Photographer's Note

From L'Aber-Wrac'h website:-

http://aber2004.free.fr/eng/aber2004.php

"On the north-west coast of Finistere better known as the “coast of legends” is a region known as “pays de Abers”. Aber in Breton is roughly translated as a sort of ‘ria’ or drowned valley.

Of the three, Aber W’rach, Aber Benoit and Aber Ildut, l’Aber Wrac’h is undoubtedly the most important having 32 kilometres of depth.

Scattered with reefs and small deserted islands, l’Aber Wrac’h low rocky coastline is rich in ‘wrac’ or seaweed and a thriving industry has built up around this.

Situated at the entrance of the estuary, the port of l’Aber Wrac’h offers the opportunity to discover the joys of sailing and fishing from both land and sea, along with beautiful beaches of fine sand and wonderful coastal walks. L’Aber Wrac’h is an important and frequently visited sailing area as well as being a popular holiday resort.

The genuine friendly and welcoming reputation of the port of l’Aber Wrac’h were confirmed on the 6 and 7 of July when Aber 2004, a huge maritime festival, took place".
