Celebrating France in Second Life Week: Mont Saint-Michel



Mont-Saint Michele is a rocky island located about 1 kilometer off the Normandy Coast on France’s Atlantic seaboard. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations in France because of the magnificent Romanesque Church on top of ramparts, battlements, and castle structures which were part of the original Abbey which stood on this spot. It is also famous for its causeway which disappeared at high tides, but which is now being removed to restore Mont Saint Michel to its original island state. Second Life Mont-Saint-Michel does a good job in showing its stunning effect as a great construction of medieval architecture isolated as rugged outpost in the sea.


As a strange coincidence, Benja has also photographed here and ran photos in his blog at the same time.  You can fine them here:

  1. Nice photos, Eddi!

    I notice you aren't using the zoom feature of the Second Life camera? Is that your preference?

    If not, CTRL-0 will zoom your camera in and CTRL-8 will zoom it out. CTRL-9 will reset to default.

    Torley Linden has a video about it (Torley has vids about everything!). The URL is:

    2. Actually it is a good trick! There is much more precision than just using the distance hash in the camera tool. Much obliged for this!
