over the polders of Mont Saint Michel area

Hello Guys

Great day yesterday, and what a stunning light. I headed as soon as possible toward the polders land, which lies from Dol de Bretagne to the Mont St Michel and the river Couesnon, our local "border" with Normandy. I started AP at Mont Dol, and then went to Ste Anne chapell, a wonderful little church from the 16th cent. which stands along the strand ,I posted a previous thread about it, on january, the colours were rather dull and it was freezing... that time the colours were georgous. I ended the AP session by the polders and then the Mont St Michel itself, a few minutes before dawn. A great flying time, no wind at all, very quiet and stunning lights...the total contrary with today

here are the pictures

In the vincinity of St Broladre

in the very center of the polders

Mont St Michel

and many more pictures (70) to be seen on my blog in the coming days

cheers!
