St Michael's Mount -2
   This is a rocky island crowned by a medieval church and castle, and located 366 metres off the coast of Marazion. It is linked to the town by a man-made causeway, passable between mid-tide and low water. The panorama was taken during a rising tide which is just beginning to cover the causeway. The Mount was a Cornish counterpart of Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France when it was given to the Benedictines, a religious order of Mont Saint-Michel, by Edward the Confessor in the 11th century.
