long shadows

It seems the sun is retreating rapidly these days.  The days are shorter and shorter and the shadows are getting longer and longer.  This sandy field is another example of how much the Loire has also retreated. In wetter times, this would be underwater while the treed area to the right would be an island.

    1. It's been an exceptionally dry year although we have had some rain this Fall, but the river level remains very low. Many stretches like this have been exposed for months. Hopefully this will not be a trend in coming years. It's been really tough on many of the farmers.

  2. France needs a good deal of rain and snow over the winter. Beautiful shot!
