken with a Canon EFS 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS from our kitchen last night.

It is very difficult to get the exposure right!!

This came out a mellow yellow…

This is more how it appeared to the eye. Is the bright feature the impact crater?

Moody with cloud and tree…

Click on image and open in another tab. The resolution of the impact crater is good…

Frosty January 2023

We had minus five Celsius in the greenhouse. Outside it would have been a lot colder….

Trébeurden – Friday 13th January

Trébeurden est une station balnéaire bretonne sur la Manche, à l’entrée de la baie de Lannion, classée station touristique le 13 juin 1921. Elle correspond à la partie occidentale de la côte de granit rose. Ses principaux atouts sont ses sites naturels protégés, ses plages qui bénéficient pour deux d’entre elles d’une exposition sud et sud-ouest rare en Bretagne Nord, son port de plaisance doté d’un bassin à flot, son port municipal et ses autres mouillages. Trébeurden se trouve sur le territoire de l’ancienne province du Trégor. Ses devises sont : « ar mor eo ma flijadur » (« la mer est mon plaisir ») et « S’attache, qui m’aborde ».

L’île Renote – sur la Côte de granit rose

It was 18 degrees Celsius on the 12th of November!!!

Trecherous to navigate, ideal for smuggling, cognac from France and rum from Cornwall…
Every summer emergency services rescue “intelligent” people cut off by the tide on a near weekly basis…..
All calm and serene behind the rocks.
very crowded beaches…
Ilse au Moines and Ilse de Bono – named after U2
This reminded me of a breeching whale…
Very rocky…Mars before it lost the seas.
Built to last with a big slab of pink granite…

Autumn at Traou an Dour

The grass needs cutting and the central section needs clearing up.
As if by magic….
The mowing ninja is back…long shadows at 4pm CET…we are as west as Plymouth
Fresh growth in the field across the road…the earth is a beautiful shade of fertile brown. The farmers are very neat.
Lovely blue sky, les soldats are nearly naked plus a passing magpie..
Mr Heron catching the last of the rays in an oak before dusk…I need a tripod and bigger lens at this range…
