Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Côte de Granit Rose or Pink Granite Coast is a stretch of coastline in the Côtes d'Armor departement of northern Brittany, France. It stretches for more than thirty kilometres from Plestin-les-Grèves to Louannec, encompassing Trégastel. It has become a popular tourist destination due to its unusually pink sands and rock formations. This type of pink rock can only be found in two other places in the world, Corsica and China.(Wikipedia).

Ciao Alexia,Grazie per il Tuo bel commento, purtroppo la primavera si fa ancora desiderare ... in questo momentosto sto ascoltando una canzone e guardando questo bellissimo mare, con la sua forza misteriosa e indomabile,le onde che corrono verso la riva, si schiantano sulle rocce rosa, diventano schiuma bianca e si ritirano dolcemente, per ricominciare,Ti auguro Una Buona Domenica. Stefano

Perfect exposure timing, enough to give that gorgeous silky effect to the wave, I like your title too. The colour in the rocks really brings out the hues in the waves :) L&F Best wishes, Lee

Hi my love ♥Genevieve♥,

Hi Genevieve, looks like you had a great little vacation. We each have such wonderful scenery close to us. thanks for sharing this wonderful photo. I love how the slower shutter speed captures the movement of the water and the waves, that with the beautiful color in the rocks of the coastline are extremely beautiful. All the Best, have a great week, Greg.
