Salut Loc,

Cet arbre me dit quelque chose, je crois l'avoir vu sur d'autres photos, notamment de sebline... Superbes couleurs et bon choix de cadrage.

Bon week-end,

Sylvain

Default To marabu61: Thanks

Daniel, thanks for your comments. The view is indeed spectacular; sadly, you are unlikely to get that view yourself soon. It is taken from the tower at Fort Revere (see here
for a distant view of the tower). That tower is over 100 years old (although there has been a tower there for longer than that, and the hill has been used for observation for about 400 years), and in 1976 the French gave a commemorative table to Hull (for the 200th anniversary of U.S. independence) which was placed in the observation deck on top of the tower. Unfortunately, it is a *very* *very* heavy table, and has actually caused structural damage to the tower. The town and state are currently figuring out what to do about that, but in the mean time the tower is closed. I just happened to be in the park yesterday, and struck up a conversation with a man who as his recreation maintains the park. He has the keys to the tower and took me up. It was a pretty amazing set of views from up there.

Roger
