Default Great photos

Have a look at Klaus' photos. Well worth a visit. An example to us all on how it should be done.

I did not have time to go through the entire site, but what I saw was amazing. This is so inspiring to me as a beginner (when I get frustrated) to keep trying!
Thanks for posting the site!

Klaus,

Since I've got you here, I wanted to ask.

Where is that first picture in the France collection taken? And what is that center building? A monastery? Manor house? I like the picture (the sky looks a little too enhanced for my tastes) but I'd also like to go there.

Hi Eric!

The first France photo is shot at one of France biggest touristattractions in northwest France. It's called Mont Saint Michel and its a Monastery at the top. Its cone form is of hard rock/granite and is 84 meter high (I think without the monastery) and laying way out in the water with only one long road out there.
Theres some serious tides in that area - up to about 9 meters and have killed several humans through time and it also drowns the road with water and then its impossible to drive out there.
At the bottom at the rock theres too many touristshop and restaurant. But its a fabulous place to go, if your in France. Go there.
Also from my France gallery is the shot (17K). It shot from the other side of mont michel. It show the tides comming in slowly and leathal. I love both shot, but I must agree that the sky on the first one is somehow overdone. But I like it anyway. BTW St. Mont Michel is from the Bretagne/Normandie area.

There's so much to see in that area - not only St. Mont Michel.

Thanks for the info.

My girlfriend spent over a year in France in her 20's, but not in that area. I'd love to take advantage of her French skills and go back with her (and I know she'd love to do it.) I'll have to look around on the web for what else I can learn. I doubt there is another place like that on earth.

The closest I ever got is looking at France over the channel from Dover... not the same.

I was there myself a few years ago. I stayed in a place called St Colomb a few miles south (near St Marlow).

That area has the second fastest tides in the world.

There is another one in Cornwall, England: St Micheal's Mount.

Smaller and preserved in it's original state but a lot smaller.

In fact I think there might be 3 of them, don't know where the 3rd one is (assuming I'm correct).
