Already in 2001 we had the Pont du Gard in the south of France, a Roman aqueduct from the 1st century AD. visited and photographed with a Canon Powershot G1. The aqueduct is imposing and has other impressive features besides its height of almost 50 meters. For example, it is structured in three levels. These have the following dimensions:
Lower level: 6 arches, 142 m long, 6 m wide, 22 m high. Middle level: 11 arches, 242 m long, 4 m wide, 20 m high. Upper level: 35 arches, 275 m long, 3 m wide, 7 m high
The water was conducted on the top level.
It is one of the best preserved Roman-era water canals in France. Its name means bridge over the Gard, a river now called the Gardon. The aqueduct carried an aqueduct about 50 km long to the Roman city of Nemausus (now Nîmes).
We were lucky with the weather and this time we were able to photograph the Pont du Gard as a reflection in the river of the same name, the Gard or Gardon, and also decorated with a beautiful rainbow.
For comparison, we also show the recordings from 2001 in this article.
