Barques oranges bleues et vertes dans le canal de Sète

It is the ninth of July 2016. While I was travelling between Marseille and Toulouse, I decided to make a stop in Sète, a maritime city that is halfway there. This city, on the Mediterranean coast, was part of my daily life a few years ago. So the idea of finding its canals, its basins and its maritime atmosphere delights me.

Arrived in the city center, I park at the edge of the canal, quai de l’Aspirant Herber. Therefore I am immediately in the desired atmosphere. In addition the light is powerful with the sun at its zenith. Ideal conditions to take some representative photos of this city that I like.

So I head to the first street perpendicular to the wharf, rue Richelieu. A warehouse is at the end of this small street, its gate is open. I take my first picture, all the colors are gathered with the Saint Louis lighthouse in the background (see above). After that the mooring office is a little further away, isolated. So this will be the second photo (see below).
