Video: Four and a Half Minutes of French Lighthouses in Terrifying Storms

French Lighthouse in a Storm

An amazing Four and a Half minute video showing the power and terror of the ocean and the lighthouses that stand to protect mariners.

The Lighthouses in the video are identified as being in the  Iroise Sea in Brittany on the West coast of France.  Wikipedia describes this area as one of the most dangerous seas in Europe.  Looking at the video I can understand why the area got it’s reputation for rough and dangerous.

Several years ago I traveled through the area on a 62 foot former Swedish Coast Guard Auxiliary Icebreaker Patrol boat (see Not a Sailing Trip ), I am quite glad that the weather was nicer and the seas much better than in the video.
