Albi, overlooking the New Bridge, which spans the Tarn and the end of the bridge, Moulin-Neuf.
On the Tarn, a barge, a small flat boat once used to transport goods on the river bottom. It allows today to appreciate the beauties of Albi from the river, a walk over the very popular tourist water.
* The Pont Neuf:
It was built of stone and brick in 1868 with the arrival of the railroad.
It is also called the deck of 22 August 1944, due to the fierce battle that took place here between resistant and a German column coming from La Madeleine.
* Le Moulin Neuf, later called "Mills of the Albigensian"
A mill existed on this site in the thirteenth century. Transformed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, it became the seat of a flour mill after 1828 complemented by vermicellerie in 1845 After a boom period, the Corporation des Moulins in the Albigensian ceased activity in the 1970s.

Interesting bridge design for the trinity arches at each major arch connection, and high above the Tarn, enhanced by warm lighting and fine resolution of the town it connects.

Très jolie lumière sur ce célèbre pont d'Albi et sur cette gabarre reconvertie en piège à touristes.

Un format harmonieusement composé.La lumière est bonne,elle éclaire bien les différentes architectures en créant une bonne complémentarité de couleurs avec le bleu de ce ciel.Le cliché est bien exposé et j'apprécie cette gestion des ombres et des lumières.
