A photo I took during a bright summer day!

The "Mont-Saint-Michel" (English: Saint Michael's Mount) is a rocky tidal island in Normandy, France.

It's a huge monument with an abbey and a village. UNESCO has classed the Mont Saint-Michel as a world heritage in 1979 and this mecca of tourism welcomes more than three million visitors a year.

Beautiful photograph. OTOH, calling it a "mecca of tourism" is an affront to its spiritual nature. In fact, calling it a "mecca" of anything would be an affront. Again, beautiful photo.
