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.

Olá Joel!
A photo with great composition.
Good and beautiful colors.
Good framing.
Parabéns.
luis(portugal)

Beautiful scenery and softness in the tone and texture of the photograph. The composition justifies the uniqueness of the location of the castle .... The notes state that this scenery was not as seen today - with the waters of the dam. However it is not difficult to imagine that the castle was on raised ground atop a hill.
The clarity of the photograph lies in the details of the variety of shades.
The framing is appropriate.
Thanks for sharing.

Bonjour Joël
Le temps nuageux donne une luminosité particulière qui met en valeur cet élégant château.

Hello Joël,

Thank you very much for your interesting note and the much links.
What a very lovely place, you placed the castle on a excellent place, this gives more space about the lake.
Sharpness and clarity are wonderful.
Excellent composition, good presentation, TFS.

Best regards,
John.

Hello Joel.
One of your most beautiful shots for a long time, I think. It allows more space around the architecture than you usually show, and the water and the marvellous sky set the atmosphere. It doesn't look like Summer, but the gentle light can make a very good picture when the sky is dark like this. The towers of the chateau look superb, and the composition provides good foreground interest. Thanks for your note which explains that this is a dam on the Dordogne.
I trust you are well and still enjoying your photography.
Regards,
Andrew

Ola Joel ,
Encantador este lugar para passear com este castelo junto desta margem deste lago , o céu cinza dá muito dramatismo a imagem , bonita esta vegetação bem verde em primeiro plano ,parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Bonjour Joel,

J'aime beaucoup comment tu as découpé l'image pour nous offrir non seulement ce magnifique château mais aussi son bel environnement. Le lac est beau et les nuages gris apportent une belle touche dramatique à l'ensemble.

Amicalement

Bonjour, cher ami Joël,
nous pouvons voir comment l'orage s'approche depuis le côté gauche de la photo, tandis que l'architecture merveilleuse du château a encore une lumière douce.
J'aime la verdure des arbres qui entourent le château, la beauté du lac artificiel créé par le réservoir, et la profondeur du paysage.
Les couleurs ont une haute qualité malgré le jour gris et nuageux.
C'est une belle réalisation.
Bien amicalement,
Josep

Hi Joël,
This could have been a picture of a past century; not really any modern items are visible (you have perfectly hidden the blue boat behind the bush). A very pleasant composition with the beautiful landscape turning blue in the distance. Interesting workshop pictures and note!
Kind regards

Bonsoir Joël,

La météo, et sans doute la température de l'eau, ne devaient pas inciter à la baignade, ce jour-là ! Très bon cadrage, avec l'arbuste et la petite plage au premier plan, et belle profondeur de vue créée par l'ouverture sur le lac, à gauche. La note comme les liens sont toujours aussi intéressants !

Bonne soirée,

Sylvain

Salut Joel.
Une magnifique composition, avec cette vue magnifique sur le beau château, qui est spectaculaire avec toutes ces tours coiffées de toits coniques, son emplacement sur le bord de l'eau, augmente sa beauté dans l'environnement, malgré le temps nuageux est une vue spectaculaire.
Passez un bon après-midi.
Cordialement.
Luis.

Hi Joel
looking at the WS photos, I have to admit that i enjoy those a little bit more than this one!
but don't get me wrong, all are worthy of being posted here.
and each have their own positives and differences.
I think you posted this one FB too right?
such a lovely piece of architecture, one of the best you've uploaded.
I like the grey skies, it gives a haunting mood to the photo.
excellent trio of photos.
cheers

L'épaisse couche de nuages filtre cette douce lumière et donne des couleurs tendres au paysage entourant ce beau château à la situation privilégiée.

Bonjour Joel
Douce lumière qui filtre le ciel nuageux, rend bien les détails et les couleurs, belle situation du château au bord de l'eau, la présentation me plaît bien aussi sur le WS1, qui permet de voir l'entièreté du château
Belle soirée

Hello Joël,

Beautiful castle, beautiful surrounding
and a sky that fits very well.
Picture is taken from a great point of
view and has a great composition and
light management. A nice (but small)
detail is the stone wall right in the
picture: that give the picture an extra
depth and it shows that you have a great
eye for details.

Friendly regards,
Robert
