Always from "Cap-Gris-Nez" in France... :)

www.dherreman.com/cap-gris-nez-france-5

 

It is between Wissant (Whitesand - originally Witzand) and Audresselles (originally Auderzele), in the commune of Audinghen (Odingham).

The cliffs of the Cap are the closest point of France to England - 34 km (21 miles) from their English counterparts at Dover. Smothered in sea pinks and thrift, the cliffs are a perfect vantage point to see hundreds of ships from oil tankers to little fishing trawlers plying the waters below. On a clear day, the emblematic white cliffs of Dover on the English shore can be seen. (wikipedia)

Another test !!!

Landscape is a very hard new experience for me... :)

I've got a lot of admiration for some of my contacts (hope they will recognize themselves...!!) who are so good at the amazing art of landscape. I'm training every day, walking in the country and I hope to make some progress and educate to my eyes to look the "wide angle" way, a so interesting and exciting challenge !!! :)

  

Captured without any filter. This is not an HDR, but processed by LR.

The more I use Lightroom, the more I enjoy to use :)

Pourquoi "Gones" ? Un "Gone" est le surnom donné à un habitant de Lyon. Certes, ils ne sont pas - au sens exact du terme - de Lyon, mais n'étant qu'à 25km du centre-ville, on peut considérer que nous avons tous un peu de "Gone" en nous :)

Bavella massif, Corsica, France

 

"Bavella is a highlight of the corsican mountain. For a very good reason : fon one side the mountain pass, and on the other side the forest. It summarizes itself the particularities of the island relief, with dramatic rock formation and colours from most delicate red to the darkest grey and all “sprinkled” with giant Laricio pines."

Pyrenees HRP 2011 - Day 16: The blue progression from "Golden Recession", made 90 minutes later as daylight became established at Lac Gentau.

Uno de los convoyes turísticos del Tren del País Cátaro y des Fenouillèdes, concretamente un Automotor "Caravelle".

 

Esta línea, un pequeño ramal de 64 kilómetros construido por la Compañía del Midí en 1883, perdió sus servicios de viajeros en 1939. Desde entonces mantenía un precario servicio de mercancías que fue suspendido completamente a finales de 2009.

 

La asociación “Train du Pays Cathare et des Fenouillèdes” (TPCF), creada por un grupo de aficionados al ferrocarril en 1993, se propuso desarrollar trenes turísticos sobre esta línea infrautilizada, lo cual se comenzó a hacer realidad entre los años 2000 y 2004. El mantenimiento de la línea está a cargo de SNCF Resseau.

 

El tren turístico del País Cátaro y Fenouillèdes recorre el trayecto desde Ribesaltes, en el departamento de Pyrénées Orientales, a Axat, en el departamento de l'Aude, en dos horas y cuarenta minutos, bordeando en la mayor parte de su recorrido el río Aude y circulando por paisajes de gran belleza, además de avistar en diversos puntos del trayecto hermosos y legendarios castillos Cátaros, siempre coronando montañas de imposible acceso, como el de Queribus o el de Peyrepertuse.

 

Decir también que, desde el año 2011, TPCF opera además un servicio de mercancías en esta línea. Se trata de un convoy que funciona diversos días de la semana para transportar mercancías de las fábricas de "La Provençale" y "Imerys", y los trenes son traccionados por locomotoras Vossloh G1206.

Shot in Pont Aven - Bretagne - France -

 

Pont-Aven is mainly known because of the group of artists who flocked round Émile Bernard and Paul Gauguin, and who were joined in 1888 by Paul Sérusier. They were collectively known as "Pont-Aven School" (French: École de Pont-Aven, Breton: Skol Pont-Aven).

 

Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art(PASCA) is an international fine arts program located in the historic artists' colony of Pont-Aven (Brittany, France). The student body is made up of third- year university or art college honors students or post-baccalaureate art majors (fourth/fifth-year) seeking further study.

 

Pont Aven still attracts artist and art lovers with many commercial galleries in addition to the town's public gallery.

Das Cap Blanc-Nez (Blanc-Nez „weiße Nase“) ist eine Landspitze an Frankreichs Ärmelkanalküste, die in diesem Bereich Côte d’Opale genannt wird, Es befindet sich südlich von Calais. Zusammen mit dem Cap Gris-Nez bildet es die „Gegend der zwei Kaps“ (Site de deux Caps), die im Süden von Boulogne-sur-Mer abgeschlossen wird.

 

Das Cap Blanc-Nez besteht aus Kreidegestein und Mergel und hat steil abfallende Seiten zum Meer. Es zählt zu den "Grand sites de France' seit 2011.Die Höhe der Felsen beträgt 134 m.

 

Entlang der gesamten Küste weisen zahlreiche Gedenksteine und Monumente auf die Schrecken des Ersten und Zweiten Weltkriegs hin.

Die Spuren an diesem strategisch wichtigen Ort sind auch anhand einer Bunkeranlage auf dem Gipfel des Cap Blanc-Nez und zahlreichen, noch immer gut sichtbaren Bombenkratern erkennbar...Mahnmale unserer Geschichte...

De Dunquerque à Berck s'étend le paysage sauvage de la Cote d'Opale dessiné par des falaises escarpées, des valées crantées et un chapelet de dunes.

La Corniche de la Cote d'Opale, aussi nommée Terre des Deux Caps, car elle reunit le Cap Blanc-Nez et le Cap Gris-Nez, en est la partie la plus spectaculaire. Grand site de France depuis 2011, la Terre des Deux Caps marque la transition entre dunes et falaises.

Cap Blanc-Nez:

Reconnaisable de loin, surmonté d l'obélisque de la Dover Patrol,

qui fut erigé enmémoire des marins fancais et anglais morts pendant la Première Guerre mondiale en défendant le détroit du Pas-de-Calais.

Du haut du Cap, le spectacle est vertiginieux : la masse verticale de la falaise, à 134 m de haut, surplombe le 'pas' et son trafic incessant de navires.

_______

 

Cap Blanc-Nez (literally "Cape White Nose" in English) is a cape on the Côte d'Opale, in the Pas-de-Calais département, in northern France. The cliffs of chalk are very similar to the white cliffs of Dover at the other side of the Channel in England. Cap Blanc-Nez does not protrude into the sea like a typical cape, but is a high point where a chalk ridge has been truncated by the sea, forming a cliff that is topped by the obelisk of the Dover Patrol Monument, commemorating the Dover Patrol which kept the Channel free from U-boats during World War I.

 

Cap Blanc-Nez was a vital measuring point for the eighteenth-century trigonometric survey linking the Paris Observatory with the Royal Greenwich Observatory. Sightings were made across the English Channel to Dover Castle and Fairlight Windmill on the South Downs. This Anglo-French Survey was led in England by General William Roy.
