One view.
Another view.

The GARTEMPE from the "Pont Vieux" bridge 15th 16th centuries.

The GARTEMPE valley concentrates from Montmorillon to Saint-Savin, in Vienne departement, several romanesque churches decorated with frescos of the 14th century, and is called for that, the FRESCOS VALLEY.

_ The GARTEMPE is a river of Poitou and of the Limousin, which takes its source close to the village of Pétillat, the commune of Peyrabout in the department of Creuse, and is thrown in the Creuse river close of "la Roche-Posay" in the department of Vienne, after a way of almost 204 kilometers in a catchment area of 3913 km². It crosses remarkable canyons in granitic landscapes, downstream from "Les Portes de l'Enfer", "The Doors of the Hell” to Lathus in Vienne. Description de la Gartempe.

MONTMORILLON is a french commune, located in the department of Vienne of the Poitou-Charentes area, populated of 6410 Montmorillonnais in 2009, divided on 57 km², that is to say 112.5 hab./km².

Of medieval origin, Montmorillon proposes to the visitors a broad inheritance, made of houses, private mansions, chapels, churches etc…

Hello Joel,
What a wonderful idea for a photo. Many people would have been satisfied with the beautiful scene of the town. By adding the array of flowers, you've made it superb. Congratulations, and thanks for sharing.
--William (Bill)

Bonjour Joël
Une bonne idée d'avoir incoporé en 1er plan ces fleurs colorées qui attirent le regard qui se porte ensuite sur les constructions anciennes intéressantes.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Hi Joel,
Great composition, the flowers add such a huge splash of colour and interest to what is already a beautiful scene. Really nicely seen and captured!
All the best

Hello Joël,
The lovely flowers really do make a splendid frame especially under this sympathetic ambient light. The fine perspective complemented by excellent colours and sharpness makes for a very agreeable photograph. Bravo!

Bonsoir Joël,

Les fleurs aideny au cadrage de l'image. La largeur de la rivière donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise d evue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des maisons. Le ciel nuageux donne un bon contraste aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

Pierre

Bonsoir, cher Joël,

La beauté en est magnifiée. Très belle et très intéressante réalisation.
Amitiés.

the colors are strongly contrasted which is also fine, soft light and ambiance.
nice work!

Bonsoir Joël,

Ces fleurs sont un feu d'artifices à elles seules ;0) Les pêcheurs doivent trouver leur bonheur dans cette belle rivière, large et au cours ici paisible. La photo et les workshops donnent une bonne idée de la vie tout aussi paisible et agréable qui semble régner à Montmorillon, et du charme de ses vieilles maisons !

Bonne soirée,

Sylvain

Ciao Joel
bella composizione, i fiori in primo piano danno colore alla foto, purtroppo la luce non era delle migliori, ma il risultato è piacevole, grazie anche al riflesso.
Saluti

Hello Joel - we're neighbors today! Your composition is lovely here, balancing the gray, cloudy scene with this burst of bright color from the flowers. They make a brilliant focal point but complement rather than take away from the buildings in BG. Nicely captured, and thanks!

Andrew

Hello Joel,
what a beautiful composition we have here. The bush of beautiful flowers in the FG are amazingly beautiful and eye catching image. Magnificent composition which is pleasure to look at. Perfectly well done. Thanks for sharing. Fantastic work. Thank you.
Warm regards,
Barbara

Joël

TOP CLASS post card, photo de toute beauté avec beaucoup d'élements remarquables. Superbe prise. Merci Joël!

Hi Joel,
Creative frame to show the background view through the potted plants at foreground, nice pink and red flowers that add more color to the dim view in a cloudy day, lovely old architectures by the river, thanks for sharing a beautiful village view.
Ally

Hi Joël,
A very beautiful and pleasant view here. The foreground flowers add both colours and depth to the picture. A very good contribution from your archive!
Kind regards

C'est une photo vraiment belle et très agréable!
J'adore surtout le pdv choisi, la compo (et ces reflets et ces fleurs-là) et les couleurs obtenues!
Merci du partage,

Salut Joel.
Une magnifique composition qui capture l'attention suffit d'ouvrir votre galerie, par la couleur et la beauté de ces fleurs au premier plan, le contraste avec la journée grise est fascinant, presque parfaire ces maisons construites sur la rive de la rivière.
Bel endroit, superbement capté.
Passez un bon après-midi.
Cordialement.
Luis.

Bonjour Joël
J'aime beaucoup cette image avec la partie centrale créant une symétrie soignée accompagnant à merveille le bouquet fleuri du premier plan avec ce beau rendu rouge rose.Je me suis toutefois permis de réaliser un petit WS afin d'éliminer l'arceau noir en haut à gauche.Il attire l’œil et gêne un peu la lecture de cette superbe image.
Bonne après-midi
Amicalement

Hello Joel,

This is attractive photograph, so it's interesting and impressive to see the quiet large river which flows through a peaceful village, stone-made houses with white wall and red wall, and the surrounding nature with greenery. It's very good impact in this picture for red/pink flower at right side. Well composed and excellent tone/clarity.

Kind regards,
mikio

Ciao Joel, lovely composition with beautiful flower in FG, great contrast against Grey sky, fascinating reflections, excellent perspective, beautiful light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Bonjour, cher ami Joël,
les fleurs roses et rouges dans l'avant-plan nous introduisent dans un beau paysage de la rivière et du village médiéval, dont l'architecture se détache sous un ciel gris et nuageux, qui illumine cependant l'ensemble avec efficacité.
La composition est très élégante et attractive, j'aime la luminosité et les couleurs de la photo.
Bien faite.
Bien amicalement,
Josep

Hi Joel!
The colourful geraniums really make a perfect foreground and they lead our eyes to the river and old houses in foreground. You framed the place very well and the light is also very good!

Hello Joel,

Bastille Day no less! And once again the French are fighting for liberty, egality & fraternity, but this time in Mali. I wish them every success. The flowering pink tree at right dominates the shot and contrasts well against the blue grey sky. Nice subtle reflections & superb sharpness. Merci pour ce partage!

Hello Joël,

Risky, such a large proportion of flowers
in the foreground, that can distract the
attention of the viewer. But how the
viewer watch the picture he or she ends
all the time by the surrounding (river
and buidling) and that means that you
have taken the picture from a very good
point of view and it has also a great
composition..... Good work.

Friendly regards,
Robert Alderliefste

Hello Joel,
I love this one - it is so bright an cheerful mostly thanks to these beautiful pink flowers in the foreground. Although they seem to dominate the composition, they do not spoli it. The building on the river bank still very clear and sharp- excellent DOF.
Well done!
Regards
Kamila
