Low Tide. Mont-St-Michel.

Ces dernières décennies la Baie du Mont-St-Michel avait tendance à s’ensabler et le Mont lui-même n’était plus une île sauf lors des grandes marées d’équinoxe.
Tout récemment d’importants travaux lui ont rendu son caractère insulaire.

Le rivage est très dangereux : La marée basse découvre des zones envahies par des sables mouvants et la marée montante se précipite vers le mont avec une incroyable vélocité.

These last decades the bay of the Mont St-Michel tended to make sand and the Mont itself was not anymore an island except during the equinoxial tides.
Quite recently important works gave back to it its island character.

The bank is very dangerous: the low tide uncovers zones invaded by quicksands and the rising tide rushes to the mount with an incredible speed.
