France, la mort des Platanes du Canal du Midi, ici encore bordé d'arbres près de Capestang

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Tutelary shadow of a centuries-old heritage, the plane trees that line the 42,000 some 240 km from the Canal du Midi will be sacrificed. Plagued since 2006 by an incurable disease by the name of Ceratocystis platani, the tree canopy is now the subject of logging plans and campaigns for replanting by the government to try to save its ranking in world heritage , decided by the UNESCO in 1996.

Hello. Urszula. Thank you for your visit and to estimate my photos. Yes I like the Panasonic I 3, (the DMC-FZ20 DMC-FZ18 and DMC-TZ6) that gives me satisfaction above all the photos taken at the Maxi Zoom in 18 times x4, taken over 4km. I have make a test with a NIKON COOLPIX P500, which disappointed by my lack of relief and sharpness of images.

Best regards of city Narbonne, France. Roger.
