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 by being an outrageous 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.
