Photo of the Day #82: The Beacon of Capbreton
We were touring the South West of France in late November of 2011. We had already been to most of the major tourist destinations and we were left scouring the province of Aquitaine to seek hidden gems. This emerald green beacon is the Lighthouse of Capbreton. Capbreton with its 7500 inhabitants is a second cousin to the world famous Biarritz just 40 km south along the Atlantic coast. Especially during late autumn the town didn't hold the glamour that Biarritz does, but it had its charm.
I think the bleakness and the rough weather works well with the lighthouse theme.
