Cap Fréhel

Lighthouse at Cap Fréhel, Brittany, France

Cap Fréhel

A long exposure photograph of “Cap Fréhel“, a famous cape (and lighthouse) in France. There are  a lot of people in this image, but all most of them are invisible because of the use of long exposure time. If you look carefully you can still see some “ghosts” near the right edge of the photo, just right to the old 17th century lighthouse.

Most of the time I use shorter focal lengths, or even extreme wide angle lenses, but this one was done using a 70-300mm zoom lens. I couldn’t get a nice viewpoint closer to the lighthouse and I wanted to enhance the clouds behind the building. The “compression effect” when using a longer focal length accomplished this very well.
