Only recently I bought a bike and could not wait to explore the Vilaine in the direction south of Rennes.  It is still April, the weather does not yet know whether to serve spring or winter. Well, as long as it does not rain a ride on the bike is fun and clouds are good for a dramatic sky. I made it beyond Les Etangs d’Apigné, lakes in the southwest of Rennes. There is a restaurant there to have a coffee.

Not only the weather, also the trees, are more in winter than in spring. All the details of the branches and twigs and their reflection in the river, the mistles in the trees – they make me wish to be a painter and capture the scene with my own interpretation, adding light and shadows at my will. Well, being a photographer is not that bad.

It is not only nature that gets ready for spring, also boats cannot wait to go on tour again and their owners get them ready.


And the little houses of the locks, the sluices, are waiting to let the boats travel along the river, help them to climb the water way.
