Strasbourg, Ill., a tributary of the Rhine.
While the Rhine flows through the city of Basel, separating into two neighborhoods "Lesser Basel" and "Grossbasel," it flows to the east of Strasbourg and separates this place two countries, France and Germany.
This river is often correlated with the city and is sometimes confused with the river flowing within it: Illinois.
The Ill traverses the plain of Alsace from South to North.
It rises in the Alsatian Jura Winkel and flows into the Rhine north of Strasbourg.
Trapped between the Rhine and the Vosges Piedmont, this river is fed by all the Vosges rivers, from south to north. (Photo No. II)
Well, that's curious!
As the Alsace departments (Haut-Rhin and Bas-Rhin) took the name of the neighboring river, the Rhine, Alsace has the name of the river running through it.
Indeed, Alsace Germanic language means "Land of the Ill"

The wonderful sky makes a superb backdrop for this lovely photograph. I like very much the point of view and the framing offered by the bridge railings. And, that wonderful long perspective down to the focal point offered by the half-timbered building. Top class technical presentation, a real delight for the eyes. Just a pity, I have no more smilies to give out.

Your colours are so vibrant in this beautifully composed photo - the sandy browns and terracotta are gentle and warming. Wonderful!
All the best,

Good afternoon Magaly,
Fabulous view of the Ill, view to the length of the canal, that runs along the nice park on left.
I remember the exact place, with a slight different sight: whene we were there early June - the flower baskets on the green iron-railing were filled with the newly blooming flowers.
lavish beautiful green surrounding, and very well collected photo.

you had very nice and sunny weather and you managed the light really well achieving bright and rich colors not only on the landscape but also on the sky which gives very good background to the scene. Well chosen POV which uses the green fence as a framing for the image and the river as an eye leading element of the composition.
Thanks for sharing

una Strasburgo un po' diversa da quella classica che siamo abituati a vedere nelle altre fotografie.
Una composizione assai piacevole e soprattutto caratteristiche tecniche di ottimo livello con luminosità, contrasto e colori perfettamente calibrati.
Ciao e buona serata

Très belle vue sur l'Ill et ses maisons riveraines. La présence de la rampe verte en avant-plan donne un bel effet à l'image. Excellente netteté. Bien fait.
