Photographer's Note

Nets drying on the quayside, Saint-Guénolé (Breton: Gwenole), Finistère, Brittany.
Saint Guénolé is the main fishing port of the Penmarc'h Commune, itself the southwesternmost township of Pays Bigouden. The harbour of Saint-Guénolé has a entrance channel opening due west, pretty dangerous in rough weather. It is protected by two granite peninsulas : Krugen in the South, and Conq in the northwest. Krugen is connected to the mainland by a sandy isthmus; Conq is connected to the shore by an artificial embankment itself protected by concrete blocks to better break the waves. The rocky granite coast is called the "Côte Sauvage" in St. Guénolé. Yet once in the harbour, all is serene.
