Moved away from Montpellier and Nimes of 30Km, the Grau-of-King is the only maritime outlet of Gard. The city is batie along a grau. It is the local name of a channel connecting the littoral ponds to the sea. The activity of fishing gradually decreased since half of the 20th century to the profit of the tourist activity. It was developpé a seaside resort, and a marina known under the name of the Port-Camargue. One finds there also an aquarium important.

Hi Joel,
Nice image. I would probably have chosen to have a little more water and less sky but that is just my opinion. The quality of the image is great and I love the reflections. Nice architecture in the corner building.
Cheers,
Debbie

Hello Joel,
Nice photo you bring here, what i like most is the sharpness and colors.
However i have to agree with deblink about the choice on the composition because, the sky is just blue and doesn´t have much to see in comparison with the water refexes.
Nice Work!

salut joel
tu prends des photos de mon coin !!!! non je rigole je suis a Nimes c'est pas loin, un bon PO et une bonne netteté avec un temps magnifique, le calme de l'hiver a son charme ici
amitiés
gilbert

Bonsoir,
Une photo tres nette et bien cadrée du port du Grau du roi. Les bateaux semblent paisiblement amarrés dans l'attente d'une sortie en mer.La présence du camion est dommage mais passe inaperçu avec sa couleur blanche.
Tres bonne journée
Thierry

Bonjour Joel
un coin de la côte Languedocienne que je ne connais pas et une image qui me donne envie d'y faire un saut un de ces jours de printemps avant le tsunami touristique estival.
cadrage sympa et couleurs soutenues.
bonne semaine à toi
amicalement

Good contrast and colours for this image. The buildings stand out against the blue sky and the array of boats is attractive.
Good sharpness. Thanks for sharing

bonjour joel
j'adore le Grau du roi en hiver sans ses touristes, la lumiere y est tres belle et la tranquilité appreciable.

amicalement

Bonjour Joël,
Une très belle vue sur ce quai pittoresque. La lumière est belle et génère d'agréables couleurs mais tu auris du essayer de dissimuler la camionette et de diminuer l'importance du ciel.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Joel. Some absolutely marvellous shots of France in your gallery. I love this one for its light and shade and slightly under-exposed colour. Beautiful composition, making this place seem very inviting, one that I would like to visit some time. My only suggestion would be to straighten the shot so that the light-house on the left is absolutely vertical instead of leaning to the right. Maybe the whole picture needs a slight rotation. But that is not so important as the image is luminous and the water's wavelets look marvellous - maybe the tide was coming in. Excellent shot.
Regards,
Andrew

Bonjour Joël,

Les réflexions dans l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. Les palmiers cadrent bien les bateaux et la rue. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l,architecture des différents immeubles. Le ciel bleu envoie une lumière qui fait ressortir les couleurs du paysage. Bonne journée.
