The mill of Tarassac, Mons-la-Trivalle.

One view.
Other view.

The mill of Pradès of the 18th century, of the hamlet of Tarassac, on right Bank of RIVER ORB, and in front of the canyon of HÉRIC in the "MASSIF du CARROUX". The mill, was used for pressing of olives and to grind corn.

The suspension bridge of Tarassac of 1928, crosses the coastal Orb river, in front of canyon of Héric. The Héric river which descends in 4 kilometers, 800 m of unevenness in the MASSIF du CAROUX, leaned in north with the mountain of the espinouse.

_The "MASSIF du CARROUX", 2414 hectares, is a plateau of average altitude of 1000 m, culminating with 1091 m. Of alpine nature with his sharp-edged peaks and its precipice, it offers up to 3000 m of climbing, and many kilometers of superb paths.
The fast variations of altitude and the temperatures explain a very diversified flora, holm oaks, cane-apple bushes, willows, poplars, châtaigners, ashes, beeches, brooms, heathers, ferns, coniferous tree, foams, lichens.
Fauna is very varied, of the squirrel to wild boar while passing by the roe-deer, the trouts, 247 species of birds. One can see moving the golden eagle and the fawn-coloured vultures. Moreover, the solid mass of Caroux with more than 1000 individuals, counts the most important population of France, moufflons of Corsica.

_HÉRIC CANYON, "Les Gorges d'Héric".
A spellbinding and poetic course led to the hamlet of Héric to 514 m of altitude, after having crosses Héric brook by the footbridge “des soupirs","of the sighs”, and walked on the "Sentier des Gardes", “Path of the Guards”, to the "gouffre du Cerisier", “pit of the Cherry tree”, then traversed a sloping path.

_ORB RIVER is a French coastal river of 150 km. After having taken its source to 884 m, in the mounts of Escandorgue, with the Bouvial mount in Aveyron, it runs in the department of Herault to throw 15 km after Béziers, in the Mediterranean at the seaside resort of Valras-Plage.

MONS ou MONS-LA-TRIVALLE is a french commune, located in the department of the Herault of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 507 Monstrivalois in 1999, distributed out of 22 km², that is to say 23 hab./km².

"Mons" means mount, and "Trivalle" means 3 valleys, mount with the three valleys. The commune, made up of the two localities close to Mons and Trivalle, is located in the middle of the REGIONAL NATURAL PARK OF HIGH LANGUEDOC, in the middle of the valleys of Héric, Jaur and Orb rivers.
The commune is strewn with 11 hamlets: Ornac, Les Pradals, La Voulte, Tarassac, La Coste, Fenouillèdes, Courbou, le verdier haut et le verdier bas, Bardou, les Jasses.

The richness of the natural environment of Mons, its tops, its canyons and rivers, its vineyards, is supplemented by an inheritance of 12th and 13th centuries in chapel, mill and houses.

_ Created in 1973, the REGIONAL NATURAL PARK OF HIGH LANGUEDOC, Parc Naturel Régional du Haut Languedoc, is located on average mountain, including 92 communes of the departments of Herault and of the Tarn, that is to say 82000 inhabitants out of 260.000 hectares.

Hello Joël,
I like the low point of view that puts the emphasis on the mill and the graphical structure of the bridge. The fast flowing waters are nicely rendered with their reflections. Very good colours and sharpness.

Bonjour Joël,

Les arbres cadrent bien le moulin et la rivière. La capture de la puissance du courant est un atout à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du moulin. Le beau ciel bleu envoie une lumière qui met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Pierre

Bonsoir Joël,
Semble avoir fait la photo de l'intérieur du Rio.
J'aime ces vieux moulins le long des rivières.
Excellente lumière et la perspective.
Amicalement,
Charo

Joel,
The low POV works well here giving us an upward view of the mill and bridge. The river leads the eye into the shot nicely. The lighting and colors are fine and the photo has great sharpness.
TFS,
Asa

Nice place and spring image, Joel. An interesting mill by river. Fine view in google map. Good shot and presentation.
Have a nice day.

Bonjour Joël,

Mons-la-Trivalle, un coin où je suis passé il y a longtemeps et sans doute trop vite car je n'ai pas pu découvrir le site que tu présentes ici avec cette belle photo. Excellent POV - les pieds dans l'eau je présume - et une très belle gestion de la lumière avec notamment le bleu du ciel qui se reflète de jolie façon dans l'eau de la rivière.
Amitiés et bonne journée,
Roger

Hello Joel,
I like these old brick-stoned buildings. A superb image with wonderful detail and colours a great composition.
best wishes,
Achim

Bonjour Joël,
J'aime cette lumière de printemps sur la rivière et sur le moulin bâti sur le roc. Mon instinct d'ancien pêcheur de truites se réveille, il me semble en voir une juste là où le courant est le plus fort !
Amitiés
Jacques

salut joel
une belle image de ces gorges que j'ai parcouru en rando et ou je me rappelle de ce moulin, un POV bien choisi pour avoir l'impression d'avoir les pieds dans l'eau bien vu
amitiés
gilbert

Salut Joël!
Encore une fois de plus, tu as bien choisi le point de vue bas pour prendre cette photo très intéressante et vraiment jolie!
La netteté, la gestion de la lumière, les couleurs, la profondeur et la compo sont excellentes!
Tout a été mis dans l'image harmonieusement: le bâtiment à la gauche, l'eau e les pierres, le pont et toute la végétation sèche! Très agréable!
Merci du partage!
Amitiés,
Neyvan

Bonjour Joel

Très beau cadrage. Belle sensation de rivière en mouvement.
Très belle saturation des couleurs et profondeur de champs.

Salutations

Hello Christiane,

Thanks for sharing this amazing view. Excellent POV and range of colours. The bluish water, almost phosphorescent stones and fort walls in the foreground,the leafless tree on the left--all combine to make it a truly great shot.

Best wishes
Saibal

Salut Joel,
bon angle de prise de vue au ras de l'eau, ce premier plan très lumineux convient parfaitement à la présentation de ce vieux moulin à eau.

La proprete de l'eau est la promiere idee que ta photo d'aujourd'hui m'inspire. Et le sentimen qu'on est si bien au bord. C'etait ton privilege. Merci et felicitations,

Branko
