Les Tonnerres de Brest 2012
Pendant une semaine le Port de Brest a accueilli plus de 900 bateaux de différents pays pour les Fêtes Maritimes des Tonnerres de Brest qui ont lieu tous les 4 ans.
Brest est ma ville natale .
Après la parade vers Douarnenez ,le dernier jour , un voilier passe au large de Lampaul-Plouarzel au soleil couchant .

Brest Maritime Festival
Every four year the harbour in Brest welcomes about 950 boats from all around the world .
For one week Brest is transformed into the biggest port of the world.
Hundred-year-old sailing boats and other remarkable vessels.
Musical performances and the backdrop of villages draped in the colours of the world.
Brest is my home town .

This is one of the finest seascapes I have ever seen. Between the size of the sun and the romance of the vessel you have a marvelous image. Hang it in a gallery. How fortunate you are to live in Brest and have ample opportunity to photograph scenes like thisl.

Congratulations on your Home City a wonderful event. That picture is truly stunning. It seems a little unreal, but as I said, it's really amazing.

25 Jul 2012 7:55pm

@Jypyä Pop: Thank you . It was magic. I had to wait for this photo so that the ship and the sun are on the good place. But the sailboat navigated slowly and the sun came down and behind clouds. I have photos before, the sailboat in a pink sky,and also later, everything is blue: it is the one who appears to me to give the magic!
