A view at sunset of the Ardeche river and its gorges, which are actually a wonderful canyon - 35 kms long and 250 meters deep - the river dug for million years in a limestone plateau. This part of the gorges is placed at about half lenght of the canyon and its main feature is the rock formation visible on the left of the river, know as "La Cathédrale" for its vertical, sharp "spires". Just to give a sense of scale of this scene, the Cathedral is about 80 meters tall, and I took this picture from a natural balcony at about 200 mts above the river bed. The slice of sky reflected in the river is so sharp and striking, that it almost looks like a rift in the Earth that let one look out to the other side of the planet. This is a stitch of four horizontal frames.
