“Le Cévenol” rail route links Clermont Ferrand with Nimes and has 106 tunnels and many viaducts. Originally built to transport wine and opened in 1870, it still runs regular services through the stunning Haute-Loire and Cevennes countryside. You can read much more about this line on this post over on “The Enlightened Traveller.”
There are many abandoned stops on the line and this is a small halt between Brioude and Langeac, complete with old fireplace. The halt is a little way from the village as the line enters a deep cut at the village so the halt had to be placed a few hundred metres up the line.
This weeks photo challenge is “Trio”. This is a group of three gargoyles on the chevette of the Basilica in Brioude, which has recently been restored.
This was one of the first batch of photos taken with my new Nikon D33OO camera and a 35mm Nikon lenses. The detail it captures is amazing and allows for a lot of manipulation and cropping.
The original photo is as below.
Have a look at what other responses there has been to “Trio” over on the Daily Post blog.
