Photo Opportunities in Nouvelle Aquitaine

Having nearly exhausted the photo opportunities close to home (from Medoc, Bordeaux & Sud Gironde) - I was hoping that some of you ‘snappers’ might be kind enough to recommend places a little farther afield in the region that might provide some interesting and visually striking subjects for my Blog. Although Bordeaux never ceases to surprise with new and previously undiscovered gems we do enjoy the occasional trip into the far flung corners of Gironde, Lot-et-Garonne and Landes.

Among many other things l particularly enjoy photographing Chateaux, old doors, windmills, moulin, abandoned cars and farm machinery. We also love the rivers, canals, lakes and boats as well as the beautiful landscapes on offer across this part of the country. To give you an idea l have included a few pictures.




yes…idea for you.

near Bergerac perhaps wait a month or so.

If you like rivers, then try the road which takes you over the suspension bridge over the La Tardes/Le Cher. From Evaux les bains head for chambonchard, but take a turning on the left just outside Evaux, heading for Mazirat. The turning for the suspension bridge is a couple of KM down the road on the left.

We drove over the bridge and up onto higher ground where you can get stunning views, especially in the summer of the winding river.

Thanks for your interest Natalie - Unfortunately a 780 kilometre round trip is a little too far - l was hoping for suggestions a little nearer home - 33,47,24,40.
