Mont Saint-Michel

Photos of the mont Saint-Michel, some from a walk across the bay, others taken at night:

The bay (1 - 2 - 3 - 4), sun shining on the mont. The mont at high tide.

The mont on the horizon (1 — 2), the walkers form a line on the sand, next to the parking, the water and sand, and at the end of the walk, a different view than the usual view from the dike, with the walls and lodgings of the abbey.

At night, a puzzling photo of the gardens, the archangel Saint Michael, the corridors, doors and arches, medieval settings, fire in the chimneys, a weird machine, and the cloister. The outside walls.
