Mont Saint-Michel

I paused as we climbed the winding streets to the top of Mont Saint-Michel and took this photo past the gnarled tree, over the rooftops and onto the horizon. The tiny people exploring the marshes come up clearly when the zoom is applied.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Depth.”

How fascinating Mont Saint-Michel is. Rising above the surrounding tidal marshes no picture can do justice to the size and sheer architectural bravado of the place.

Only when you near the top do you get a true sense of how high and isolated Mont Saint-Michel is. Add to this the fact that much of it was built over 800 years ago without modern devices and you begin to appreciate why it is truly one of the wonders of the world.
