On a peninsula, Lanobre

One view.
Another view.

In Lanobre, le château de Val, 14th 15th centuries. Registered on Historic monuments since 1946.

The château de Val is remarkable with its bulwarks flanked by 6 towers with machicoulis.
Having dominated the valley of the DORDOGNE during centuries, it is now in waters of the reservoir of the Bort-les-Orgues dam since 1951.

The dam of Bort-les-Orgues on the DORDOGNE, 183 meters high with its foundations and 390 meters long, retains 477 millions of m3 in a reservoir 1 070 hectares and 21 km long. Its settled power is 240 MW. It produces 310 GWH/YEAR.

_ The DORDOGNE is formed in its origin, of brooks taking their spring up to 1694 meters in height, on the sides of the Puy de Sancy in the Massif Central. After a course of 483 kilometers, and the crossing of a catchment basin of 23870 km², it flows in the Garonne, at the bec d'Ambès in the estuary of Gironde, before joining the Atlantic Ocean. Description of the la Dordogne.

The status of the Dordogne made sometimes discusses, between that of an tributary river of the Garonne, or that of a river flowing into the Atlantic Ocean, by the estuary of the Gironde.

LANOBRE is a French municipality, placed in the department of Cantal of the region Auvergne, populated with 1400 Lanobréens in 2009, distributed on 41 km², is 34,2 hab./km².

Bonjour Joel,

Une image très bien construite. Les branches sur la gauche balancent le magnifique château sur la droite. J'aime voir l'environnement immédiat. Les nuages gris ajoutent une petite touche dramatique à l'ensemble.

Amicalement

Bonsoir Joël,

On peut toujours imaginer le paysage autour du château, avant la mise en eau du barrage, et regretter cette époque... Cela me fait penser à un autre château, proche de chez moi, qui a également fière allure et qui, autrefois, dominait les Gorges de la Loire : dans les années 1950, un barrage a été construit, donnant un autre cachet à la région... Ici, malgré le ciel couvert, tu as bénéficié d'une belle éclaircie, absente sur les deux workshops !

Bon après-midi,

Sylvain

Hi Joel,
a fantastic view with spectacular composition and romantic atmosphere, the POV is superb, great details and lights. Fabulous photo work, Tfs! Have a nice week! Kellemes hetet kívánok!

Bonsoir Joël
Ces tours majestueuses s'inscrivent bien dans le format de cette image et un léger voile sur l'arrière plan donne un petit caractère de mystère à ce qui peut se tramer à l'intérieur de ces pierres.
Bonne soirée
Amicalement

Hi Joël,
This is really what a castle should look like, a very "classical" version, like those I imagined when reading all the boyhood books about knights and other medieval heroes. A very interesting picture with two equally good alternative version and a likewise interesting note!
Kind regards
Gunnar

il castello è splendido e la composizione ne esalta l'imponenza.
Nonostante la luce non perfetta, il risultato è ottimo.

Bonsoir Joël,

Les arbres cadrent bien le château. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du château de Val. J'apprécie l'effet de la lumière sur le château et les nuages. Bonne soirée.

Pierre

Salut Joël!
C'est un endroit merveilleux surtout pour la présence de ce château-là, qui est magnifique!
C'est une photo très belle!
La netteté, la gestion de la lumière, les couleurs, le pdv choisi, le format horizontal et la compo sont excellents!
Merci du partage,
Amitiés,
Neyvan

Hi Joel
The chateaus are really wonderful but the whole image hangs together beautifully in this layout in this rather muted day, but the triangles attract viewers. This image gives us a glimpse into this lovely landscape in rather grey day but enough to trigger our sense. Well done, TFS
Kind regards

Joël
Comme tu le dis, ce château est remarquable et superbement situé au dessus de ces eaux de retenue. J'apprécie le très bon cadrage du post principal.
Amicalement
JJ

Rising from behind the trees, this is an impressive view of the 7 turrets Chateau, Joel.
Water level on mid-summer always low, but I take it's winter watermark are much higher, and might be needed to open the dam somtime.
Fine shot, inspite the grey sky - light was well managed.
Ike

Bonjour Roger.
Superbe visualiser l'image de ces puissants remparts du château cloutés, votre image est magnifique avec plusieurs tourelles, le cadre est magnifique avec une végétation dense, son emplacement au bord est merveilleux.
Du beau travail, je l'aime.
Bonne fin de semaine.
Cordialement.
Luis.

Bonjour Joel,
what a nice castle is this as founded on the peninsula,Lanobre,and is placed perfect in the frame.I like its excellent maintenance,with the moody atmosphere to makes the whole scenery more effective.

Have a good Sunday,Danos

Bonjour Joel,

You have no beautiful light or blue sky but that is not important, for the grey sky has added to the mood of impregnability of this imposing chateau.
You have positioned it well in the frame and there is a good sharpness to its details.
Although, I'm sure, some people would encourage you to clone out the branch, in the f/g, but, for me, it adds to the context and helps to create a sense of depth, across the water.

Have a lovely Sunday,
Bev :-)

Hi Joel
now how perfect is this!
talk about your picture perfect subject!
It truly is something out of a fairy tale story book.
the light seems to be striking the stone like a beacon while everything else is darkened or grey.
lovely shot
cheers

Bonjour Joel,
beautiful architecture. I have never seen it before. I like very much the multiple towers crowded together in a lovely structure. Amazing location too -very well presented in a asymmetric way which allows us to see the lake. Difficult weather but a great result.
Thanks for sharing,
