The people here are walking along the "wild side" of the Quiberon peninsula, in French "la Côte Sauvage".
The sun was shining but the wind was strong and cold.
The sea is just outside the picture here but you can see some views, taken on the same occasion as workshops.

Your picture is very active through the presently of the peoples.
Lovely composition excellent captured with nice depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

The two people in red make an excellent starting point before the eyes go on to take in the rest of the scene. Something helped by the winding path, which is an invitation to step in and join the walkers. Clever use of the square format here to concentrate on 'the action'. Superb technical presentation.

You have given us a fine trio of photographs here. The two workshop pictures put the whole area into context perfectly but your main picture is, of course, the most artistic of the three.
As always, you have produced an excellent composition here in which the curving pathway, the fences on either side of it and the colourfully dressed walkers all help to lead the viewer into the scene to the distant view beneath a glorious sky. Not only that, but the two people nearest to the camera are peering over the cliffs to the right - another feature which directs our view over the rocks there too.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness which, of course, are so much better seen at larger size on "beta" TE.

nice trail, good colors and p.o.v.

Belle prise de vue de ce sentier bordé d'une clôture qui donne de la profondeur ā l'image. La présence des personnes ajoute ā la composition. Belles couleurs. Salutations.

A bracing day for a walk along this well maintained pathway Gunnar and despite the sun we see the walkers well wrapped up to keep out the cold. I like the way the path meanders through the shot and the picket fence is casting some lovely shadows along its length. The red coats make a fine contrast to the natural colours of the landscape. Excellent quality shot and the 2 WS's explain exactly what the couple are looking at. TFS and warm regards Rosemary

It's not the Grand Canyon but one has to be careful when walking by some dangerous rocks. Looks like a beautiful day to be walking about. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

I like colors and light.
Wonderful view and place.
Have a nice afternoon

Technically perfect photo, excellent composition, very nice scene and beautiful scenery, compliments Ryszard

Man behöver ju strängt taget inte se havet när man har en så här fint slingrande grusväg, en grön hed och en mäktig molbank, lagom utplacerade människor och röda jackor att titta på. Färgerna är vackra och ljuset perfekt och hel visst fick ni en rejäl dos av frisk luft den dagen.

proprio questa mattina stavo studiando gli itinerari della Bretagna, non so ancora quando andrō, ma nel frattempo cerco di prepararmi, grazie anche alle foto dei membri TE.
photoray (6700) 2013-10-20 19:28
Interesting composition to show the visitors strolling along the pathway rather than the ocean scenery.
And I can imagine it is cold even though the sun is out, for the distant cumulus clouds.
elenimavrandoni (9965) 2013-10-20 20:26
Hello Gunnar, I really like the landscape and the open horizon, beautiful colors and clean air atmosphere!! well done!!
papagolf21 (79598) 2013-10-21 4:15
Bonjour, cher Günnar,
Le chemin qui serpente ā travers ce paysage sauvage est de toute beauté.
La présence de personnages avec des taches de couleur accentue la beauté d'ensemble.

Late afternoon, lovely clouds, deep blue sky, clear atmosphere, vibrant land, fine for all walks of life and that's summer time, this shot is to remind us of what the season should be like. Beautifully conceived as well as a good traditional landscape taking the image from slightly lower down on to the horizon, it's an eye catching yet simple composition with attractive colours and good use of that splash of red. People presence always make the shot and liven the atmosphere really well. Very well done shot, Congrats. TFS
Kielia (21533) 2013-10-21 7:38
your POV on this well known coast works very well. The composition is really successful and how lucky you were with two persons wearing red jackets! My compliments!
mesutilgim (73080) 2013-10-21 8:11
Hello dear Gunnar,
Nice capture of this nature trekkers with good pov.
Amaing the shadows of the fences at right side.
TFS and best regards
annjackman (15581) 2013-10-21 10:20
The path has made a very good lead into the picture. I like the crisp freshness of the image with the red jackets standing out. There are also lovely shadows of the fence.
ourania (18738) 2013-10-21 12:45
this time there are people walking to the opposite direction too:) I like very much the interest, reference, vividness and scale the people bring to this lovely view. A walk along this trail must be invigorating and rewarding, the light and the colours in this frame are marvellous and, apart from them, the people are enjoying the great seascape and the sound of the waves. The depth and perspective of your photo are superb and urge us to join the walkers. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Romano46 (11607) 2013-10-22 4:41
la doppia curva che compie il viale č al centro della composizione e aiuta a movimentarla anche con il supporto della pčresenza dei visitatori che anzichč disturbare in questo caso aggiungono una nota piacevole con la loro presenza e gli abiti dai colori vistosi.
Bel soggetto con una illuminazione che vivacizza l'ambiente e nitidezza eccellente conytribuiscono al successo della foto.
Ciao e buona giornata
bayno (18338) 2013-10-22 9:33
very very beautiful, I really like the light and fabulous details, even the title is fun with a reliable reference to the song by Lou Reed, beautiful color rendering...excellent work...
Graal (92190) 2013-10-22 10:09
unusual show of wild nature on the sea coast. Good 3 shots. Interesting result of your walk. Pictures are perfect done. Nice presentation.
Have a nice evening.
macjake (45588) 2013-10-22 12:03
I like the WS photo's too, they give a good sense of the overall view and area.
funny that you say its really cold here because it looks warm because of the brightness and colors.
excellent exposure too.
larsy (28) 2013-10-25 4:18
Kul med en gångväg som går utefter havet. Jag kan gissa att utsikten över havet är ganska fin.
jemaflor (74128) 2013-10-26 1:19
A pleasant trail i suppose, interesting view with these curves and the nice light, good effect too with people and colored clothes.
ChrisJ (91292) 2013-10-26 23:56
The people ın red jackets contrast superbly against the blue sky. İ like the s shaped walking path because it provides superb lead ın lines. The sidelight from the right has added graphism wıth the shadows. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!
mcmtanyel (5321) 2013-10-27 21:25
I like the meandering footpath and the green ground as far as the eye can see. Those red wind breakers are a welcome variety of color.
Didi (51341) 2013-10-28 9:56
Very good lights ambiance on this wild place
I would like to follow the path one day
Good frame quality
Royaldevon (21523) 2013-10-31 2:12
Oh, I like this! It has the sinuous curves of snake as it leads around the frame. You have perfectly controlled the route that viewers will take. Of course, the red coated individuals (did you wait patiently for them?) increase the attention! You have achieved a great sense perspective and there are little details, like the fence shadows and the couple peering out to sea, that help give additional interest.
Have a lovely day,

Den här slags bilden verkligen ditt varumärke. En vindlande väg eller stig som börjar i de båda nedre hörnen och några klarröda jackor eller tröjor blir alltid en bra bild. Den fina vädret och milda ljuset gör den knappast sämre. Ha en bra kväll!
