My visit last year to Mont St-Michel presented an amazing set of experiences. The Mont itself is quite physically isolated. There are only a few motor vehicles, so sounds were predominantly those of the natural world - wind, water, people talking or going about their work. The structures are visually stunning. Built on a promontory rock, very few of the structures follow traditional horizontal and vertical lines. Staircases are everywhere.
The day we arrived was very overcast, presenting both challenges and opportunities for making images. Cloud patterns were dramatic. The weather cleared the following day, with a brilliant sky and colors popping. With the wildly varied subject matter and changing weather, I ended up making a odd collection of images. Interesting textures were in many places. Views from high on the Mont allowed me to capture its isolation. Architectural elements highlight the uniqueness of the location. Other than being on or around the Mont, my images didn't come together as a cohesive set. The experience will impact me as I move further on my journey.
