You have a good eye, Lucy.
Thank you Bruce. This is really just a keeping things-ticking-over kind of post!
Lucy, what is the name of those tall spikes of purple? I've never seen those before.You do, indeed, have a good eye, much to your readers' pleasure.
Hi Martha, and thanks. The tall spikes are called echiums, they're a Brittany speciality, in the very sheltered coastal places like this which catch the best of the Gulf Stream, the Ile de Bréhat is particularly noted for them. It seems they're native to the Canary Isles, so they are very southern things really. They can grow up to 3 metres - ten feet - tall.
Lucy, tell me something about this clear water covering still life.Or, is my mind creating it?
Hi Ellena,Its a rock pool. If you photograph them in shadow (then also maybe increase the contrast levels on the photo!) they look like that. We were waiting for the boat at a small gare maritime to go and watch seabirds; Tom sat on a bench and I clambered about on the rocks. There were also some sea kayak cabins and some fairly posh hotels and villas with gardens dropping down to the shore.
