Home of the marsh, in the Marais Poitevin, Poitevin marsh, known as "la Venise Verte", Green Venice.

One sight
Other sight

The sea occupied there is 8000 years all the golf of Pictons.
The 95 000 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 great work of draining and installation under the impulse of the abbeys, like the abbaye bénédictine of Maillezais. They continued in particular under Henri IV and the second empire. It was necessary and it is still necessary, to contain the effects of the sea and evacuate surface waters of a marsh often 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 marshe of 47.000 hectares, the wet marshe known as "La Venise Verte", Green Venice of 29.000 hectares. 19000 hectares partially desiccated should be added.
The pressure of agriculture and the catastrophic and total change of climate, lead a difficult existence to the Poitevin marsh.

Hello Joël,
A very good capture of this fine logis with its beautiful autumn creeper. The cobblestones of the quayside make good lead lines and I like also the light and shadow play along the wall and façade. I shall be following in your footsteps shortly ;-)

Bonjour Joël,

très bon point de prise. L'architecture est belle et les plantes grimpante aident beaucoup à embellir la scène encore davantage. Le contrôle de lumière est efficace et les détails sont bien visibles. Excellente composition!

Ciao Joel,
i colori dell'autunno dipingono in modo stupendo questo piccolo castello, che purtroppo ha tutte le finestre chiuse. La bella luce calda, aumenta la bellezza dei colori accompagnati da una perfetta nitidezza. Buona l'idea di fotografare anche parte della strada, enfatizzando così la profondità dell'immagine. Le tue foto sono sempre molto piacevoli, bravo, come sempre!
Ciao e buona domenica
Paolo

Ciao Joel,
bellissima l'architettura di questa casa, ma è la tua che usi nei week end? scherzo. ben gestite le luci e le ombre l'atmosfera e i colori sono fantastici.
complimenti a te per la bella foto e al giardiniere per la cura.
Giorgio

Hello Joel.
For me, the best feature of this shot is the beautiful red creeping plant on the wall of the house. Sensational colour. The photo is of course composed very thoughtfully as usual, and the exposure was really good to allow the shaded areas not to be too dark. The house is presented at a pleasing angle, its angles nicely softened by the tree and shadows on the right.
Regards,
Andrew

Oi, Joel
Está muito bonita esta mostra. Gostei dos das flores vermelhas em volta do castelo. Bela luminosidade e um contraste ótimo contra este céu azul. Abraço, Consuelo

Bonjour Joël,
Les plantes au tour de ce bâtiment et la plante grimpante rouge font un décor très beau et rehaussent l'architecture.
J'aime la cour pavée visible en premier plan et l'espace laissé au ciel, dans toute sa beauté.

Bonjour Joël,
I happened to see this photo as a random shot in your gallery, and I can't help expressing my opinion :) This is a perfect composition and, on the whole, an impressive sight! Very beautiful in many aspects, including the combination of rich autumnal colours.
Kind regards,
Elena
