The Pont du Gard (the bridge over the Gard River) is an astounding feat of Roman ingenuity. It is an aqueduct that ran for 50km and provided the town of Nîmes with water (and subsequently, prosperity) in the 1st century AD. I got up early and braved the misty country laneways and was rewarded with a sunrise I’ll never forget!

    Beautiful and outstanding control over the light Mieke, just love that golden tinged hue of early morning light showcasing the mahnificent structure as the water sits quiet and tranquil below. You can just gain the quietude from the photo alone.
