Photographer's Note

The famous cape of Pointe du Raz (longitude 4,74 W) bears a reputation of being continental France's westernmost point - which is not true. There are several spots in Finisterre which can muster more, and a place near Pointe de Corsan, vicinity of Plouarzel, bears the record with 4,7955 W.

The cape has been selected to be one of 20 "Grands sites de France", landscape sites of outstanding touristical value.

Anyway, the bretonic word raz means a very strong ocean current, which obviously is the case.
If you think to see land on the horizon, you are not the victim of an optical deception: le de Sein, 8 km off Pointe du Raz.

Taken on slide film with Canon A1, professionally digitalized.
