Truly a classic: Pont du Gard

Looking up from the river bed.
Looking down from a viewpoint on a nearby path.

These could have been from anytime in the past two millennia.

The Pont du Gard is so old and classic, in the antiquities classic way, that I couldn’t resist giving a black and white conversion a try. If you’d like to compare, I posted it in color on my other web site: Real golden Arches: Pont du Gard.

I use the Gnu Image Manipulation Program (a.k.a., the GIMP) with the Nik plug in for the conversion. If you are interesting in using the GIMP for black and white I have a post about how to do it: Black and white digital photo processing using the GIMP.

    1. Wish I’d had more time to soak it in. And yet I am so glad I had the chance to see it for real. The walk from the river bed, across the bridge and up the trail on the other side really gave a sense of how big the bridge is and how much effort went into constructing it.
