The Pointe de Séhar is one of my favorite places , so that you must not be surprised to see me on this shot, yes me, the man with a red K-Way.Generally the presence of a man (or a woman) gives a good idea of the relief which surrounds him (or her, of course),so that you may be impresed by the height of these rockss and even of the difficulty I have to climb them.I must add, that, in french the word "Pointe",speaking about relief, means as well a mountain you would call a peak, or a piece of land spreading in the sea.To be honest, here it is rather that second meaning ,and you will see in ws what could light the way for a better understanding.

Fore more understanding I think it is better that I copy here the last part of my answer to Andate:
"The reality is that when I shall reach the summit in a few hours , I shall be unable to come down back,because I shall throw my ropes, and will stay there to face the light for ever."

salve henri
mi dispiace ma questa foto potrebbe essere considerata una forma astratta di arte ma come fotografia la vedo parecchio male.
Avrei forse preso uno scatto e composizione laterale e non con il sole centrale come in questa e poi la luce è veramente troppo farte e oscura tutta la montagna
Mi dispiace ma non mi piace affatto

Hi Henri,
This is a good PoV for this shot, having the sun high up in the sky has given a good silhouette of the rocks but as you say the presence of a figure gives a good idea of scale. TFS

Hi Henri,
What a superb minimalistic capture vith nice POV,colours, light and excellent compo..TFS.


Hi MF Henri

Stunning scene capture of this point summit from nice POV with delightful composition.
TFS and have a nice day!


Salut Henri,
excellent point de vue. Le Massif Armoricain est bien une sacrée montagne, et même une montagne sacrée!
Bien vu.
Amicalement, et bonne ascension.

TocTocToc...hey Henri... que se passe-t-il ???
je viens voir ta galerie histoire de trouver une photo où je pourrais t'embêter un peu... et au final je vois que tu t'es laissé bouffer par cette p*** d'ambiance qui règne sur ce site !!!!
AH NON !!!! j'en ai plus que ras le bol de voir partir tous mes copains !!!!!!!!
dis, si tu lis ça... tu me laisses un petit message car je ne peux pas te contacter autrement...
et puis tiens, moi je te donne 2 pts puisque ici plus rien n'a de sens ni de valeur
donne moi un petit signe parce que je commence à déprimer de voir tous les frenchis se tirer !... et puis il faut qu'on se mette au point pour notre rencontre d'avril 2010 !!!!

hi Henri,
this is an interesting shot, you in red climbing up the cliff adds much to the photo :-)..i think you could crop a bit on the left, for you could see an edge rising up, that is kind of distracting.

looks really tough from here.. you look so so small and nothing more i love than an honest confession :-). take care.


Bonjour Henri.
Une image spectaculaire est bien composée avec cet alpiniste qui donne la mesure au volume de la montagne.
Un contre-jour parfaitement réussi.
Bonne journée.

Bonsoir Henri,
Joli! le truquage! On croirait vraiment qu'une montagne de l'Himalaya a atterri à Locquémeau!
Ce rocher avec le soleil juste au dessus n'en parait que plus majestueux.

Bonsoir Henri!
Nice picture.
Wonderful lighting. Perfect framing.
I like very much the little red man :-))
Well done.
Ciao! Vanda

This is a great capture, and I like it most because of its great scale which could able to flash here with a person wearing red jacket trying to climb these peaks, Henri!

Great sharpness and the shot taken against a sun was a good idea, I feel. The colors are natural and well shown in your work.

Very well seen!

best regards,

Hi Henri,

Bonsoir Henri,

Magnifique image. Très joueur de Nice, l'original, je pourrais dire. Grimpeur est très bon et frummos mettre en évidence.

Excelente imagen de esta impresionante montaña y el alpinista que nos muestra lo inmenso de la naturaleza y lo pequeño que es el ser humano
Buen trabajo
un saludo

Very nice presentation Henri.
Best regards.

Olá Henri
