Happy man, Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone

One sight.
Other sight.

Mooring on the "Canal du Rhône à Sète", canal from Rhône river to Sète.

The "canal du Rhône à Sète", goes from the Rhône, in Beaucaire, to the pond of Thau, in Sète. Completed in 1811, it is the prolongation of the "Canal du Midi" builds in 1666.

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.

Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone is a French commune, located in the department of the Herault of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 8 161 Villeneuvois, distributed on 23 km², that is to say 323 hab./km².

Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone was a diocese listed in 589, which was transferred in Montpellier in 17th century, whose remainders of the cathedral are always in the site of Maguelone, between the ponds and the Mediterranean.

Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone has a sea front which extends on more than 9 kms and offers 1 a thousand of hectares of spaces lagunaires, of brackish water in which, the professionals fish sea-breams, eels, plates, bars (in french).

Bonjour Joël,

Amitiés,

Bonjour Joél
oui tu as raison, un homme heureux dans son bateau qui me conviendrait bien, un cadrage excellent et pour le prix d'un nous en avons deux avec ce superbe reflet; une luminosité d'automne mais douce
superbe composition
amitiés

Simple and harmonious picture, with the boat very well positioned. The reflection is good, and the tower on the left completes a fine composition. Congratulations!

Bonjour Joël,

Les réflexions sur l'eau du canal sont des atouts à la composition. la prise de vue envoie mon regard vers la tour ce qui donne de la profondeur à la photo. Elle permet aussi de voir les détails et les couleurs du bateau et de l'homme qui se repose. Le ciel gris ne nuit pas au rendu des couleurs. Bon weekend.

Bonjour Joël
Une sympathique embarcation où il doit faire bon vivre... l'homme que l'on aperçoit se reposant et profitant des rayons de soleil est surement heureux de bénéficier d'un tel environnement ;) Jolies réflexions captées à la surface de l'eau et ajoutant de la profondeur. j'aime aussi les photos en ws qui complètent bien la principale.

Meilleurs vœux ;)

Amitiés

Hello Joel.
First, Happy Christmas and New year to you and your family.
The man has every reason to be happy, sitting in the bow of his boat, perhaps travelling slowly up or down the canal when he feels like it. I like the subdued lighting and the position of the boat in the composition - the little vegetation in the bottom left corner shows us the width of the canal. The tower makes the picture look nicely balanced. What a delightful scene! I watched a TV program about this region a few days ago, based on Sete - it looks like a beautiful town, too, and only about 50km from Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone? I found it on the Google maps! Not far from Montpellier, also.
Regards,
Andrew

Hi Joel! A nice picture of the canal houseboat! Happy but only the owner and loneliness is bad and even paradise! Good idea of the framework for the nice reflection! the indirect light up boat and the clean reception impress
Regards
Georgios

Hi Joël,
Indeed a happy man, living on such a fine boat. Apparently from Belgium or the Netherlands, there are certainly many canals across Europe to take you all the way down to here with a boat. I like the relaxed atmosphere here and the pleasant colours. Also the inclusion of that tower is very good.
Kind regards
Gunnar

Bonjour Joel,
What a perfect title; one could spend a long time exploring the waterways of Europe an this great little cruiser. You framed your photo well to incude one of the historical attractions of touring this way. This would be my dream way to tour Europe.
Te souhaitant la santé, & d'amour ; joie en année à venir, Pat

Bonjour Joël,

La note est également très intéressante.
