This month marks the anniversary of Gildasjan 's death which happened on 24th June 2017, and I thought of honoring his memory in posting a picture of beautiful Brittany, which he loved so much.

Gildas lived in Montreuil (Seine-St Denis) , just north of Paris, and he knew how to catch the best shots of this not-always-privileged part of the Parisian suburbs.

However, he was always fond of coming back to his native Brittany (Morbihan) , where he loved the coast as much as inland.

I am from Finistère, west of Morbihan, and I don't have any good pictures of Morbihan, but I am sure Gildas will enjoy this beautiful spot of Finistere which includes both sea and land.

See map : The photo was taken in 2016, at the "Spanish point" in the Crozon Peninsula.
The "Spanish Point", opposite the "Pointe du Portzic" marks the 3rd entrance into the "Brest Roads"
In the distance, you can see the "Pointe du Petit Minou", and the "Pointe st Matthieu", respectively the 2nd and 1st entrance into the roads.

Bonjour Marie Louise,
A beautiful tribute. The view is gorgeous, the purple flowers look wonderful in the shaded field in the foreground and the contrast with the sunlit water is great as well. The sails are seen as some nice white dots in the water.

Salut Marie-Louise,
Une belle vue avec cette côte et ce tapis de fleurs qui apporte de la couleur à ce paysage, bien pris, on se souvient des photos de l'ami Gildas, bel hommage.

Witajcie MarieLouise!
Interesting landscape, curious place.
Good frame, colors and light.
Well done.
Warm regards.

Bonjour, chère Marie-Louise,
Je tiens à te remercier pour ce bel hommage rendu à notre ami commun qu'était Gildas. Il avait du talent, et savait se servir d'un appareil photo. À travers ses photos (la Bretagne, et la ville de Montreuil) il a su magnifier ces lieux avec bonheur.
Merci pour tout y compris cette belle image.

Bravo et belle journée

Nice tribute to our late friend whome we had exchanged critiques only for short time, unfortunately, MarieLouise.
Beautiful point along the Bretagne rocky coast, the added purple flowers with green and blue, view of the bay with boats in white - all culminate wonderfully.
My best regards,

Ciao Marie Louise
che meraviglia questo paesaggio, mi piacerebbe molto tornare al in Bretagna, spero di farlo presto.
Un bellissimo omaggio per Gildas.

Hello Marie-Louise,
A beautiful scenery like this should be a suitable tribute to a member who left us. The heath in the foreground is filled with colourful flowers and other plants, and further back there is an attractive view of the sea and several boats. The photo is well balanced and excellently exposed.
Kind regards,

Dobro vece.
Lep pogled, interesantan i dobar tekst, lepo secanje na Gildas ...
Lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa oblacima koji dolaze.
Lepo polje cveca i zaliv sa jedrenjacima belih jedra.
Lepa fotografija i panorama.
Zelim vam lepu i mirnu noc, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Hello Marie- Louise,

Reply to my picture.
First, the cathedral is never rebuilt, the owner of the new hotel, on the caves of the cathedral his is death two year ago, I had more than 20 year every day contact with the man.
Two, I did know of our friend Gildas, only of TE, thank you very much for his tribute with a picture.

A pleasant soft contrast picture too.
Nice panoramic image
Colours and sharpness are fantastic.
Composition and presentation are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Hi Marie Louise
Very appropriate tribute. Gildas would have like this photo.
Best wishes

Hello Marie Louise,
nice your contribution to the tribute of Gildasjan with this beautiful scene from Bretagne.I like the lot of flowers that cover the rocks lead-in the eyes on the end of them,contiguous on the far of the horizon.

Warm regards,Danos

Bonjour Marie-Louise,

Un paysage qui est reposant et relaxant où les couleurs des fleurs contrastent bien avec l'eau de la mer. Bonne journée.


Ciao Maria Luigia, gran bel panorama, magnifica la distesa di fiori in primo piano, fantastici colori e splendida luce, brava, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Marie-Louise
Merci pour cette jolie note et cette image en hommage a notre ami Gildas, un paysage Breton qu'il aurait apprécier ...….
joli avant plan fleuris, la vue sur la mer et les petits bateaux, belle image

Hi MarieLouise
yes, a fine tribute indeed. Very thoughtful of you, i'm sure he will appreciate it :)

its a lovely and peaceful scene you've captured, light and shade, bright and dark colours. sweet.

Hola Marie-Louise.
Preciosa este paisaje junto al mar, ideal estas verdes costas salpicadas por este tapiz de flores moradas que dan un precioso cromatismo, con el azul del mar al fondo.
Buena nitidez, iluminación y color.
Bello trabajo. Me gusta mucho.
Que tengas un buen día.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Hola, Marie-Loiuse!

Es un maravilloso homenaje a Gildas, una vista interesante de esa vegetación colorida en el suelo con el mar destacándose al fondo, una imagen que transmite mucha paz y que por cierto la disfrutará él de donde esté ahora. Excelente trabajo!

Nice landscape with the violet colors in the fields contrasting with the sea. And today, congratulations to the champions of the world! Vive le France!

Bonjour Marie Louise,

An attractive part of Bretagne that would not look out of place in Provence, famous for its purple lavender fields. Always sad to see a member leave TE for what ever reason. I like the distant yachts. Tfs!

Bonjour MarieLouise, composition très bonne et intéressante avec la vue de ce beau paysage, très bien capturé dans cette belle image, avec une bonne netteté, de la lumière, de la couleur et de la qualité. Très bon et intéressant travail parfaitement fait, mes félicitations mon ami. Merci de partager ce beau travail.

Bonjour et bon dimanche.
Meilleurs voeux du sud de l'Espagne.

Hello MarieLouise,
Although I never got the pleasure of interacting with Gildasjan, I am so sorry to hear of his passing. This is a very fine tribute to him. 👏

Bonjour Marie Louise Je suis convaincu que l'esprit de Gildas s'abreuvera longtemps de la fraîcheur de cette parcelle de Bretagne en voletant au gré du vent au-dessus de ce magnifique paysage côtier. Amicalement
