Mystical Morning - Mont Saint-Michel, France

Shot just before full sunrise which gives this photo some nice soft colours without a lot of saturation. I was lucky to get calm winds which alowed me to get a decent reflection. Love how the colour from the sky is reflected in the water and gives this image a balanced look.
Le Mont Saint-Michel is an island commune in Normandy, France. It is located about one kilometre (0.6 miles) off the country's northwestern coast. The tides can vary greatly (14 Metres), which is reason it was nicknamed "St. Michael in peril of the sea" by medieval pilgrims making their way across the flats to reach the abbey located at the top of the mountain.
