Mont St. Michel at Dawn

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 4 October 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A B&W conversion of a photo from Mont St. Michel in northern France that I posted a few weeks ago.


An Open Invitation:

On Tuesday 12 October I'll be giving a talk to North Cheshire Photographic Society about my photos: NCPS Syllabus

For the first hour I'll be showing lots of my own photos using a digital projector and discussing the work of photographers like our own Hugo Poon, and John Leech who first showed me that photography could be an art form, as well as the work of iconic photographers like Michael Kenna

In the final 30 minutes of the talk I'm going to be discussing basic tips on photographic composition.

I realise that most of you live a long way away but anyone who would like to come will be made very welcome!

Is someone still living here, because it must be an amazing place to wake up, to that view!

@Claus Petersen: Thanks Claus!....yes, some people do still live there but not very many. I think it's fewer than 100. We stayed the night there in a medieval timber framed hotel - it was wonderful!

amazing mood and composition - the curve of the mirror like water just takes the eyes right in towards the monastery and somehow the eerie, mysterious mood always seems to fit such places!
