Other sight

The bridge of la Prade, made up of two arches over the Dourbie river.

two rivers cross Nant which are Dourbie river and Durzon river. One can add the Barbaresque underground one whose resurgence reappears near of the bridge of Prade, on left bank of Dourbie.

Bonsoir Joel,

de toutes les merveilles architecturales, les ponts sont les plus forts dans mes emotions: probablement ils symbolisent l'eau et elle est presente meme quand on ne la voit pas. Ta Durbie est la, claire et propre. Merci Joel c'est un choix superbe et une tres bonne realisation. Compliments et bamities,

Branko

Ciao Joel,
altro ponte ricco di storia, ripreso con la tua grande maestria, molto bella la composizione, il livello dell'acqua è molto basso, in questi giorni a Roma i ponti storici sono sottoposti ad un eccezionale sforzo.
ottimo lavoro

Hello Joël,
The square format is well chosen to emphasise the main arch of the bridge. I like the light and natural colours in the stonework as well as the reflections. Nant seems to offer as many photographic opportunities as Clisson; at least you were luck with the weather ;-)

Joël bonjour.
J'aime la belle courbe élégante de cette arche. Je ne sais pas s'il y a un thème sur les ponts mais on serait surpris de la beauté et de la diversité de ces ouvrages d'art.
Excellent !
Amicalement,
Jacques

Bonjour Joel
Impressionnant ce vieux pont à partir de ce POV,j'aime beaucoup ici les petits touches de jaune sur la brindille du premier plan.
Bonne journée à toi
Amicalement
Gildas

bonjour joel,
je trouve ce pont tres élégant , la courbe de l'arche qui enjambe la rivière est majestueuse.
encore un joli coin que je me dois de visiter.

bon week end
didier

Bonjour Joel,

bonjour Joel

Very interesting to see the impressive massive structure that lasts through the years and still functioning.

You presented it nicely from the diagonal angle and focus on the arch spanning across the river. Good wide view.

Merry Xmas and Happy 2009 New Year to you.

tfs, bill

Salut Joël
Intéressante courbe formée par le pont, point de vue intéressant et bon équilibre ombres lumières.
Tu maitrise parfaitement l'assemblage.
