    Men Ruz Lighthouse at Sunrise, Brittany, France

    All the northern coast of France is dotted with lighthouses. One of the most spectacular, for me, is the Phare de Mean Ruz (or Men Ruz).

    Dramatic Tuscan cypresses, in B&W

    Jokulsarlon at sunrise

    The glacial lagoon at Jokulsarlon is a classic spot in Iceland, for tourists and photographers alike. And for a reason: it is just amazing to see the multi-coloured icebergs slowly and majestically leaving the lagoon heading towards the sea, where they will dissolve forever. Hasselblad X1D...
