NdlR: this image, very famous to date, was one of the star photos of the 2000s, but we tried to propose here new quality declinations.
"This evening of August, the weather is conducive to beautiful landscape photos. An exit at sea is essential. And when I see the orange sails of an old rig, I go to meet him. Some photos taken from the boat, Forban du Bono does not go to a port ready but directly to the entrance of the Gulf. The current goes down and therefore is contrary to its path. The secrets of the currents at the entrance to Port Navalo indicate that one must stick to the coast to fetch the countercurrent. It is then enough to stand in the middle of the current, engine engages and wait for the boat to pass. The point, the lighthouse, the loaded sky and the traditional sailboat: everything is said. We can go in ...
Forban du Bono is a typical boat of the Gulf of Morbihan. This summer evening the sky is loaded after a Brittany gust of wind (even in summer). Unlike the Sinagot that remained in the Gulf to transport oysters and charges between the ports, the forban is more clothed and was responsible for crossing the bay of Quiberon where the winds and the sea could be more capricious.
