A Vision in Green

Foamy waves, agitated by European storm Ruzica, swell around the Tévennec lighthouse in Brittany, France. Local lore complements this moody scene—the lighthouse is believed to be haunted. The image does possess a phenomenal quality, according to Your Shot photographer Mathieu Rivrin: “When we went there, the light was divine, bringing a touch of green to the magnificent Iroise [Sea] for what remains one of my favorite pictures [of] the storm.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
