Falling Water Levels: the Seine.

The water level of the Seine has gradually been going down the past week. The roads running along the side of the Seine have reopened, pedestrians can walk along the quais, things are getting back to normal.

At the request of a few people I took a few pictures from the same view point during the week so that you get could a sense of how the water levels have been changing.

Here is a view from the Pont Neuf looking towards Saint-Michel on the rive gauche.



Here is a view of the Vert Galant, the western tip of the Île de la Cité.


And finally, here is a view also taken from the Pont Neuf, this time looking towards the Île de la Cité and the Conciergerie.



Next time we have a drought, I need to take more photos to get the full picture!

More photos of the 2016 flood waters can be seen here.
