If some of you like lighthouses and wroth water :

Kéréon lighthouse. Nicknamed the Hell by its gardians. It is totally lost and alone between the island of Ouessant at the West-North-West and Sein at its South-East.

La Jument once again, in a typical and pretty "calm" water for the season. The lighthouse is located West of Ouessant, directly in the famous Fromveur passage where one of the most strong tidal race (9 knots) in the world is.

The Fromveur tidal race is easily recognizable here. The day we took this picture the wind was around 25-30 kt East, so in case of an engine failure we decided to fly at 7500 ft. Just enough to join the airfield or at worst to land in the calm bay were a lot of boats are mooring.

The other lighthouse visible on the left is named Nividic

The whole view of Ouessant from our terrible lovely Robin DR-400/120 under overpowered flying tissue. The tidal race also is visible here with all its "spirals".

The South-West natural bay which always makes me think about a meteor crater... but one of the island spots where the sea is the most calm and hot... around 14°C/57°F max during the summer, really cool.

Eastern view of Ouessant, with the airfield perfectly visible.

National Day, August 9th in Singapore

Watched the fireworks from a 2nd storey bar and spent the night on the dance floors nearby.

@pandoras kitten nice image, did you have a real camera with you? It's quite good for a phone in the dark, if not.

I should take one of these every day (I took this 30 minutes ago or so)...

There was lightning on the left, and if I turned around a few minutes before this... a rainbow.

Absolutely beautiful. With the kids and the sole adult walking on the dune I felt like we were in Mad Max 3.

The 5 people closest are my son and daughter, and my friend's 2 kids (the dad's took them camping here).

I always feel like I'm in Dune once I cross the first high dune, and can't see "colorado" any more.
