Le Mont Saint Michel Images.
Le Mont Saint Michel Images. During my cycling trips I normally ensure I have enough time to carry out my other passion – Photography.
This image was taken on a 10 day cycling trip in Normandy, Brittany and The Channel Islands.
Mont Saint-Michel is an island commune in Normandy, France.
It is located approximately one kilometer (0.6 miles) off the coast of Normandy, at the mouth of the Couesnon River near Avranches. Click Here For Google Maps.
The island has held strategic fortifications since ancient times.
Since the eighth century AD has been the seat of the monastery from which it draws its name.
The structural composition of the town exemplifies the feudal society that constructed it.
On top the abbey and monastery, below this the Great halls, then stores and housing, and at the bottom, outside the walls, fishermen and farmers’ housing.
The Image – Le Mont Saint Michel Images.
This image was taken at low tide just off the causeway linking the island to the main land.
The main problem that came to mind was the large expanse of plain sand in the foreground, so I positioned myself in such a way that the uneven textures led the viewers eye to Le Mont Saint Michel.
I then just waited and luckily was treated to this sunset.
My camera was mounted on a tripod and a cable release was used.
