Hey Sally, thank you. I was so lucky to get this shot as we had a week of poor weather. The evening before we left, skies cleared and I was able to go back for the shot. The MSM is beautiful beyond words. Thank you for your appreciation and the awards you have given my images, I am deeply touched!

magical view, magical photo!

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in Normandy in France at the Mont Saint Michel.
Time
The image was taken at around 22h00 during the Easter Holidays, period during which the days are getting substantially longer.
Lighting
After many days of very cloudy grey skies, I was lucky to have gotten this break in the weather and to have this lovely pastel colored sunset.
Equipment
I used my faithful old Nikon D700 mounted with a 24-70 f2:8 and a tripod, no filters
Inspiration
The Mont Saint Michel is a very touristic place and thousands of people photograph it each day. I wanted "my" image, away from the hussle. I had planned it in my head for days prior to going there.
Editing
The image is an in camera composition of several bracketed images, a very little peaking and tweaking in Lightroom, nothing else
In my camera bag
Always the old D700, 24-70 f2:8, 70-200 f2:8
Feedback
Just go where the tourists are not or look the other way. Go out when everyone is either having dinner or watching TV
