A clam, peaceful river leads its way past the half-timbered houses at dusk.


Petite-France is a hugely popular historic area of Strasbourg, and one of the city’s main tourist attractions. Petite-France is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and The River Ill flows through the city and splits into multiple channels, one of which can be seen in this shot. The narrow lanes, footbridges, river-side paths, and half-timbered buildings create a romantic and very photogenic setting.
