Photographer's Note

Aux marges du Berry, la Brenne était une zone marécageuse infertile. Ne sachant qu'y faire pousser, les moines, au XIIe siècle, eurent l'idée d'y emprisonner les eaux et de créer de longs chapelets d'étangs. C'est l'aspect le plus frappant du paysage tel qu'on le voit aujourd'hui.

On the edge of Berry, the Brenne was a marshy area infertile. Not knowing what to grow, the monks in the twelfth century, had the idea to trap water and create long strings of ponds. This is the most striking aspect of the landscape as seen today.
