Mont-Saint-Michel in the morning.
This view is about a mile from the gates of the famous abbey on the rock in the sands off the coasts of Normandy and Brittany, one of the most recognised sites in the world. The spot, next to a newly-built barrage on the river to the left, was the start-line of the 10 km road race I did on Sunday with my running buddies Francesca and Leaharna.
It had been grey and raining all week before the race but Sunday met us with glorious sunshine and warm weather with refreshing breeze.
I took this picture with my old Nokia, so the technical quality isn't high.
