When the tide turns.

You wouldn't want to be trying to head north around the Pointe De Raz with the tide ebbing like this - and this is a flat calm - during storms this is the most dangerous headland in France - at least one French fishing boat has been rolled through 360˚ while rounding the Point de Raz in a storm. At certain times and tides local handline fishermen fish for bass in this tide race. The lighthouse in the foreground is the La Vielle - not to be confused with the one further up the coast called La Jument which was made famous for one particular photograph by photographer Jean Guicard!

You can enjoy this wide-angle view everyday from the Point de Raz on Through the Gaps webcam page.
