Mont Saint-Michel

I wanted to get something a little different from the usual pictures taken of this landmark in France. Taken end of last month, the day became very bright, hot, with a approximately 1.5 mile walk from where you park the car. I had already set-up for doing street photography with an ISO 800 I thought the images would be too dark, all the same, I’m pleased with the result. One point of advise to anyone thinking of visiting Mont Saint-Michel, go early! My wife and I were amazed how crowded this tourist attraction was, once we were on the Mont, we found it near impossible to get around it as there was so many visitors.
