Magic waters

Contre-canal du RhôneJust two kilometres upstream from the city, the river banks offer an incredibly green and peaceful setting. No doubt that spirits inhabit those magical waters. Make a wish, it might come true!

A deux kilomètres en amont de la ville, les bords de rivière offrent un cadre de verdure incroyablement reposant. Nul doute que dans ces eaux vivent des esprits magiques. Faites un voeu, il se réalisera peut-être ?

These are beautiful as always!

Ok, I'm making a wish, but I can't say what for... Hard to believe this is so close to a big city, although, not really, in Philadelphia there is still some pretty wild land along the Schuykil River that runs right through the city, and that is a far bigger city than Avignon...

Beautiful reflections... ok, now we'll see if that wish comes true... to see just how magical they are... :-D (humming : Ain't Superstitious)

BIEN CHÈRE NATHALIE, JE N'AIME PAS CONTREDIRE LA JOURNALISTE MAIS JE CROIS QUE LES FÉES HABITENT DESSOUS LES CHAMPIGNONS MAIS OK LES DEUX AUSSI DANS CES EAUX MAGIQUES AUSSI

Magnifique....

Meri said...

Looks like a perfect place to paint (as well as photograph). Those shots are splendid.

I think whenever you put an s on water, it becomes magical.

Un voeu, dis-tu, Oh s'il y en avait qu'un !
Dis, ya pas de moustiques au bord de l'eau ? Si oui ce charmant endroit n'est pas pour moi, si non, j'y ferais bien une tite sieste. Bon wouik Nahtalie.

Your blog always lifts my spirits! Now this is just what the doctor ordered - make a wish. Well I have and I'm sure it will come true looking at your beautiful photographs. Big kiss Nathalie xxx

Avignon said...

Oui, ça le fait !
Est-ce en Barthelasse, en Courtine ou côté Gard ?

POKER FACE said...

That's really wonderfull photo,like a mirror

Photo sublime, on croirait voir la surface de l'eau se troubler sous l'effet d'un apparition imminente !

Un endroit idéal pour "le songe d'une nuit d'été", à condition que la musique des petits vampires ailés ne viennent pas transformer le rêve en cauchemar. Et ça, c'est pas gagné !

@Avignon : c'est écrit "à deux kilomètres en amont de la ville", donc pas en Courtine. Même si on préfère les images, il faut lire le texte. ;-)

Voeu fait!
Merci de m'avoir donné l'occasion parce que ça fait un moment que je ne trouve pas de trêfles à 4 feuilles...

So soft and textured. And the blue and green together will be a great backdrop for wedding photos!

Thérèse said...

Voeu écologique, il va de soi.

Bonjour! Nathalie,
Once again, What very beautiful photographs. Merci! for sharing, all the information about the cicadas.
Oh! the (male and female) cicadas, is/are very interesting indeed!...because I have never seen a cicadas "upclose"
before!...Wow! look at those eyes!...
...they do look like green turquoise stones.
Nathalie said,"I am usually hopeless at finding cicadas, they are amazingly good at camouflaging on tree bark..."
Nathalie, that is amazing!...
...Great shot!

DeeDee ;-D

By the way, I must admit that I posted this comment yesterday, but
I lost it!...Therefore, I decided to try again today...if at first you don't succeed, try, try...
