This rusty old boat was captured at sunset looking across the Baie de Morlaix. I had posted a similar image a few months back when I first joined Flickr but was not completely happy with the amount of noise (arising from a landscape crop of a portrait image). I have since been able to almost completely eliminate such noise with JACS pro9 noise reduction and Gaussian blur in GIMP 2. Thanks for looking.

In the background the Rocamadour chapel and the Vauban tower.

Robert Anning Bell's east window in St Pol-de-Leon, Paul. The central scene is Sir Galahad on the quest for the Holy Grail, with angels attending him. The Hooge/Ypres references refer to William Torquill Macleod Bolitho, to whom the window is a memorial to. He fell at Chataeu Hooge during the 2nd battle of Ypres.

History

It was formerly the seat of the Bishop of Saint-Pol-de-Léon, a bishopric established in the 6th century and abolished under the Concordat of 1801, when its territory was transferred to the Diocese of Quimper.

 

It is dedicated to its 6th-century founder, the first bishop Saint Paul Aurelian. He was originally from Wales and he is considered to have been the first bishop of the Léon area.

 

Built on the site of an ancient Roman church, some vestiges of which still exist. This great monument has been constructed in several stages. The present building however, although on the same site, was built in the 13th century (with later additions). The facade with its two high towers and the remarkable nave from the 13th century made of limestone from Caen, limestone demonstrate this stylistic and economical heritage from Normandy. The western façade and the south porch date back from the 13th century whereas the chancel (choir made of granite) and the transept are from the beginning of the 15th century. The cathedral was completed in the second half of the 16th century (the ambulatory and the southern chapel). It also has an ensemble which is almost unique in Brittany

 

The 50-metre spires are from the end of the 14th century. In the 16th century, side chapels gave it its definitive stature. The cathedral is 80 metres long in total, 16-metre height under the vaults and 44 metres wide with the transepts.

 

In the north tower, there are three bells which date from more than three centuries ago, including the oldest bourden bell in Brittany, which weights more than 2 tonnes, and was cast in 1563.
