Photographer's Note

Another picture from Le Mont Saint-Michel.
Le Mont Saint-Michel is a rocky tidal island in Normandy, France. It's located approximately one kilometer off the country's north coast, at the mouth of the Couesnon River near Avranches.
On the island has been located Norman Benedictine Abbey of St Michel surrounded by the winding streets and convoluted architecture of the medieval town.
In 1979 the Mont-Saint-Michel and its bay were added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites (because of cultural, historical, architectural significance, as well as human-created and natural beauty).
