Among the clear and murky waters of the canal you can see the reflections of the sky and the trees. It was a beautiful day.

The Damme Canal (French: Canal de Damme. Dutch: Damse Vaart or Napoleonvaart) is a canal in the Belgian province of West Flanders. The canal links Bruges with the Western Scheldt at Sluis, Netherlands. It was constructed on the orders of Napoleon Bonaparte who wished to create a canal network in order to permit the efficient transport of troops without the risk of disruptive interventions from the British navy.

I take no responsibility for the map on the right. This is, of course, nowhere near the Jordaan, which is on the other side of the historic center. But I have no control over the denotation the map chooses.

Aveiro está al sur de Oporto sobre la ría de Aveiro, a escasos kilómetros del océano Atlántico.

Tiene una población aproximada de 50.000 habitantes. Parte de la ciudad está llena de canales, puentes y barcos pintados llamados "moliceiros", similares a las góndolas venecianas.

Por eso también es denomina "Venecia portuguesa".

Aveiro is south of Porto on the Ria de Aveiro, a few kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean.

It has a population of approximately 50,000 inhabitants. Part of the city is full of canals, bridges, and painted boats called "moliceiros", similar to the venetian gondolas.

That is why it is also called "Portuguese Venice".

Le canal de l'Espierres a été construit de 1840 à 1843 afin de relier la Deûle à l’Escaut. Le but de ce canal était d’approvisionner en eau et en charbon Lille-Roubaix-Tourcoing. Pendant plus de cent ans, le canal de l’Espierres a contribué à l’essor économique de la région. La pratique de la pêche se fait à partir d’Estaimpuis et Leers-Nord parce que les eaux y sont meilleures.

the river Somme was for centuries considered a strategic route for navigation inland to Picardy and Paris, potentially faster and more reliable than the Seine, particularly for trade with England. The first comprehensive plan for canalisation was produced in 1729. The meandering river was not easily tamed, however, and the Intendant of Picardy reporting in 1763 found the navigation to be in a ‘pitiful state’. Complete canalisation was authorised under Louis XVI in 1785, but works were interrupted by the Revolution. The project revived by Napoleon in 1810 included a ‘ship canal’ (canal maritime) between Saint-Valery-sur-Somme and Abbeville. The waterway was opened to navigation above Abbeville in 1827, while the ship canal was completed in 1835. Locks were 34 m by 6.25 m wide, later enlarged to Freycinet dimensions. The two locks on the section incorporated in the Canal du Nord were rebuilt in 1964 to the dimensions adopted for that project, 90 by 6 m. The canal was among the first to be conceded to a local authority, in this case the Somme département, in 1992, but the concession was limited to the section west of Péronne.

Before Sunrise.

A cold winter walk along the Basingstoke Canal at Odiham. The sun was low in the sky and there was a vague mist on the air, dust particles and much as anything, which caught the sunlight. Despite this there were still reflections in the canal. People's breath was visible and everything had a not unpleasant brown tinge. I decided to frame this which I don't often do, as I felt it had qualities of a Constable.

El Canal de Beagle es un estrecho o paso marítimo entre los Países de Argentina y Chile. Se encuentra ubicado al Sur de la "Provincia de Tierra del Fuego, Antártida e Islas del Atlántico Sur" en la República Argentina, específicamente en la Ciudad de Ushuaia.

 

Es uno de los paseos más maravillosos que se pueden realizar durante una estadía en el fin del mundo por su majestuosa belleza y su increíble paisaje.

 

DATOS DEL CANAL DE BEAGLE

 

El nombre de este canal fue otorgado en homenaje al barco “HMS Beagle”, el cual realizó un estudio de las costas entre 1826 y 1830, al mando de Phillip King. Ya en 1833 se llevó a cabo un segundo viaje con este barco, pero esta vez bajo las directrices del Capitán Fitz Roy. En esta segunda expedición, viajaba en el mencionado barco... Charles Darwin.

 

El ancho promedio del Canal Beagle es de 2 millas naúticas y tiene dos angosturas mínimas: de 3,5 y 7,5 cables. Las mayores profundidades se presentan en la zona occidental. En la parte media, frente a la Bahía de Ushuaia, es de aproximadamente 200 metros.

 

En toda su extensión tiene varias islas o islotes. En el lado Argentino se encuentran Redonda, Bridges, Estorbo, Gable, Becasses, Yunque y Martillo.

 

Su origen se debe a las últimas fases de las glaciaciones cuaternarias, resultado del avance glaciar que finalizó en la Cordillera de Darwin, avanzando por el valle longitudinal. Se destaca su perfil transversal en forma de letra “U” y la presencia de morrenas laterales e islas rocosas, pulidas por la acción del hielo.
