Photographer's Note

Saint-Maudez chapel in Le Pouldu, in Clohars-Carnoët in south Finistère. It was built in 15th century, then extended in 17th century. It is dedicated to Saint Maudez, a breton saint that was born in Ireland and lived in 5th and 6th centuries. He is known as the founder of a monastery on Maudez island, close to Bréhat island in the north of Brittany. He settled on the island wit his two follower, Saint Budoc and Saint Tudy, and drove the snakes out of the island. The is the reason why he is invoked to defense against creeping animals : reptilians, insects, worms, ... More than 60 chapels are dedicated to Saint Maudez in Brittany ! This chapel is not easy to find : a small sign on the right before arriving to Pouldu port coming from Clohars-Carnoët centre, then a tight road drives you to this lovely chapel between woods and fields (I recommend to walk there rather than drivining because it is hard to turn around at the chapel !).

Photo token in RAW format. Some little post processing : changed white balance, increased contrast and saturation. These were my first tests with my very new Sigma 18-250 lens.
