photoblog image Looking down again

Looking down again

 

View from the terrace in front of the Abbey Church - the patterns  on the sea level and the dramatic solitude (without the tourists by day) of the Mont are fascinating. The next time I would like to see Mont St. Michel at high tide. The tide here is one of the highest (ca.13 meters) and fastest in Europe. The tide gets a speed of more than 20 km/h. I saw some people walking by bare feet across the mud flats to Mont St. Michel and I saw some horsemen, too. I wished I had get some foreground in the picture.

This is a very fine image indeed Philine. It has quite a dreamy quality and like a painting.
Philine: Thank you very much for your words, Chad! Guten Morgen!

I like the melding of land and sea Philne
Philine: I do it, too - Grüß Gott, Chris, und einen guten Tag in Bavaria!
Cracking picture Philine. It has a fine abstract quality
Philine: Many thanks, Bill! I myself was fascinated by this view. I former times I did walks across the waddensea of the Northsea.
I absolutely love this and would prefer it without the foreground - water only.
Philine: Thank you very much, Mary!

This works well as an abstract. Nature creates some beautiful spectacles. I had not realised that the tidal range is so big. I think cropped to eliminate most of the sky this would look lovely on the wall of your home.
Philine: I myself was mesmerised by this view. In former times I joined walks across the waddensea (of the Northsea). You showed the mud flats of the Pacific (Cannon Beach) Ocean some days ago. Now we have very strong autumn storms, perhaps also an impact of Irma hurricane? Many thanks, Alan, and another good day!
I like the amost abstract appearance of this Philine, I rate it as one of your very best posts.
what a wonderful dreamscape image Philine... it looks like it is a b&w painting....petersmile
