Eymet is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine in southwestern France. A bastide town, Eymet is situated in the Périgord region, on the river Dropt.
The Bastide was founded in 1270, by Alphonse de Poitiers, Count of Toulouse and brother of Louis IX of France. It still retains the remains of its feudal chateau and arcaded square.
The village is situated at the extreme south of the Department of Dordogne on the CD933 between Bergerac and Marmande. It is around 20 km south of Bergerac, and around 100 km east of Bordeaux.
It is notable as a popular location for British expatriates living in France, who account for a third of the local population. British television viewers may remember seeing the town and some of its residents in the ITV1 programme 'Little England', a series of reality TV programmes describing the life of various ex-pat UK citizens now living in the Dordogne, with an emphasis on Eymet. The first series of twelve episodes was first shown shown in autumn 2011. A second shorter series was broadcast in 2012.

idyllic and peaceful looking place. Can see why Brits like it. Long time since I have visited this region of France, your lovely shot makes me realise I should explore its beauty again soon.
Enjoy the weekend - regards Brian.

Nice subtle reflections and natural looking pastel colours with good sharpness and superb composition using the rule of thirds. I like how the reflected arches of the bridge appear to complete a set of 'eyes'. Tfs!

It's nice to look at beautiful autumn view, as outside the window the snow and frost.
Excellent POV and DOF, nice colors.
Have a nice weekend

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. La rivière offre une belle diagonale dans l'image et apporte de la profondeur à l'ensemble. Le pont est très beau.

It is a beautiful place and the soft light has given pleasing reflections in the river, whilst the colours are very natural.
I notice that you have taken the trouble to place the bridge and the lamp in strong positions, according to the rules of composition. Well done.
Have you had the same wet and quite disagreeable weather in France, as we have in England, over the last year?
My warm regards,

The reflections on the water are assets to the compostion. The trees are framing well the bridge. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the bridge. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Smart choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the reflections and bridge Good graphism against the blue sky with splendid sharpness

Good morning Stephen,
The fine daylight contributed a marvelous "eyes-glasses" reflection on the bridge.
Picture space has good allocation's, between river and forest on side, and sky's.
Lovely calm location, well shown.
