Côte de Granit Rose or Pink Granite Coast is a stretch of coastline in the Côtes d'Armor departement of northern Brittany, France. It stretches for more than thirty kilometres from Plestin-les-Grèves to Louannec, encompassing Trégastel.
It has become a popular tourist destination due to its unusually pink sands and rock formations. This type of pink rock can only be found in two other places in the world, Corsica and China

Hello Monika ,
A great view of the Côte de Granite rose . Like the perspective with the Armeria in the Fg , the contrast of colors (the "minth" green water !) , and the excellent capture of the light despite of the cloudy weather .

A typical view of Brittany with Armeria plants covering the rocks... I like your composition and perspective very much, and sky is dramatic. Great association of all the colors for a particular atmosphere. Well done :)

A fantastic seascape from west France with marvellous warm cold colour contrasts between the turquoise sea & reddish tinted granite rocks. Good sharpness & high pov. Even on a dull day this place looks great. The repetition of the flowers at right adds to the shot. Tfs!

I like your approach on this famous coast a lot. You have composed a wonderful impression, lights and colors create a great mood. Excellent photo work!

Your choice to use a wide angle lens has given this picture a wonderfully dramatic composition with fabulous depth of field. The pink rocks are in strong contrast to the deep blue/green of the sea and that almost "explosive" sky is wonderfully moody.
Beautiful colours, perfect exposure and stunning sharpness. A fine note too.
