Fort in St Malo

By colmar  
Good Morning

Saint-Malo during the Middle Ages was a fortified island at the mouth of the Rance River, controlling not only the estuary but the open sea beyond. The promontory fort of Aleth, south of the modern centre in what is now the Saint-Servan district, commanded approaches to the Rance even before the Romans, but modern Saint-Malo traces its origins to a monastic settlement founded by Saint Aaron and Saint Brendan early in the 6th century. Its name is derived from a man said to have been a follower of Brendan, Saint Malo.

Incidentally watch out when to visit the Fort as it can become surrounded at high tide !

A well controlled Image and excellent presentation. The cropping has really isolated and emphasized the subject.

Large is a must to see the amount of detail . Did you plant t hose people with their colour coordinated clothes echoing the colours of the flag ?
Love the letterbox shape for this.
