18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Natural granitical door in Morgat

I shot this photo at a hidden beach in the small harbourg of Morgat. That day the tidal coefficients were very high and it lets emerge from the sea a mysterious granitical door that desappears totally when the sea is at its highest level. This natural door seemed to me like the secret passage throught an unknown world. Something - for me - very metaphysical catched my eyes. I liked very much the contrast of the natural texture of the rock with the artifical ''looks like man-made'' shape of the door.
