Shameless on Mont St Michel

Mont St-Michel is a monastery situated off the coast of Normandy, and its history spanning over a thousand years has earned its place as a UN World Heritage Site. During low tide, it is possible to walk across from mainland France.

I was lucky enough to have made a stop there on a sunny day in winter. So much for applying techniques of photography, the place was so charming that I ended up taking quite a fair bit of shameless tourist shots. It is a gorgeous place, perhaps made a bit too perfect and looks more like a tourist trap, but one can easily overlook the souvenier shops and hotels to imagine what life was like there hundreds of years ago, in the time of pilgrims and the battle of good v evil.

Stylesheet from
A Fairy Tale The sacrifice contemplation ...
Modern day prilgrims Written in the sky
Can you handle this?
The Journey
Panorama Overwhelmed
Pinnacle Dwelling
And then there was light Almost full
Reluctance The person within
In focus Enter stranger
Architectural detail Glimpse
Spectrum Warmth
Wish you were here Pitch Black
Race towards the light
In the shadow Miles to go ...
