You know the ol' saying that "a picture is worth a thousand words," right?
Right. I thought so. Well, Colossal just provided us with today's example of that idiom's veracity. ...OK, so make that "Colossal and Paris-based photographer, Loïc Lagarde." (Be sure to check out the rest of his photographs. They're just as stunning as this one would suggest.)
Last week while visiting Le Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy, photographer Loïc Lagarde captured this awesome view of the tidal island at night with the Milky Way spanning the sky above, further highlighting the near fairy-tale nature of the historic landmark.
Lagarde says the photo was made without multiple exposures or blending and is a ‘true’ representation of the moment.
