Saint-Malo Beach Sunset Photos, Brittany, France

After returning from Saint-Briac-sur-Mer there was time for a swim, and a clear night promised a good sunset; with low pressure forecast for the next day. So I stayed on the beach waiting for the sun to go down. It took quite a long time, and was quite cold by the time it did.

Saint-Malo Green Light

Despite shivering and snivelling, I took some photos, and was rewarded by seeing the Green Light for the first time; the last light of the sun’s spectrum as it dipped below the horizon.

I’d thought about it during the holiday, remembering watching the French movie Le Rayon Vert (The Green Ray), which I just read on Wikipedia is also the name of a Jules Verne novel featured in the film.

Saint-Malo Beach Photos

I hadn’t been thinking about it that night though, and it caught me by surprise just after taking the last Saint-Malo sunset photo featured here.

I also took this website’s header photo that night, and some photos of course featured in the Jesus Christ D-Day Beaches video.

Saint-Briac-sur-Mer, Brittany, France Photos and Info

On my penultimate day in Brittany, France I took the bus from Saint-Malo to Saint-Briac-sur-Mer. The bus went through Dinard, so I scouted my journey to the airport for the return flight, judging the best time to disembark the bus.

Saint-Briac-sur-Mer Photos

After visiting the post office I walked around to the beach. The war memorial looked over the beach, and another photo was included in the Jesus D-Day Beaches video.

Saint-Briac-sur-Mer is a nice beach resort, which was quiet on that sunny lukewarm midweek day in September. Photos 4-7 are from the grounds of Le Chateau Nessay seen at the far side of the beach in photo 3.

Wikipedia’s Saint-Briac page says the chateau was built on a 12th century castle, and was used as a prison during the French Revolution.
