Thank You Iolar! But why reminds it you your Latin lessons at school? Is it because of the bridge or an other story?

Yes, the Romans built it, it was a part of a 50 km long canal from Úzes to the city of Nimes, and it's also add by The World Heritage Site of Unesco.

Thanks for your kind comments Worldvision. Some great pictures in your collection from all around Europe. Particularly liked this one of the majestic Roman aqueduct for the framing and warm colours and the boats!

This is my absolutely favorite of my collection, and I didn't photoshop (or something else) this picture!

Salut Joclo,

Merci pour sa compliment, je découvre que belle la photo est, si j'étais rentrée á ma maison, je n'avais pas pensé cela!!

C'est amusant que vous utilisez 'y', parce que j'apprends cela á l'école maintenant! (Je ne sais pas ou j'ai écrit bien quelques mots)

Amicalement de Pays-Bas,

Sandu

Salut, Sandu ! Vous avez très bien compris que j'ai utilisé "y" pour remplacer "le Pont du Gard"; Bonne continuation dans vos études de Français. Et bonjour de France et du Périgorg en particulier!

Thank you, Aminul!

This picture was a one-second moment, if you understand what I mean: If I was a second later with taking this picture the photo was totally different.

Greetings from The Netherlands,
