Guarding the shores - Fort National, Saint-Malo, France

A long exposure shot to get some movement in the clouds and to smooth out the water.
Fort National is a fort on a tidal island a few hundred metres off the walled city of Saint-Malo on the west coast of France. The great military architect Vauban had it built in 1689 to protect Saint-Malo's port. One may visit the fort when the fort is flying the French flag. Access is only possible at low tide during the period from 1 June to 30 September and on certain other days.
