Le phare du Créac'h a été construit en 1863. Haut de 47 mètres, c’est le plus puissant d'Europe. Ses deux lanternes superposées émettent un signal lumineux de huit faisceaux d’une portée de 60 kilomètres. Il éclaire la route de tous les porte-containers en provenance d’Asie et d’Afrique, qui se dirigent vers les grands ports du Nord de l’Europe en empruntant ce que l’on appelle « Le rail d’Ouessant ».
La nuit, c’est très impressionnant de se trouver au pied du phare : on est comme enveloppé par les puissants faisceaux colorés qui balaient l’obscurité.

The Créac'h lighthouse was built in 1863. 47 meters high, it is the most powerful in Europe. Its two stacked lanterns emit a light signal of eight beams with a range of 60 kilometers. It illuminates the route of all container ships from Asia and Africa, which head to the major ports of Northern Europe using what is known as the « Rail d’Ouessant » (Ouessant’s way).
At night, it is very impressive to be at the foot of the lighthouse: one is as if enveloped by the powerful colored beams that sweep the darkness.

Best viewed in original size.

Nice point of view the light house is beautiful and the evening light is soft and inviting.
Nice rock formations with the waves coming on shore.

The water looks so amazing and is a nice contrast to the sky!

with that range the beams may be visible from Penzance...rewarding to view the lighthouse in the context of coast and wild seawater..

Beautiful capture, with outstanding framing and colors.
Neil Marcus12-May-2020 14:46
So long as that light also keeps ships away from the rocky and wild sea. This shows the whole situation. "VV"
