France and Italy, 2004

Uzès, Part 1

We stayed a week in Uzès, and took many photos. So we have three pages. This one shows things seem travelling from St Paul to Uzès, the second page shows photos of Uzès itself, and the third page shows things seen on trips from Uzès.

Leaving St Paul, we travelled along the Route Napoleon, following the road he took before his brief return to power in 1814. The road goes aross the grain of the country, with many passes and spectacular rock formations. The European sky holds contrails for a long time and the polarising lens helps deepen the beautiful blues.

Shortly after leaving the Route Napoleon to cut across Provence towards Avignon and Uzès, we passed the extraordinary Rochers des Mées.

Shortly before reaching Uzès, we visited the Roman Pont du Gard acqueduct: 2000 years old and still standing firm.

A scorching day but the aqueduct was very impressive.
