another view of the tunnel


I first posted a photo of this tunnel looking in the other direction, out towards the Loire (see it here).  The light at the end of the tunnel in this photo is where there is a spillway from the Amasse river.  When heavy rains arrive, the excess water spills over and takes a shortcut to the Loire and thus avoids flooding downtown Amboise.  The tunnel is 700 meters in length (almost half a mile)!

  5. This shot makes me feel a little claustrophobic Stuart, the reflections in the other are much more calming :)
