Not a hill


I've had to amend this post because one of the comments informed me that the geographical feature in the photo is not, in fact, a hill but a slagheap. Apparently, there's plenty of them all around Liege but the coal mines that created them have been shut for a long time and the heaps have bean claimed by nature. Thanks Anne!

Therefore, this is one of the numerous slagheaps around Liege, photographed from the Pont d'Amercoeur.

Almost looks a little like Paris - except for the hill. Nice shot, Greg!

Ce ne sont pas à proprement parler des "collines" Greg, ce sont des terrils, ancien dépot de déchets qui provenaient des charbonnages, tous fermés aujourd'hui; ces terrils sont maintenant boisés.

Superbe photo, merci pour ce blog … :-)

Look like a slag heap put to good use. Sure adds to the nice view you photographed.
