Stormed by the waves, the Breton lighthouses photographed by Mathieu Rivrin for Yellow Korner, embody as much the resilience of these stone watchtowers as the strength of the raging elements. Savor the iodized air while taking pictures of these highly photogenic silhouettes in case of storm warnings as well as in calm weather.

Do you have a drone? It's the ideal photographer's equipment for original vacation photographs. Be inspired by Alex Reyval's images from the sky to photograph the marina and the port like no other. With a little height, yachts and boats look like figurines.

Sailboats have a poetic allure that is ideal for photographs that evoke travel and the call of the sea. Immortalize their silhouettes proudly on the waves or let your eye linger on their fascinating details. The wind blowing through the pristine sails of this schooner is one of the most successful photographs by English photographer Jonathan Chritchley.

You reserve color for your landscape photographs and black and white for portraits? Why not take advantage of your next vacation to change your habits and immortalize the ocean in monochrome? The wave crests captured by Jules Valentin seem to evoke mountain landscapes. You can shoot your images in color by shooting in RAW format before reworking the saturation and the black and white of your shots in retouching, you will then be free to choose the finish that you prefer.

Display on your walls your favorite photographs taken along the Atlantic coast to appreciate the beauty of these landscapes day after day. Multiply the images for an artistic mix and match thanks to a print and a gallery framed finish or prefer a large format print to better underline the majesty of your subject. The contemporary, slightly matte finish of the Zeinberg Aluminum finish promises your silver prints durability and character.
