Photographer's Note

-------- CAP FREHEL --------
Legendary site and bird reserve, overlooking a sea blue stained emerald, Cap Fréhel offers a spectacle which never tires.
The Cape Freels, a wonder of nature, is one of the most impressive of Brittany with cliffs overlooking the sea at 70 meters.
Around the Cape is a wonderful promenade between the heather and gorse
It stretches from the tip of Grouin in the east to the island of Brehat in the West. On a clear day the Channel Islands are sometimes visible.
To the right of course, stands the famous silhouette of the fort Latte : not present on the photo.
The old lighthouse, or Vauban Tower, was built in granite under Louis XIV, both Simon Garangeau. He worked primarily on coal, then with slats to lampposts that burned in fish oil.
The current lighthouse, which the fire door to 110 km, overlooking the sea at 103 meters was built in 1950
Top of its 145 steps dominates on the tip of Paîmpol (to the west) to the Groin (east).
At night, it is even possible to see the radiance of the Corbiere lighthouse at the southwest corner of Jersey, 50 km wide.
