For the Love of Trees

Check out our new TREE GALLERY at mesmanimages.com , where we show off some of the  spectacular colors of Japanese Maples in different seasons, as well as some shots of trees along the Canal du Midi, in France.

Did you know that this popular canal was built all the way back in the 1600's by Pierre-Paul Riquet?  His waterway runs from the town of Sete on the Mediterannean to the town of Toulouse, where the Garonne River takes over and links to the Atlantic Ocean.  Sadly, Riquet never had the chance to see his massive work finished; he died eight months prior to its completion.
