Photographer's Note

Taken near Bar sur Aube in the Aube departement
in the champagne ardenne region-
''The area is bordered on the west by trays as Tardenois and Brie forming a curved cuesta from the Seine (to the south), in the Oise (north). At the end of this cuesta, limestone dominates the plains on which is concentrated most of the Champagne vineyards. To the north lies the Ardennes massif, culminating to 505 m altitude in the French part. To the southeast, there is the Langres plateau (450 m to 550 m). In the east, rise the high terraces of Jurassic limestone of the Côtes bar (350 m to 400 m), the highest plateau barrois 405 m at Mount Gilmont. Plateaux and limestone hills are studded highlights numerous caves and hills, typical of karst topography. In Champagne-Ardenne, forests have an important place with massive forest of Auberive or Arc-en-Barrois in Haute-Marne (forest areas covering 40% of the Haute-Marne territory).Three large alluvial rivers run through it from east to west: the Aisne (tributary of the Oise), Marne and Aube (tributaries of the Seine).''
