I don't want to give the impression (which I may have given with my previous posting) that the landscape of the Corbières resembles Burgundy or Bordeaux. It is really pretty wild country and the vineyards are few and far between only where man has managed to wrestle a few acres of brushland away from nature. This gorge is quite typical of the rugged country of the foothills of the Pyrenees. And the vievs from every turn and every new valley are astonishing.
I have cropped and resized only - and it must be noted that this is one taken from the bike as I drove through.

Nice landscape picture Per and it looks very wild indeed. I like the angle with the road in the lover right leading the eye to the bridge. Nice effect with the white clouds against the blue mountain in the background.

Nice shot Per. I know this region rather well (I even biked there myself some 15 years ago). Nice colors and nicely framed, considering you took this while tearing through the landscape.

Now that looked like my kind of thumbnail, Per, and I'm happy to report that the picture looks like my kind of nature view, too ;-) A very wild and scenic view of this canyon; I like the small cascades at the right, and you made a good composition of this tunnel-like view. Contrast is very pronounced but it looks good. Nicely topped by the sky and fluffy clouds. A gorgeous shot, thanks for sharing.

Very nice landscape of the Pyrenees. I like this road that lead to the bridge. Also, the cloudy sky is very nice! Well done!
