N – E – S – O

Le Phare de Chassiron lies at the western tip of Ile d’Oleron facing out into the Bay of Biscay and the Atlantic beyond.  Around the lighthouse the gardens have been laid out in the pattern of the cardinal points of a compass creating leading lines from the north, east, south and west or nord, est, sud and ouest in French.

The lighthouse is 46 metres tall so requires a wide angle view to capture it and it’s gardens – in this case I opted for my Samyang 7.5mm fisheye.


Deep blue – the view to the west.
