The SÉVRE NIORTAISE river crosses and creates the POITEVIN MARSH.

_ The SÈVRE-NIORTAISE river is a coastal river, which takes its source in the commune of Sepvret in the departement of Deux-Sèvres, close to Les Grandes-Fontaines hamlet, at 152 meters of altitude. It crosses Niort, then goes down in the MARAIS POITEVIN, marsh of Poitou, which it feeds, before throwing in the Atlantic Ocean in the Anse de l'Aiguillon, after a course of 158.1 km and the crossing of a catchment area of 3650 km², with a average flow of 44.4 m³/s. the Sèvre Niortaise and Sèvre-Nantaise rivers, gave their name to the department of Deux-Sèvres. Sèvre-Niortaise river description.

_ The MARAIS POITEVIN, Marsh of Poitou, old Gulf of Poitou, gulf of Pictons that sea occupied 8000 years ago, extends on the plains from the Vendée in north, the plain of Niort in Deux-Sèvres in the east and the plain of Aunis in Charente-Maritime in the south. The 95000 hectares of the Poitevin Marsh, were built by the marine currents and the alluvia brought by the rivers and rivers. Since the Neolithic era, the resources were exploited there. Salt, fishing, the breeding were developed there until the time Gallo Romaine. With the Middle Ages began from great work of draining and installation under the impulse of the abbeys, like benedictine abbey of Maillezais. They continued in particular under king Henri IV at the 17th century, and at the 19th century. It was necessary and it is still necessary, to contain the effects of the sea and to often evacuate surface waters of a marsh to the lower part of the open seas. On the whole thousands of kilometers of channels of all sizes, drains, ditches, conches, were dug.
The marshes are divided into two, the DESICCATED MARSHES of 47,000 hectares, and THE WET MARSHES known as The Venice Verte of 29,000 hectares. 19000 hectares partially desiccated should be added.

Hi Joel,

Very good POV and a very neat image. I see, there is not any redundant object, very balanced with all elements. Superb colors and clarity. Existence of the traffic sign adds value to the scene bigger than its size. I really liked it a lot. Thanks for the share. Regards,

Suleyman

Hello Joël,
The mairie stands next to the church as is the case in many French towns and villages. Your point of view shows everything in context and offers some interesting tonal contrasts. Fine technical presentation with top class light, colours and sharpness. Bon dimanche.

Hello Joel,
A beautiful image with amazing details and wonderful light. I like a lot the contrast between the white,minimal house and the impressive church.
Have a nice week,
Regards,
Maria

Bonjour Joël,

L'église est bien placée dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture de l'église Saint-Guy et de l'immeuble en avant-plan. La qualité de la lumière met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bon dimanche.

Bonjour Joel,

Une image parfaitement composée. Une belle diagonale dans l'image qui lui donne une belle profondeur, une grande netteté et une luminosité supérieure. Une belle devise, sur un mur tout blanc.

Bonsoir Joël,

Tu as eu un temps superbe ce jour-là, la lumière et les nuages dans le ciel sont du plus bel effet. L'église du village est de facture récente, les teintes pâles du clocher dont écho aux murs blancs de la mairie. Belle photo, bien réalisée !

Bonne soirée,

Sylvain

Bonsoir Joël
le pdv était bien choisi pour nous présenter une partie de ce village, avec ses maisons typiques de la région ainsi que l'église dont son clocher bien illuminé. Le ciel bleu, les nuages ne font qu'embellir l'image.
la version postée est celle que je préfère :)

Amitiés
Marilyn

Salut Joël!

Joël
Superbe lumière et beau ciel. J'aime la juxtaposition des deux édifices, laïc et religieux, le premier affichant clairement sa différence sur la façade. Les deux WS sont très réussis également.
Amicalement

Bonjour, cher ami Joël,
une jolie composition dans laquelle les claires tonalités de l'architecture du village se détachent élégamment sur le ciel bleu, dans une image avec un bon contraste.
J'aime ce cadrage très équilibré graphiquement, et la luminosité fantastique de la photo.
La devise de la République peinte sur le mur de la maison est un détail très sympathique.
Un travail excellent.
Bien amicalement,
Josep

Hi Joel,

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see beautiful church with neo-greek style and two buildings with the wall of gentle color.
The whole is harmonized and ballance well by a good composition and excellent color balance. And, the sky with clouds is tasteful, too. So, here looks as peaceful place.

Warm regards,
mikio
