On a cold, overcast day, the light playing over the mud flats surrounding Mont St Michel illuminates a simple, but subtly beautiful landscape.
The cloister garden of the Mont Saint Michel Abbey is closed on four sides by these walls of arches, but open to the skies.
Apologies to anyone who has had difficulties seeing the pictures the last couple of days, and thanks to everyone who let me know. The problem should be fixed now, at least for all new posts. Don’t you just love I.T.?
2011 is fast approaching here in Australia. On one of the noisiest nights of the year, I thought it appropriate to post a quiet and reflective picture, since the crowd outside my window is anything but!
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who’s read and commented on Journey Photographic since its inception. It’s been a great six months or so – here’s to many more! I hope everyone has a happy new year, and a safe and successful 2011.
Looking down from the Abbey to one of the towers of Mont St Michel.
From one of my most recent pictures to one of my oldest – another picture from the black and white Mont St Michel series.
The view from Mont St Michel, looking out past the abbey cloisters into the bay, is both bleak and awe-inspiring.
