In Poitevin marsh, on the territory of the commune of Saint-Jean-of-Liversay.

One sight. Sèvre Niortaise river.
Other sight. Sèvre Niortaise river.

Near the farm of Carpe, in a loop of Sevre Niortaise, in the "Marais désséché", desiccated marsh, noneasily flooded, which extends between bay from the Aiguillon bay and the "Marais mouillé", wet marsh, known as "Venise Verte", green Venice.

The sea occupied there is 8000 years all the golf of Pictons.
The 95 000 hectares of the Poitevin Marsh, were built by the marine currents and the alluvia brought by the rivers and rivers. Since the Neolithic era, the resources were exploited there. Salt, fishing, the breeding were developed there until the time Gallo Romaine. With the Middle Ages began great work of draining and installation under the impulse of the abbeys, like the abbaye bénédictine of Maillezais. They continued in particular under Henri IV and during XIXe century. It was necessary and it is still necessary, to contain the effects of the sea and evacuate surface waters of a marsh often to the lower part of the open seas.
On the whole thousands of kilometers of channels of all sizes, drains, ditches, conches, were dug.

The marshes are divided into two, the desiccated marshes of 47.000 hectares, the wet marshes known as "La Venise Verte", Green Venice of 29.000 hectares. 19000 hectares partially desiccated should be added.

Hallo Joel!
You show us a really wonderful place here - under a gorgeous sky. All the picture transmits "SPRING" and calm! This must be a place to feel good, to relax. Thank you for showing this beautiful scenery in such an excellent photo!
Greetings from sunny but cool Germany!

Hello Joël,
A good composition with a pleasing layered effect. The interesting sky is very appealing and I like the lush green tones of the vegetation, which are very redolent of springtime. Fine photo work.

Bonjour Joël,

La ligne diagonale de la rivière et les réflexion dans l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. Les peuplier font un effet graphique. La prise de vue dirige notre regard vers la maison proche de la rivière. Le ciel envoie une lumière qui rehausse les différentes teintes de couleurs du paysage. Bonne journée.

Bonsoir Joël,
very fascinating landscape, excellently captured with very attractive colors. The light is also fantastic. All versions are very beautiful and I think that the second image is the one that is most harmonious. My compliments for these wonderful impressions from the Marshlands.
Warm regards

Olá Joel

Uma paisagem linda, o céu com muitas nuvens e o verde em uma variedade de tonalidades...
As florzinhas amarelas enfeintam a beira do rio singelamente.
Parabéns!
