Photographer's Note

View on Trévignon castle (also sometimes called Arthaud castle) from a small cove close to Trévignon port in Trégunc, on the south coast of Finistère department. This castle was first a small fort built probably at Vauban time to keep Concarneau bay. There was a similar fort on Beg Meil point in Fouesnant, on the other side of the bay. In 1895 the fort was sold to doctor Arthaud, from Paris Natural History museum. He added a scottish style castle to the building and dreamt about building a laboratory there. During World War II, the castle was destroyed by Nazis as they retired in Lorient. It was rebuilt the same in 1950. Today it is a private property.

Photo taken a few minutes before sunset this summer. A few post processing in Photoshop Elements to make the horizon line horizontal and to correct levels.
