Pont du Gard

By Gary_Williams  
The very impressive Pont du Gard in the soth of France, just outside Avignon.

This wonderful Roman aqueduct, feel free to quote the line 'What have the Romans ever don for us...", in the south of France. A beautiful site and well worth a visit if you are in that nect of the woods. Listed a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1985.

Exposure 1/30s @ f14 (ISO 200)

Feel free to comment or critique.

Cheers,

Gary

'All right, I'll grant you that the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the Romans have done...
And the roads... Well yes obviously the roads... the roads go without saying. But apart from the aqueduct, the sanitation and the roads... Irrigation... Medicine... Education... Health...
Yes... all right, fair enough... And the wine...' LOL! - well you did say 'feel free to quote' Smile

Superb shot of the viaduct Gary, perfectly processed as usual!
