Le Mont St Michel

This one was planned up in the skies alright... It rained for most part of the day as we got there to the Northwest tip of France. The skies were gloomy and the prospects of seeing the breathtaking Mont St Michel rise up into glorious skies seemed unlikely. But even as we parked our car, the skies parted and the sun peeked out. And this is what we saw -



It's little wonder that this is the second most visited place in France next to the Eiffel Tower. And even as we finished walking the length and breadth of the mountain and the abbey, the rain started once more. It was all timed to perfection. Lucky us.

The positioning is very nice! Gorgeous location. A few minor tweaks and this nice shot will be very gorgeous!!

I would recommend to dial down the aperture size (ie increase the f-number to 8 and beyond till say 11 or maybe even 16, if you didnt already do it), as I feel the shot is a bit soft and this can make the image sharp.
Also try using a circular polarizer, you would get much better contrast and color punch, especially the colorful trees. Also try playing with different white balance settings for interesting setting, maybe a warmer feel by dialing up the color temp.
