Mont Saint-Michel

Visited the beautiful and unique abbey of the Mont Saint-Michel, an island commune in Normandy.
The island has held strategic fortifications since ancient times and since the 8th century AD has been the seat of the monastery from which it draws its name. The structural composition of the town exemplifies the feudal society that constructed it: on top, God, the abbey and monastery; below, the great halls; then stores and housing; and at the bottom, outside the walls, houses for fishermen and farmers.
Here are some shots I took there, and a small day to night time-lapse during tides, hope you enjoy them.
