Photographer's Note

This year's cycling holiday took us to the Baie de Somme area (full cycling holiday journal and pictures at if you want to see more), which prompted a trip to Le Treport on our first full day in the region.

The walk to the lighthouse demanded a picture, and I think that the result delivered a number of interesting elements: geometry, perspective, a hint of trompe l'oeil (caused by the foreground figure both stealing the eye away from and pushing the eye towards the lighthouse) and a softening of the scene from the clouds.

Le Treport is an unassuming and relaxing seaside resort with a wealth of sea-food restaurants. Worthy of a visit, especially around lunchtime!
