Photographer's Note

Sunday 30th August is actually my 3rd anniversary on TE, but I won't have much time to edit a new post, so I am doing it a little bit in advance!
What can I say about this event? That I hope there will be many more anniversaries, because it's a really enjoyable site with all the convivial atmosphere enhanced by beautiful illustrations! Many thanks to all of you!

7 am, August 14th 2008, we got up early to catch the morning ferry that would take us from Roscoff Brittany to Plymouth England. As usual, we have to join in the queue of cars, before we can enter the big belly of the ship! Just as we were waiting, this SUNRISE caught my eye, and I couldn't resist taking a photo. It makes a change from the more usual sunsets!

Between the cranes and the seagulls is the silhouette of the ship's chimney!

"Bloscon" deep-water port in Roscoff, north Finistère was constructed between 1970-72. Before that, there was nothing but a wild coast.
The port and the company "Brittany Ferries" deal with a great part of trans-Channel traffic to Great Britain and Ireland.
The ferries carry many passengers of course, as well as all sorts of goods, especially vegetables coming from the nearby region "Léon": Artichokes, cauliflowers, onions, chalottes, tomatoes....
