Camaret-sur-Mer is a small fisher town at one of the tips of presqu’île Crozon, the peninsula south of Brest. It is known for its tour Vauban, on of the many fortification towers built by Vauban all over France.

The north coast of the peninsula has strategic importance since long time as it controls the access to the bay of Brest. However in charming Camaret the innocent tourist does not feel anything of this.

At this time of the year much more obvious is the richness of flora and the beauty and awesome nature with breathtaking views. The path along the coast is a treat for the eyes and as a photographer I progressed only slowly as I had to take many pictures.

First the flora – I enjoyed in particular the complementary colors of yellow and the turquoise of the sea. Splendid.

Then some history: one cannot escape it and the German fortification build for eternity. Nowadays it is a museum. The weather was too good to go inside.

And finally back to nature: a highlight are the Tas de Pois, the pile of peas. A splendid view – unfortunately quite crowded as a parking lot is close and buses drop their loads off.

I worked and lived in Baku in Azerbaijan since September 2012 and started the blog "Life in Baku". End of August 2015 I moved to Rennes in France and started the Blog “Life in Rennes”. I did not know where it will lead to. At the beginning I had the ambition of a 365 days projects - it lasted for about 100 days with the focus on Rennes. With winter coming the opportunities to take pictures decreased dramatically. After a break I resumed the blog and the focus shifted more to Brittany. I love excursions in the region and the blog is now very much about the region of Brittany (including Rennes), its beauty and diversity regarding landscape, culture and food. I hope you enjoy it.
