The photographer: David Brown of Sacramento

Behind the lens: My wife and I recently vacationed in France for three weeks. Part of our trip included visiting the Normandy region during the first week of June. This photo is of Mont Saint-Michel, an 11th century abbey. It is built upon a small, rocky island and is connected to the mainland via a thin natural bridge. During the long walk toward it, we were in constant amazement of how beautiful it looked. The place has a surreal feel to it. We were fortunate to have great weather on the day of our visit, since rain and fog are very common in this part of France.
