A sunny but quite chilly day somewhere along the Côte Sauvage. This part of the "wild coast" is not so dramatic as most other parts. We were walking to Portivy, for a Sunday lunch.

A cool brisk walk is always a good precursor to a big Sunday lunch!
You have captured some lovely f/g textures in the shape of grasses, fence, dunes and rocks, which are all integral to the mood. The group of figures carries the action along and, of course, there is evidence of red clothing!!
I wonder, should the place have been Pontivy?
Have a great day,

lovely view of the rocky beach with the charming foreground. Fine colors and clarity with the group of people well positioned. Lovely details captured on the rocks. Thanks for sharing and have a great new day.

very ice seascape scenery with the clarity and the sharpness of the scene to are enhanced from the vivid light and colours of the day.Excellent presentation with the beauty of the place to be superb.

This is a delightful shot, taken in glorious sunshine though the weather, as you say, does still look somewhat chilly.
The inclusion of the rough fence running diagonally across the foreground adds well to the composition and the line of the fence is mimicked by the row of rocks on the beach and even by the rocky outcrop beyond. But, as with so many of your photographs, the inclusion of the little group of people walking on the beach is a very fine addition: they add interest, a sense of scale and they are perfectly placed in the view. And all beneath a glorious blue sky.
Gorgeous light and colours, fine composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

a splendid view with spectacular composition and romantic details, great colours and lights, superb place to relaxation,

I wonder what this beach looks like now after all the winter storms? Any way, this is a most pleasant reminder of sunnier times. A well exposed image that perfectly suits the square format you have chosen. The people on the beach bring the scene to life and I like the touch of graphism offered by the foreground fence. Light, colours and sharpness are all more than acceptable.

This are the most beautiful places for to make a good stroll, through the dunes, this for a fresh nose.
French coast is not everywhere so lovely as here on these place

Subhogen (4065) 2014-03-11 3:36
Beautiful view from the sea side. Very well framed with the fence and the tall grass in the FG. I like the different shades of blue in the sea and the sky. Nice light has aided a lot to bright out the bright colours. The group of visitors breathes life to the scene. Excellent composition. Thanks for sharing.
holmertz (40983) 2014-03-11 3:59
En mycket fin bild med trivsam atmosfär, inte minst tack vare personerna nere på stranden. Ljuset och färgerna är kanske bildens allra största behållning, men ett antal diagonaler ger bra balans åt kompositionen. Det slitna grå planket gör sig väldigt bra i förgrunden.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-11 4:26
so many lovely details in this composition! The wooden fence provides very good foreground and leads and eye towards the rocks. The structure of teh beach is very interesting: it a mix of sand, rocks and smooth pebbles. The group of the people gives the scene sense of the proportion and adds some color, too.

Une bonne prise de la côte sauvage bretonne. C'est net, précis et bien réalisé.
Amitiés et bonne journée.
Sergiom (59986) 2014-03-11 5:39
J'aime beaucoup le point de vue derrière cette clôture . C'est un genre de démarcation entre la plage et le photographe. La petite famille nous laisse découvrir un très beau paysage à l'arrière plan.

Hello Gunnar. My compliments for this beautiful and evocative photo. Best composition and very pleasant colors. I would love to walk with the people.

un bon POV avec une belle profondeur d'image et une succession de plans intéressants. La lumière et les couleurs mettent en valeur ce beau paysage et créent une belle ambiance.
adramad (37997) 2014-03-11 10:00
Wonderful composition of this impressive rocky spur by the sea, the golden sand beach and rocks that we see round behind, are a good item at the midpoint, to complete the splendid scene, these reeds and wooden palisade adorn much in the foreground.
Delightful beautiful colors.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.
rbassin (18183) 2014-03-11 12:07

PaulVDV (22099) 2014-03-11 12:16
Not dramatic but still very beautiful and a very good coastline for hiking.
Your composition is excellent and with the dune grass and the closure you provided the picture with a very attractive foreground.
Excellent sharpness and colours.
Best regards, Paul

Härlig klippa som skyddar sandstranden, liknar förresten Björnshuvudet på Tjörn.
ourania (30937) 2014-03-11 14:04
this is a very delightful place for a walk, there are lovely elements, textures and colours to look at and enjoy. The sunshine and the colours are invigorating but there's also a wonderful feeling of peacefulness and relaxation. Your point of view and composition include successive layers of interest and you have balanced them skillfully. It's easy to understand the people's appreciation of the place and the sunshine. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
mesutilgim (84284) 2014-03-11 14:05
Hello dear Gunnar,
Another topclass capture in your gallery.
Very good layout.
The fences in the foreground creates a perfect effect.
TFS and best regards
photoray (12155) 2014-03-11 17:52
Interesting composition with the foreground of tall grasses surrounding the wood fence, boulder strewn beach, and the rock bluff jutting into the ocean, where I would enjoy sitting and relaxing.
Thanks for sharing,
elenimavrandoni (14249) 2014-03-11 19:53

a wonderful image of the coast with great clarity and sharpness,the colors are natural and the light management very good as well,
the human inclusion in frame makes the composition still more better and friendlier,

Lep pogled na divlju plazu i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazana plaza sa stenama i trenutak sa posetiocima, lepe boje.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Lepo mesto za setnju.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.
Nice view on the wild beach and a moment ...
Good time recording, sharpness and contrast, well demonstrated beach with rocks and a moment with the visitors, beautiful colors.

Nice place for a stroll.
Nice afternoon and all the best.

Ces paqlissades de bois dans les herbes quelel vue avec la plage cet effet de grèpahsime et le rocher blanc sur le salbe et cette falaise en fond quel ensemble de rêve.
Bravo et amitié
Graal (97455) 2014-03-12 8:05
pleasant view of group during the walk on the wild beach. Interesting forms of rock and row of stones. Fine light you had. "Jaap" format I like, too.
Have a nice evening.
ikeharel (57144) 2014-03-12 9:45
Good evening Gunnar,
Interesting rocks formation, work of sea and winds for millions of years. Fine shown under the bright daylight with clear view of the carved and grooved stones.
There are a number of round, oval ball shaped small rocks, different texture altogether some 20m from the wateredge - a men made pile or wonder of nature?
Well applied with the wooden fence and green veg. in FG, added good DOF on.
eldancer1 (27855) 2014-03-12 15:16
This beach scene look so much like a Southern California beach. Good pov I like the inclusion of the fence and the grass. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
mcmtanyel (13407) 2014-03-12 16:48
Bring it on, I am ready for the beach scene. I like the layered composition you employed.
mirosu (13756) 2014-03-13 3:25
Superb photo. The perfectly lighted rocks are the main focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground wooden fence and the high grass as well as the rock and blue sea water in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The people on the beach add nice life to the scene. The overall impact is very strong.
Very well done.
abmdsudi (43480) 2014-03-13 5:32
A breath taking coastal scape seen from the best view point in rich saturated colours and great clarity. The brightly coloured people just pop up so stunningly
in the setting liven the overall shot and inclusion of attractive foreground extends the feel of depth and scale. A fine shot so well taken, Congrats
cornejo (31472) 2014-03-13 11:43

Nice scene, with all the family walking along the sand beach ! Good viewpoint, I find the barrier well placed frontside, great light too, congratulations !
Have a nice week-end,
kato (11630) 2014-03-14 19:00
You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beach with huge rock and foreground with the grass and fence. It's impressive in blue contrast of sea and sky. So it's a peaceful spectacle. And the people walking the beach draws out an additional good impact.
bukitgolfb301 (35908) 2014-03-15 16:36
Hi dear Gunnar, how are you? Sorry for my late reply as so busy weekday.

a beautiful view. Great composition with sharp detail of throughout the frame. Superb clarity and nice colours. Excellent shot. Tfs.
boa (6021) 2014-03-16 13:42
fin plats för en strandpromenad, inte mycket folk heller. Annat är det väl på sommaren..Snyggt komponerad bild med flera lager, gräs, staket, sten, sand o klippor vilket ger ett bra djup. Fin skärpa och färger.
papagolf21 (86138) 2014-03-17 1:11
Bonjour, cher Gunnar,
Ces petites plages bretonnes bénéficient d'une beauté toute particulière.
Félicitations pour cette prise de vue qui rend bien compte des plages régionales.

Hello Gunnar ,
This is a beautiful wild beach of Quiberon . And you have superbely composed the picture in this square format . Exquisite sharpness , natural colors , and interesting presence of the walkers .
COSTANTINO (55452) 2014-03-17 8:01
splendid from this spectacular view of the beach
great lightness and sharpness
excellent chosen point of view showing
the beauty of this impressive foreground
shot divorsed into three parties
the first one with amazing blue sky
the rocks of the beach and the greenery
in the foreground
have a nice evening
pierrefonds (56963) 2014-03-17 18:20
The distance between the beach and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails, the colours of the beach and of the cliff. The good luminosity is makinf the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.
macjake (56494) 2014-03-19 11:00
this looks like the type of place our dear friend Lisa would enjoy to take photos at :)
despite the landscape, there's a calmness and quietness to the overall scene.
you captured that well.
a fine family moment too.
fritzi007 (5308) 2014-03-20 12:43
sehr schöne Küstenlandschaft, sehr gute Bildqualität, gratuliere!
mkamionka (30618) 2014-03-24 7:43
beautiful beach scenery. I like the multiple layers of composition with the two fences adding further layers in the foreground.
The beach seems to have it all nice stretch of sand and interesting rock formations.
You have captured it in pleasant natural colors.
gildasjan (41582) 2014-03-25 12:13
J'aime beaucoup Quiberon puisque j'ai réalisé beaucoup d'image sur cette presqu'ile de la Bretagne.Ici un beau carré bien bien composé de cet endroit de Saint-Pierre-Quiberon.J'ai toujours du plaisir à regarder des images de la côte sauvage.
worldcitizen (6965) 2014-03-26 20:24
The colors in this scene are beautiful, and there are many interesting elements that combine to create a great view. I like the grass and fence in the foreground, and the large rocks on the shore. The people seem to be enjoying a nice stroll, and you caught them at the perfect spot, in between the white rocks and large rocky outcrop. Beautiful beaches are relaxing and inspirational at the same time.
dkmurphys (49254) 2014-03-27 1:58
Superb capture from the sea side. A genuine Bretagne image, well taken.
Enjoy a fine spring day!
ChrisJ (97854) 2014-03-29 4:20
I like the multiple overlapping layers here of 8 distinct planes: grass, wood fence, dune, stones, beach, black cliff, sea then sky. The people walking on the shore add scale and animate the scene. Good sharpness and nice warm cold color contrasts between pale yellow and sky blue and sea. Tfs!
Didi (56851) 2014-04-09 9:09
Humanoïd presence gives us an idea about the scale
Very good point of view, a good place to make panoramic picture
I hope you did not miss Belle Ille en Mer
tatadalou (6081) 2014-05-04 1:54
A beautiful place to walk and take some good breath of fresh air ! Nice sweet colours. The family completes the photo.
Robert1969 (7026) 2014-05-08 23:32
Very nice surrounding. The picture has nice warm
and bright colors. It's taken from a good point
of view. Light management and the composition are
clic (14906) 2014-05-20 13:43
Four layers of interest provide much depth to this lovely coastal environment that appears quite conducive to a saxophone-alps horn duet performed on the beach, the large boulder at mid-plane bouncing back all the harmonics!
fds (8280) 2014-05-25 2:08
dear gunner another very nice picture from the sud britanny
i viit the quiberon coast on 1996 summer fantastic place
NorthernLight (2301) 2014-09-24 2:27
en mycket vacker bild av en mycket intressant och vackert landskap. Allt passar ihop. Stängslet i förgrunden, sanden, stenarna, klipporna och människorna i mellan. Vackra färger.
Sammantaget mycket trevligt, Gunnar.
