Because of the large "backlog" I built up, I decided to begin with a selection from our 2019 vacation in France, Bretagne first.
(instead of finishing 2017 first and then beginning with 2016 or 2018 :rolleyes: - no risk of boredom if I finally reach the retirement age)

Last year we picked a region in France: Bretagne or Brittany.
We stayed in a small village Mousterlin situated right on the Southern coast of Bretagne.
I just picked 14 images from the coast and the marshes of Mousterlin, the city of Quimper and the view on the Pointe du Raz.

Kind of fitting to end with this one as that was just about the last one I took.

No idea yet on what I'll be working next time I have some days off. As they say in France: "L'embarras du choix" (too much to choose from :))

All of them are nice but two of the images especially resonate with me: #3 because of the mood and large spaces and #9 because of the complementary relationship between the menacing expression on the subject's "face" and the intense shadow it is casting. Perfect use of depth of field in that one as well.

Nothing happens in my life until Junior goes off to University, at least another year and a half from now. Should be all-clear by then ... I hope.

I googled it, and got this :eek:
"The island women used to wear a black headdress, and in the past, they had a reputation for enticing sailors onto the rocks by witchcraft"
Yep you are right .... Lots of legends on this part of the French Western coast ....You have also the Ghost boat thats sails during storm between the mainland and the Island ...On the right of the Pointe du Raz you have a sandy beach called " Bay of Deaths" .... ( Now you all know : i am a witcher :ROFLMAO: )

Thank you, Mike, West, Menbrial, Alex and Dan!
Very much appreciated!

#3 is also my favourite.

And thanks for pointing out my spelling mistake, Menbrial.
I'm hopeless without the help from the spellchecker :rolleyes: but Mousterlin was also unknown by this one :)
And thanks for the story about Sein. Fascinating. You travelled a long way from your place of birth...

Very nice, I'm almost due for another Euro trip sometime in the near future.

I - as everyone else here - have so many to go through and process I will never be bored.
Nice set. I really like numbers 1, 3, and 11.

Very moody and impressive B&Ws. As much as I like landscape photography, your buildings are what intrigue me most — from the subject themselves to the way you capture and represent age, is so well done. Having shot with you I am especially excited by #9, the way you attend to small details is so refreshing.

Very nice series Bart. #1,#8 and #11 are my favs.
That sounds like an excellent idea, Menbrial!
Please do.

Your life path sounds quite the opposite of mine :)
My wife and I grew up some 10 Km apart, we went to college some 120 Km from where we grew up and we have lived our live some 50 Km from where we grew up :D
