Ile Vierge Lighthouse
I've always wanted to photograph a great spiral staircase and I found just the right location on the Brittany coast. This is the wonderful interior of Le Phare de I'ile Vierge, the lighthouse of Ile Vierge in Plouguerneau en Bretagne, France. After a short boat trip in mid afternoon we were presented with a brief window of opportunity to photograph the beautiful paneled interior and winding staircase, with its burnished bronze banister curling its way up the 392 steps to the top. The spectacle looking up the centre of the stairs was indeed a sight to behold but getting an image free of my fellow sightseers was a challenge but worth the perseverance and really suited a black and white conversion.
