Mont Saint-Michel

Les Méandres:
The medieval island commune of Le Mont Saint-Michel sits off the northwestern coast near the border between Brittany and Normandy in France. It is one of the most recognisable and visited historical landmarks in the region. The surrounding bay provides more peace, however. This photograph, taken during the spring tide in early March 2018, shows the curious land formations known locally as Les Méandres. The channels fill up in late afternoon and reflect the setting sun to create a mirror pool effect.
