Photographer's Note

as i have already noted, Doubs is the river that crosses the city of Besancon. it makes a grate curve, like U, surrounding a high rocky collin, where is the old fortress (La Citadelle), and a grand flat area, where was built the old city, protected by the river. The only way to enter into the city, was one bridge, le pont Battant; today five bridges connect the old and the new city of Besancon.
in this photo you can see "le pont Battant"; as it is the oldest, it has one only arch, to avoid the danger of the force of the water in winter. on the wright side, the buildings of the late 18th century give a nice view to the entrance of the old city.

you can also see my other photos of Doubs:
