Excellent mon ami! What a beautiful place. I hope to visit that part of France one day. I'm so glad you were there to capture it for all of us.

This is what inspires poetry and great paintings.

Lydia said...

Oh, marvelous! The whole scene dazzles like a gem. In the final shot the boats look like pieces of obsidian floating on hot lava.
Gorgeous!!!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Gorgeous colors. Perfect exposure. Thanks for your comments. You have quite the talent for finding unique websites. I enjoyed them both. Even the slug one.

Joanna said...

What incredible light! Who needs photoshop with skies like that? The reflection on the steely water is stunning.

Nathalie said...

These photos made my knees tingle.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Oh Wow.. how did you tear yourself away?? so picturesque.. Beautiful photos indeed.

Bonnie said...

Exquisite. I have Photoshop and would not touch those beautiful photos with it.

louciao said...

No Photoshop, but Skill, Eye, Timing, Soul, to say nothing of a good camera and, above all, the great good Luck to have married La Grenouille and thus be summering in such picture-perfect surroundings.

Of course, a song comes to mind

though the words are not apropros.

Flemish Masters eat your hearts out!

louciao said...

PS.
"When the sun goes down--oooh-- and you're not around..."
well, I guess in that case you miss out on a big photo op. This just to say that another song comes to mind, one that you shared with me some many months past...can you remember which one? You'd have to be Fleet of foot and not be listening to YouTube on a Wooden Mac in order to catch its refrain...
:-)

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Stunning shot and better than a travel brochure for Brittany. If you can bottle those colors, you could make a fortune... so dreamy!

Bises,
Genie

mythopolis said...

Incredible shots, Owen. And how amazing it must have been to actually stand beneath such a sky!!

Le Journal de Chrys said...

Rhhhhoooo UN VRAI RÉGAL!!!!

Et un immense merci

Mention spéciale pour la dernière!

Céline said...

Et bien je ne vais pas être originale : tes photos sont superbes et font rêver... Tes photos me plongent en Bretagne, merci Owen !

ρομπερτ said...

how wonderful you painted.

please have a good friday.

(no photoshop for me either.)

Owen said...

Thanks to one and all, tingling knees and all, sundowns creeping around back stairs, fleet feet in mac coats, and yes, it was hard to tear ourselves away from this and go home to bed... but it was quite dark when that happened. We had just finished dinner that night, when out of a corner of a window I saw something on fire in the sky, so I grabbed the camera and went running out the door, and trotted half a mile across the village to the best place to watch this from, and then stayed there for about 45 minutes as the light slowly changed... a treat for the soul, moments like that.

Merci à toutes et à tous,
C'était bien une de ces soirées impossiblement belle... la chance d'être là, et merci à la Grenouille, car c'est vrai, sans elle, je ne serais peut-être jamais allé dans ce village au bord de la mer en Bretagne...

Lorrene said...

What could be more beautiful.I always love your photo's.

Nadege said...

Owen, I am so glad you work in France and can enjoy "les vacances". I was reading about american vacation and holidays which amount to few days off here and there.

-K- said...

Nicely done!

Roxana said...

oooh

i don't know what i could add here which hasn't already been said (i especially echo Lynne's comments)... i am sorry to have been rather silent these recent weeks (could it be months?), i hope better times will come some day (by 'better' i mean: with more time for one's secret delights :-)


bisous, de tout coeur...

clo said...

Ahh, Owen tu régales mon âme avec ces couleurs extraordinaires...chaque coucher de soleil ou lever,est une pièce d'art unique,a quoi bon photoshoper...il n'y en a nul besoin dans ce genre de circonstances...difficile de faire mieux c'est déjà parfait...
Bisoux a toi et bon weekend..:o)

@eloh said...

Beautiful, as always. I should have guessed that your camera was always in the loaded, cocked, and ready to shoot mode.

Mouse said...

Just gorgeous! Love the light on the clouds and water, it's the only time I really like the color pink.

Stickup Artist said...

Oh how glorious. Sunsets like that don't come around often. Such a sweeping and epic view. Looks as if you made a climb at just the right time to get these stupendous babies. I have a feeling I know just how you felt standing there by looking at these images; the heart aching with an overflow of reverence, awe, and in total love with the world...

distracted by shiny objects said...

Impossibly beautiful. As is life.

James said...

The sky reflected on the water is so beautiful! This brings back memories for me, not of France but Lucerne Switzerland where I saw almost the exact colorful sunset.
