Frosty Grounds (Brittany)

Roz Ven - Saint-Coulomb, France

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Here are some photos of the frosty beach of La Touesse, in Saint-Coulomb, Brittany. We are very fortunate to have a house in the village and we usually spend most of our holidays there. But what a difference with the summer! It had frosted overnight when I shot these and the beach was covered in crunchy ice. The sea has already washed away some of it, leaving half of the beach unfrozen.

The last picture is one of "Roz Ven", the house french writer Colette lived in for a few years after her friend and lover Missy bought it. Colette wrote her best-known book "Le blé en herbe" there.
