Popular on 500px : A flicker of sun on the Mont by Angshu

A magical island topped by a gravity-defying medieval monastery, the Benedictine Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel counts among France’s most stunning sights. For centuries one of Europe’s major pilgrimage destinations, this holy mount is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as is its breathtaking bay. The Mont was one of Christianity’s most important pilgrimage sites from the 8th to the 18th century.

It was a cloudy and rainy weekend in Mont Saint Michel….but after noon, the clouds started to thin out and there was the first flicker of the mid day sun on the Mont…What an awesome sight it was!
