Photographer's Note

The weather was, to be honest, fabulously ordinary on this day in late June, and didn't invite one to get out of the car. But somewhere just to the south of the 'towering' (according to some tourist guides) Menez Hom (highest point in the area at 330 metres; I believe menez means mountain in Breton) I jammed on the brakes half through this tiny Breton village, realising belatedly what I had just seen while the automatic pilot steered the car. I drove back out and parked on the verge of the road and took some shots of this delightful church of Ste Marie while the occasional car rushed past and drops of rain fell. The main road from Chateaulin to Crozon on the Crozon Peninsula splits the village and shortly afterwards one comes to the turn-off to the 'mountain'. Would the views on this dismal day be as splendid as promised?

Looking at the shot now, I imagine some viewers wishing it focused on the church through the gateway. Why I didn't do that I don't know, but having the road in the shot gives me an excuse for the title.
