The Pont Neuf, Vabres-l'Abbaye

One view.
Other view.

The Pont Neuf is a bridge of the 18th century, 1734, which crosses the DOURDOU.

The color “rosy light” of photography is natural, and comes from the grounds rich in ferric clay. At the time of strong rains, the DOURDOU transfers with ocher, and colors also the TARN.

_The DOURDOU, known as "Dourdou de Camarès", takes its source at 1050 meters of altitude, in the mounts of Carroux and Espinouze, in Castanet-le-Haut, in the department of Hérault, it passes in Aveyron, before throwing in the TARN, on its left bank, in Broquiès in the department of the Tarn, after a course of 87 km and the crossing of a catchment area of 658 km². Its flow can pass from a minimal flow of 1.5 m³/s to a maximum flow of 650 m³/s.

_862, following a gift of Raymond 1st, Count of Toulouse, foundation of the Benedictine abbey of Vabres.
_1317, Jean XXII, second pope of Avignon, set up Vabres-l'Abbaye in évèché, removing parishes of the too vast diocese of Rodez, from where the construction of a cathedral in Vabres.

_The bishops of Vabres also used as refuge and residence in summer the castle of Saint-Izaire of the 14th 16th 17th 19th centuries, listed in 1346, not very distant from Vabres-l'Abbaye.

VABRES-L'ABBAYE is a french commune, located in the department of Aveyron of the Midi-Pyrénées area, populated of 1085 Vabrais in 1999, distributed out of 41 km², that is to say 26 hab./km².

Hi Joel,
beautiful view with spectacular composition, very nice colours and lights, excellent POV, the flowers in the foreground is beautiful, Tfs! Have a nice weekend! Kellemes hétvégét kívánok!
George (György)

Bonjour Joël,

Un pont moins récent que le précédent, sans doute moins impressionnant mais pourtant tout aussi graphique, tout aussi équilibré. Cette fois encore, tu l'intégres astucieusement dans une composition profonde où il prend sa place et où tu lui donnes la place qui convient pour que l'on puisse apprécier son intégration dans le site.
Excellent WE,
Roger

Bonjour Joel,

A delightful shot with a fine mixture of images.
The f/g flowers add colour and softness to the strong, separating line of the multi-arched bridge. Fine sharpness and saturation.
Perhaps a little crop from the sky would help bring the whole a little closer and add a more panoramic impression to this long bridge. Just a thought!

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Joel
une superbe photo de ce pont neuf à la couleur argileuse et un premier plan qui attire notre regard avec ces jardinières fleuries pour mieux découvrir l'arrière plan de ce plan
excellente composition
bon dimanche

Hello Joël,
A well conceived composition of this elegant bridge making good use of the framing offered by the foreground wall with its colourful plants and the similarly toned stonework. Well presented with good colours and sharpness. Je te souhait bon weekend!

Bonjour Joël,

Le principe des tiers est respecté, le ciel, les montagnes et le pont. La prise de vue envoie mon regard vers le pont et ensuite vers les montagnes ce qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. Elle permet aussi de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du Pont Neuf. La qualité de la lumière fait ressortir les couleurs. Bon weekend.

Pierre

Joel,
This is a well composed shot taken from a nice POV. The wall in the foreground creates a good border for the shot. The photo has nice lighting and color with excellent sharpness and DOF. I believe that I prefer your second WS image with the flowers and river included.
TFS,
Asa

Joël
L'endroit est beau et tu as bénéficié d'une jolie lumière ce jour là. J'ai, personnellement, une petite préférence pour la version "autre vue" que je trouve plus équilibrée et plus colorée.
Amicalement
JJ

Belle perspective de ce muret saumon clair fleuri qui nous donne envie de suivre cette route pour aller traverser ce pont par la droite.La touche fleurie apporte un plus incontestable à cette image.

Ciao caro Joel,
mi piacciono queste due prospettive, una arricchita in modo piacevole dai fiori colorati e l'altra, quella del ponte, dalla sua interessante architettura enfatizzata dalla bella luce. Superba nitidezza, fino all'orizzonte. Eccellente!
Ciao, ti auguro una buona domenica!

Bonsoir Joël,
Les trois photos du pont sont grands, ne pouvait pas s'installer sur un favori, je les aime tous.
Ceux avec des fleurs illuminent le paysage vert et la rivière, parce qu'en voyant l'eau courante, il est toujours mon agréable. Tous méritent d'être comme une photo principale, sa composition et de qualité d'image.
Bon dimanche!
Amicalement,
Charo

Bonjour Joel
Une belle recherche dans le cadrage avec les jardinières en fleurs offrant une jolie vue sur le pont, de jolies couleurs et deux WS qui me plaisent bien aussi
Beau dimanche

Hi Joël,
The different shades of red in this picture do a lot to the general impression. A beautiful bridge and a very beautiful landscape too. But looking at your WS:s, I think #1, with emphesize on the red flowers is my favorite!
Kind regards
Gunnar

Hello Joël,
The nice small tree and colorful flowers are as an excellent foreground and a frame from below for the bridge view. From above the bridge is framed with the beautiful purely blue sky. Perfectly good presentation of this historic bridge!
Best regards,
Sergiy
