Baie de Mont St Michel



  1. I love this Mike. The subdued tones in this create a very restful image and it obeys the KISS principle. There is also a chuckle with the slightly suggestive looking island with this PoV.

  2. I agree with Rex about the tones. I am also amused by the dark island although that didn’t immediately strike me in the way it does now because the first image that came into my head was a salt-encrusted flat-surfaced crater high up in the Andes in Chile, in which small rocky protuberances jutted above the surface. Restful and intriguing though it is, I find the horizontals and slight angles of sky, sea and foreshore disappearing too far off to the right for perfection: it is as though it needed to travel further off to the right, even that was impossible for the topography of the place. Maybe it just needs to be seen in an ultra-large format to make the most of it.

  3. Thank you. I too hadn’t thought of the island that way. Also interesting that John has raised a question that I hadn’t when preparing the file. When we get home ina few weeks I will make a good sized print and see how it looks – the right edge is slightly disturbing at this scale and it will be interesting to see if it changes in a print.
