This is the "Côte Sauvage" on the western side of the Quiberon peninsula.
A chilly wind is blowing but the sun is quite warm. The man on the beach is standing here, enjoying the roar of the waves.

Good morning Gunnar,
Great nature's beauty, with the "tiny" man figure against the mighty rocks.
Million of years with waves pounding and wind blow fromthe ocean, look as mnanaged to detach one big triangle-shaped rock from shore.
View is awesome, well applied picture.

Hello Gunnar ,
I have to go there ! This place is only 60 km from my hometown , but i visit it too rarely . You've beautifully presented this superb wild beach , with quite difficult light conditions (back light) . A little overexposure in the clouds . May be a problem with The G Canon serie . I'd the same problem with my canon G10 , so I've givent it to my daughter ;).
The presence of the lonely man gices a sense of scale . I like especially the "armeria" in the FG

Spectacular panorama and an interesting title for this image. Is a battle we'll never win, in my opinion...Great colors, I like the dynamic of the waves.
Have a good day.
snunney (72796) 2013-09-05 2:09
This is a most appealing composition, beautifully framed and with superb light and colours. The man stood all alone is a definite plus point. I like it very much.

Very nice picture...Nice place and a very good POV...I like the color and the composition here...
All the best,

Den här var ju också bra, även utan rött inslag. Den gulbruna stranden och det grågröna vattnet är färgstarkt nog. Fina parallella linjer bland vågorna och i sanden. Den ensamme mannen ser liten och bräcklig ut i den storslagna naturen. Ljuset är vackert och det är fint exponerat.
Sergiom (45567) 2013-09-05 5:22
Le plaisir d'avoir une plage au complet juste pour soi.Profiter de ces moments de réflexion devant une mer agitée et un aussi beau paysage. Le point de vue est parfait.
gervaso (9247) 2013-09-05 5:32
A great POV to show the beauty of this place! The man looks like a little insect there, and is a good scale to the image. Wonderful composition!
Fis2 (77066) 2013-09-05 5:46
I like POV and composition.
Man add savor of photo.
Very well done.

grandiose vue e tiamge quelle vagues avec l'écume blanche le personnage en petit dans l'immensité sur le sable et le rendu sur la roche et la falaise quel panorama splendide.
bravo et amitié
subhendu_bagchi (21140) 2013-09-05 6:59
a nice view. Good composition in square format. Love the position of the man in the frame in front of such vast nature. A good shot with vibrant colours and superb depth. Tfs.
annjackman (15581) 2013-09-05 7:35
A wild seascape with the powerful waves crashing onto the beach. The solitary man gives scale and a sense of loneliness. Beautiful natural colours from the soft pink of the flowers in the FG to the hardness of the grey rocks. Delightful image and apparantly free from commercial development thankfully.
Kind Regards, Ann
rychem (13740) 2013-09-05 11:01
Beautiful land/seascape, excellent quality of the photo, beautiful rocks and great graphism of moving water

Hello dear Gunnar,
I don't know what happened with your previous entry but this one is also amasing.
A capture with a perfect pov and layout. Good compo.

una bella rappresentazione dell'aspra natura della Francia che si affaccia sull'Oceano Atlantico con le rocce aspre che nascondono belle spiagge come questa inclusa nella tua bella composizione.
Colori e nitidezza eccellenti caratterizzano lo scatto che si avvale di un soggetto di grande valenza.
Ciao e buona serata
PaulVDV (17333) 2013-09-05 13:26
The 'Côte Sauvage' seems not to have stolen its name.
When looking at the image, we can hear the onrushing waves.
Beautiful capture of this little bay and nice inclusion of the flowers on the foreground. I also like the colour contrast between the orange sandy beach and the blue ocean.
Best regards, Paul
ourania (18738) 2013-09-05 14:11
I absolutely love the wild beauty of this scenery and the way it surrounds and embarces the lonely man. He must feel full of energy and peace at this moment and the longer we view the picture, the stronger becomes the impact these feelings have on us too. The movement of the sea is fascinating, the textures and the colours, exalted by the intensity and angle of the light, are fantastic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
worldcitizen (5629) 2013-09-05 20:26
This landscape alone would be wonderful, but having that one man there is even better. The waves, the rocks, the plants in the foreground, all combine to make an amazing scene. Your wide view lets us enjoy so much of this spot. I can really feel the power of the ocean and the smallness of man through this composition.
Periko (1401) 2013-09-05 21:13
I am not a fan of landscapes, but this is really beautiful. I like the frozen waves and the well exposed beach.
jjcordier (67332) 2013-09-05 22:48
Malgré la petite surexposition dans les nuages, j'aime le point de vue trouvé sur cette belle petite plage de la Côte Sauvage.
gildasjan (39558) 2013-09-06 1:17
Une endroit de la côte sauvage que je connais bien.C'est rafraichissant de regarder ces vagues déferler sur cette petite plage.Trčs beau rendu des teintes de la mer.
batalay (33439) 2013-09-06 4:28
May 29th appears to have been chilly, as you explain. The lone stroller on the beach creates an effective focal point, with his meandering footprints leading up to him. I like the composition of the rugged shoreline, especially with the waves rolling in. Excellent composition,
pajaran (41787) 2013-09-06 4:38
Lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazana plaza i trenutak sa talasima na vodi.
Covek uziva u lepom trenutku.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje za vikend.
Nice view ...
A good time recording, contrast and perspective, beautiful colors.
Good work, beautiful beaches and demonstrated moment with the waves on the water.
A man enjoying a nice time.
Have a great day, all the best for the weekend.
abmdsudi (32529) 2013-09-06 7:24
The water condition has certainly created some super photo opportunities here and a beautifully lineup of rock formations, sandy beach and the tiny figure just to finish off. The view point renders the wide expanse and depth with the pounding waves add lots of drama and amazing what wind can do to this ..
A nature that is beautifully exposed, well colored and a great pleasure to view, Congrats.
Silvio1953 (105653) 2013-09-06 8:18
Ciao Gunnar, great POV on lovely beach with fantastic cliffs, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
PiotrF (2380) 2013-09-06 11:04
Hello Gunnar ,
Nice unique place. I like how in the scene is the man.
Colour and presentation be superb.
eldancer1 (20850) 2013-09-07 7:46
In the scheme of things we are such a tiny part of the universe as illustrated by the photograph and yet we try to control mother nature. Awesome capture of the beautiful scene! Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
Buin (42122) 2013-09-07 11:36
This is much more than a photo - it's beauty, it's atmosphere, it's magnificence. What a view! A place really to feel good, to enjoy. You surely couldn't find a better point of view ...
Hats off! ...for this one.
Greetings from Siegen where summer today obviously ended. Next week we will "enjoy" only 14°C.
A nice weekend to you both! I hope you are getting better from day to day.
wolf38 (29118) 2013-09-07 23:06
Hello Gunnar. What a magnificent landscape. Water, waves, sand, beach, rocks and sky give a wonderful impression. It all reminds me of a poem by Lord Byron: ""
"Are not the mountains, waves, and skies, a part Of me and of my soul, as I of them? Is not the love of these deep in my heart With a pure passion? should I ..."
Best rgds, Wolfgang.
s_lush (16054) 2013-09-07 23:40
Inclusion of a man into this beautiful seaside composition gives it more expression and philosophic meaning. Excellent idea, good balance of the compositional details, favorable light, lovely colors and perfect quality of the image!
kato (9572) 2013-09-08 7:00
You're capturing well this nature scene by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful harmony of beach, huge rock, pretty pink flowers on green grass and calm sea. it's also tasteful for the color layers of the sea and the ripple which rolls in to the seashore. And, a man standing on the beach and enjoying the roar of the waves draws out an additional good impact in this image.
emka (64214) 2013-09-08 9:57
hello Gunnar, it loos very wild here. And the lone man is so tiny and seems helpless against the power of Nature. The flowers in fg are very nice, it can be Armeria maritima.
I will be in France in a few days but no so far west. Warm regrads
cornejo (22590) 2013-09-08 10:41
Hello Gunnar, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting beach, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light and color. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
All the best from southern Spain.
Glint (5927) 2013-09-08 12:15
this is a stunner. I like the way the light falls on the rocks and exposes their textures. A great mid ground too with the waves lapping the sand and the man standing and enjoying them. Nice detail in the fg of the sea pinks.
zoomer (4227) 2013-09-08 15:57
Hello,impressive vista one can smell the sea.Crisp and clear image,wonderful composition.Friendly regards Wolf.
jemaflor (74128) 2013-09-09 3:08
Good pov on this beautiful beach and bay, lovely light and good composition with the lonely man, good effect also with these waves.
ChrisJ (91292) 2013-09-09 4:51
Gorgeous coastal scenery withe the tiny speck of the solitary man on the beach underscoring such how small & insignificant we are in the overall scheme of things. King Canute comes to mind here. Natural looking colour with good sharpness and a superb high pov. Tfs!
Sonata11 (31253) 2013-09-09 12:49
Wow! this coastline view is soooo beautiful. I can admire with pleasure. Perfectly well done. Congrats. Awesome !!!
Best regards, Barbara
macjake (45588) 2013-09-09 19:05
what can i say, its a very pleasing and attractive photo!
love the overall clearness, lighting, and exposure levels. but of course the point of view is what makes the composition so nice.
really like it!
fds (6319) 2013-09-10 7:06
ciao gunnar very beautiful beach under the sky from the fantastic quibero
i visit this in august 1996 but i dont visit this summer
also you visit brittany in 2013
mvdisco (17122) 2013-09-10 19:26
Beautiful point of view and composition,
nice tone of colors and light,
A sharp and clear seascape with a nice perpective and details of the wave and nice place...
claudeD (27004) 2013-09-12 1:14
wonderful seaside picture with an excellent composition and fine colors. A shot full of calm and peace. I would like to be there now ...Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
jcpix (6640) 2013-09-14 18:37
A well chosen title for this image, it really puts that idea into perspective. How small and feeble we really area against the forces of nature is greatly perceived here. That poor man wouldn't stand a chance with a rogue wave!? Beautiful, natural colors as seen under the daylight, this looks incredibly pleasing. I really like how you've composed this, the addition of landscape in the bottom right corner of the frame adds a touch of contrast to the other elements in play...giving it a softer touch of sorts. Looks to be somewhat of a secluded beach, well worth a visit! Sharp detail and focus from corner to corner, a fine result. Enjoy the day ahead. Take care.
danos (78144) 2013-09-23 0:39
Good morning Gunnar,
fascinating the view as the presentation of the little sandy beach as crashed from the waves of the sea.The wild rocks make the scene even more effective with the foreground flowers to complete perfect the whole scenery.
Have a good week,Danos

Stranden kanske hade varit vindsurfarens paradis om inte klipporna hade varit så vassa.
fanni (13944) 2013-09-23 12:32
what a beautiful view! excellent composition and POV, especially with the inclusion of that very tiny person on the shore. The title to the photo is perfect, too!
I wish I could touch the water - it feels so real.
UlfE (14142) 2013-09-28 22:57
En fantastiskt fin och välkomponerad landskapsbild. Din bild förmedlar till fullo denna plats skönhet. Jag ser att bilden är tagen i maj och jag kan tänka mig att denna fina lilla strand under de kommande månaderna kryllade av folk. Mannen vid det här tillfället var definitivt en extra bonus. Ha en bra söndag!

Bonjour, cher Günnar,
Face ā l'Océan l'homme mesure sa petitesse ! Trčs belle prise de vue.
