An image done exactly at the junction of Rhône and Usses rivers.
The clean water id the one of Rhône river and the dusty one comes from Usses river
Winter here was surprisingly hot and almost snow free.
This image was done 2 days after Christmas, the weather was beautiful and this little castle was perfectly reflecting on the water of Rhône river.
Yesterday morning i returned to Arcine for some new images of Rhône river.
I spent the first hour of soft light with photos of the nice forest on the river banks and when the light became too strong, i stayed a little and played with the reflections on the water.
All my images of Rhône river ar here.
When i went to Surjoux to make images of Pain de Sucre waterfall, i noticed a little place with a nice point of view on the Rhône valley.
I came back a few weeks later by a rainy afternoon with short appearances of sun.
Weather was really awful when i arrived, so i first spent a long time driving all around to explore this part of the valley i don't know well.
When the rain stopped to fall continually, i returned to this place overhanging the river where i could make a short serie of images under the warm light of a few sunrays making the green forests really beautiful.
The complete serie was published yesterday on my french website.
Parnant river is a very small stream but it goes to the Rhône which is one of the biggest rivers in France.
After the junction the water will run a little more than 500 km to reach the Mediterranean sea in Provence.
An image from about one week ago, done from an old bridge (Pont de Grésin) crossing the Rhône river between Ain and Haute Savoie departments.
A green image from this morning.
I returned this morning to Parnant river. I left the place where i had done images about one week ago, walked to the Rhône river and followed it by a little path through the forest.
I walked to an old bridge named Pont de Grésin, stopped there for a few pictures and then explored the forest all around.
This photo was done from the bridge.
I've recently read that a famous french writer compared this part of the river to a Mississipi without crocodiles. I can't say if the comparison was right but at least there are no crocodiles !
