Hi Friend,
Simply a very good snap...
thanks for sharing with us...


Hello Joel,
Good capture of these ramparts with excellent colours and light. I like the point of view but you might want to think about cropping some of sky and making a more panoramic format which would help emphasise the mass of these ramparts.

bonjour Joël
beau point de vue pour présenter une vue d'ensemble, avec ces petits arbres pour agrémenter le premier plan et cette bonne lumière de côté

Salut Joël
D'aprés ViaMichelin la route qui mène à ce lieu est très belle et ce n'est pas loin de la A75, je suis passé à côté cette année ce qui est dommage.
Joli point de vue sur les remparts sous une luminosité enviable.
