Watching the 2013 Tour de France over the past few weeks brought memories of my day at
Mont Saint-Michel wishing I had known beforehand what the cyclists knew of the bitterly cold
cross winds. Regardless of the unexpected cold winds, it was a day I looked forward to and
will never forget.

The Gothic-style Benedictine Abbey dedicated to the Archangel St Michael, and the village
below were built between the 11th and 16th centuries. on a rocky islet in the midst of a large
area of sandbanks which are exposed to the powerful tides between Normandy and Brittany.

Over three million people visit the technical and artistic masterpiece of Mont Saint-Michel
each year. It is one of the most recognisable landmarks of France and is included in the
UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites as well as being a listed French Monument Historique.

    Marvelous architecture, Trish, and quite crowded. My first thought was if that were a painting, that’s exactly the kind of sky and cloud formation an artist would have used – must be something about the Mediterranean “light” artists referred to. Another great shot, Trish.

  • Gary, thank you very much ! The day itself wasn’t the greatest and it rained as we reached the car some hours after taking this shot, so I was really very happy when I saw this on the computer screen. It is, as you observe, very crowded, with steps and passageways between some buildings, while others are conjoined. One could easily become disorientated without a guide. Mont Saint-Michel is in Normandy, but the light there is pretty special too, at least the Impressionists thought so.

    Great capture of Le Mont Saint-Michel! This was the subject of the first picture postcard from abroad that I received as a teenager from a schoolfriend. My collection eventually expanded to several biscuit tins and boxes. I still have it intact and occasionally add to it. However, since the advent of digital photography, I seldom do much with it.

  • Thanks very much Kathryn for your interesting comments and favourite !

    Wow what a huge impressive place. I can visualize the duke, baron or king looking out from that at all he controls.

  • Thanks so much Byron for your comments and favourite ! It is a pity it can’t be seen even larger to reveal the many people who remain invisible at this size.
