First sunlight at St Michaels Mount.
05:52 08 June 2013
St Michael’s Mount is one of 43 unbridged tidal islands which can be walked to from mainland Britain (wellies may be required).
Lots of interesting history and myth is told about the origins of the Mount. One of the most interesting facts is that it has been home to a village for over 200 years and people still choose to live there today. Whilst at times the isolation must be peaceful, nipping out for a pint of milk could be a real chore.
But its not all so out of date, the island actually has its own underground train system. Originally built in the 1800’s to transport goods from the harbour to the castle. Could this be the worlds smallest tube line? Mind the gap!
Canon 5D3, EF 17-40mm F4 L, wellies and warm socks.
