At least as well known for its grapes for his channel ...
The Corinth Canal is an artificial waterway dug across the Isthmus of Corinth in Greece, connecting the Gulf of Corinth, in the Ionian Sea to the west, the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea, east. The Corinth Canal is therefore the Peloponnese an island, since pierces right through the isthmus connecting the peninsula to the rest of Greece. The canal is 6,343 m long and 21 m wide. The trench has a maximum depth of 52 m for mooring of 8 meters. It avoids vessels less than 10 000 tonnes and 8 meters draft a long detour of 400 km around the peninsula.
It is currently used mainly by tourist vessels. About 11,000 ships use this route every year.

La longueur du canal de Corinthe donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des parois du canal. La lumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. La numérisation est réussie à l'exception du ciel qui a du bruit numérique et quelque saletés, bonne journée.

Hi Jean Philippe!
Lovely photo of the Corinth Canal.
Nothing has changed since 1993, as it is like you took this photo, today.
(I think the new bridge did not exist back in 1993).
It is a very familiar view for me, as I come from Peloponnese and I have lived also many years in Athens.
The voyage from Athens to my town in Peloponnese (and vice versa) was a routine.
But every time I passed the canal I got a glimpse down to the blue waters and every time I was thrilled by the spectacular view.
Thank you for bringing me all these memories watching your photo.
