I ventured beyond West Penwith for a week on the Somerset Levels and took a few photos of Burrow Mump, a hill on the levels or rather a big bump! On top stands the ruins of St Michael’s Chapel. Across Europe many chapels and churches dedicated to St Michael were built on the top of hills and mountains. There was one nearby at Montacute but it is long gone and there now stands a folly. The more famous will be St Michael’s Mount at Marazion in West Penwith and Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France. The photo below is of Burrow Mump. Not my typical photo as I usually put my camera away in this type of weather but I couldn’t resist the friendly lambs.
Below I have included a photo from my sea and sky gallery of St Michael’s Mount at Marazion.
Maybe one day I will get to photograph Mont Saint-Michel!
