This artificial island created in 1831 was turned into a Japanese style garden in 1983. The layout of the rockeries and waterfalls intertwine 3 Japanese inspired buildings. The “Maison de L’Erdre” encloses a Zen garden and serves as a venue for river-life exhibitions. It is possible to hire an electric-powered boat (licence not required), or a canoe to see the parts of Erdre river non-reachable by road.

a beautiful urban corner with many trees. I liked the houses ahead and these details shown here.

The yellow green vegetation contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and superb reflections in the water. I like the repetition of the white buoys creating a demarcation for parking spots for the boats. Bon semaine!

This is a very nice view. The trees show us many shades of green and yellow and the red details of the well placed boat add more brightness. The quay and the line of buoys provide fine diagonals, and the buoys also lead my eyes towards the houses seen in the background. The colours and light are very good.

a very well composed photo with great depth and clarity. I like very much the colours and the reflections, this place looks quiet and delightful. The role of the light is amazing, there are amazing variations in lighting and it seems palpable. There's great drama in the sky too and the clouds seem to be shifting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

beautiful little nook of the river you show us here, I'm in love with zen gardens:)) The sky light is quite harsh but you couldn't help it whereas the exaggerated sharpness is all your fault:) We don't usually see every single leaf on a tree, do we?;)

It is a very serene shot with the rowing boat in the FG and the typical French architecture in the BG. Vibrant colour hues and high sharpness as well. Good photo job
