Occitan fisher hut, in the past european fisher hut :)

One sight.
Other sight.

On left bank of the coastal river Lez, to the place says "the Quatre Canaux", crossing with the channel of the Rhône to Sète.

The Lez is a coastal river of 30 km which run in the French department of Herault, while passing by Montpellier, and are thrown in the Mediterranean, to Palavas-les-Flots.

The canal of Rhône river to Sète, goes from the Rhône river, in Beaucaire, to the pond of thau, in Sète. Completed in 1811, it is the prolongation of the Canal du Midi, builds from 1667 to 1681, which connects Toulouse to Sète. This channel crosses the brackish water ponds, along the Mediterranean in the south of the area of Montpellier then the wet plains of the Small Camargue where it crosses the towns of Acute-Dead and of Saint-Gilles-of-Gard.

Palavas-les-Flots is a French commune of the department of Herault, Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 5421 "Palavasiens" distributed on 2,4 km² is 2 278 hab./km².

Palavas-les-Flots is a seaside resort located at 12 km from the center of Montpellier, on the Gulf of Lion and Mediterranean. Its emerged territory is composed of dune cords separating two ponds and the sea. The principal agglomeration is with the outlet of the channel which connects the coastal river Lez to the sea. It is one of the principal seaside resorts attended by Montpelliérains and Héraultais of the back-country.

Hi Joel,
The ornate flag flutters in that manner above the modest building, as if would be an ornate palace.:) I like it the composition and the beautiful bluue tints. Superb photo. Have a nice week!

Salut Joel,
C'est une vue inhabituelle de Palavas... La cabane est bien délabrée et çà la rend photogénique!
Techniquement, rien a dire sur les paramètres... ça baigne!
Amitiés
Laurent

Hello Joël,
I like the composition and point of view. The flag seems out of context with the rather dilapidated cabin but adds much to the mood of the shot. Good colours and sharpness with some nice reflections.

Bonjour Joël,

Les réfexions dans l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la structure de cette cabane de pêcheur. Les arbres cadrent bien la cabane. L'image est bien divisée. L'intensité de la lumière fairt ressortir les couleurs du paysage. Bonne journée.

Pierre

Hi Joel!I remember your pictures that have the house fisher. I like these points and the channels with the boats Am a complete work Thank you for the sharing!
compliments
Georgios

bonjour Joël
voilà une vue qui contraste bien avec les immeubles modernes de Pallavas!J'aime beaucoup ce petit coin tranquille,où les refltes bleutés et verts de l'eau donnent une très belle couleur à la photo!L'harmonie de couleur est ainsi parfaite,et c'est vraiment très agréable à regarder!
Amitiés
Pascale

Bonjour Joël.
On aurait pu imaginer la progression inverse pour l'Europe et L'Occitanie mais chacun est encore libre ! On voit très bien que ce n'est pas un décor hollywoodien mais il faut avouer qu'il a du charme. Bonne composition, belle lumière et beaux reflets !
Amicalement,
Jacques

Bonsoir Joël,
fisher huts are a feature I cannot resist and this one is particularly interesting. I have noticed that you have already captured it before. The hut is very attractive indeed, it is especially the tools and bits and pieces around the hut that catches the eye and it takes some time to get everything identified. I also like the photos in WS. A great document of working conditions at the canal. TFS!
Warm regards
Harriet

Bonsoir Joel,
Je dois t'avouer que j'ai un souvenir plus betonné de Palavas!En tout cas, l'endroit est interressant à la limitte de représenter l'idéal de la cabanne avec tout ses trésors et toutes ses histoires surmontée d'un drapeau fier au vent. Le reflet est beau et lisse à l'image de cette photo dont le sujet est plein d'humilité. Ca me rappelle l'ambiance "des enfants du marais"en plus méditeranéen, j'adore!
Amicalement,
Claude.

Ciao caro Joel,
anche se non è uno dei tuoi suggestivi castelli, questa foto ha dei bellissimi riflessi. Molto bello anche il WS con la barca. Quando le fotografie sono fatte con questa eccellente qualità, ogni soggetto diventa interessante. Bravo!
Ciao, buona giornata per domani!
Paolo

Hi Joel,
Good capture to the dazzling reflection on the fast flowing water surface, nice blue sky and river, what a simply fishing hut for them who are interesting in fishing, thanks for sharing WS too.
Ally

Ciao Joel,
una bella composizione dove sono molto belli questi riflessi particolari, come particolare è questa costruzione,
ottimo lavoro

Joel,
Very interesting composition here. Não se parece como uma paisagem de França, sem dúvida. Beleza de trabalho, amigo.

Abraço

bonjour Joel

Nice shot of this old hut by the river and giving another glimpse of a different view from south France. Very interesting flag still flying in full view! Informative note as you have always given to each of your post.

tfs, bill

Salut Joel,
Une vue typique je pense de ces cabanes, même si ce n'est pas vraiment esthétique, tu as su bien te placer pour avoir quleques reflets qui agrémentent la présentation. Le drapeau est bien en vue.

Salut Joel,
Une image bien cadrée, tu as bien composé autour de la cabane.
Bonne soirée,
JB.

Bonsoir Joel.
Image simple mais agréable, encore que le sujet soit pas une église romanesque ou un chateau perché.
Bien vu.
Amicalement, Bobo.

salut joel
je vois ou se trouve cette cabane de pecheur et tu l"as bien eu au bon moment pour avoir cette lumiére, il manque un élément quelque part pour meubler le premier plan

Hello Joël,

When I must choice between the two pictures than prefer I the WS with boat.
We get excellent depth and perspective, also lovely real colours.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,
John.

Hello Joel,
a strange place with the fisher hut on the left bank of the left coastal river,with the pompous sign "the Four Canaux".The half part of the flag is an eye catcher of the scene.The WS with the boat in the foreground like me more.

Have a nice afternoon,Danos

Bonsoir Joel,
Your four photos present a well-enjoyed life without ever seeing the man, but his flags and the details of his life show the picture of a happy man.
SAJ, Pat

Bonsoir Joël,
Il semble que vos vacances sont plus longues que les miennes ...
Une maison de pêcheur un peu chaotique, mais adoucie par la présence d'arbres. Superbe lumière et de bons réflexes.
Amicalement,
Charo
