Picture challenge “Africa of the Parc des Oiseaux” until September 2nd
“During the dizzying, fascinating, vertical climb, you get a view of the birds from above. 15–20m above ground, the viewing platforms raise you above the canopy to discover and absorb the singularities of the local ecosystem. The Tower emerges from the treetops, giving you a spectacularly stark change of scenery – a bird’s eye view of an ocean of greenery.
The ultimate reward for your efforts is the magnificent spectacle that unfolds before your very eyes: your gaze floats over the infinite space and landscapes of the Dombes, accentuated by Mont Blanc. You become one with the landscape, with the birds and with nature, in a timeless voyage from the earth to the sky.
It would seem as though time stops for the communion of man, bird and land. With your head in the clouds and your feet firmly on the Dombes earth, you will go through different emotions on each level of the Tower.”
