What happens when one plays with long exposition, HDR, neons, on Ocean Drive? Something really really ‘OVER’… My purpose was to capture the essence and the colors of the neon lights of this famous street, so I decided to exaggerate every trick I know then combine them in an explosion of everything.

The lightnings were were so frequent, that I captured one of them freehand, no long exposition, no triggered shot. The event brought to my memory a sentence: “the concept of one shot, one photo.”

Out for shooting! Will be back soon with new shots! Stay Tuned!

This is my preferred interpretation of the famous monument. It will enter in my restricted collection of “my way” photos with New York, Rome, Paris, and some more. I can say this is another shot for which I have traveled till there to obtain it. The only unexpected thing were some works of building and restructuration, with a lot of machinery and a mess of mud and gates under the walls, so I had to cut them off from the framing. Soon, when the work will be over, I will go back and take this same photo with the new road and the water, for now, please enjoy this one. I think that even without the classic view from water level has his charm.

Some people undertakes into the “Traversé de la baie”, which basically is a walk where the water during the high tide covers the entire bay of Mont Saint Michel. I liked the contrast with the small people, with the wide place and the citadel in the far side, like a mythological place.
