A view of the Ardeche river and its gorges, which are actually a wonderful canyon - 35 kms long and 250 meters deep - the river dug for millions of years in a limestone plateau..this is another view of the Cirque de la Madeleine, the "horse-shoe-like" bend of the Ardeche river, this time viewed from beside..I took this picture on a late afternoon, about a hour and half before sunset, from a natural balcony atop a vertical cliff about 200 meters high. The structures clearly visible in the middle of the picture are the ruins of a leper hospital, built in the XII century by the Templar Knights, who chose this place for its wilderness and inaccessibility..Taken on a late afternoon at the beginning of July. This is a stitch of 6 horizontal takes.
