Photographer's Note

Flac-sur-Seugne is a French commune in the dpartement of Charente-Maritime, region Poitou-Charentes
It is entirely located on the right bank of the Seugne, around 5.5 kilometres south of the small town of Pons. Essentially a rural commune, with an economy based on viticulture and agriculture, it has in recent years been transforming itself into a place of residence for people working in Pons. The population in 1992 was 295, in 2007 it had grown to 342, giving a density of 41 Flacais per square kilometre based on an overall surface area of 8.28 square kilometres.

Geographically, the commune can be divided into two distinct areas. In the west, the valley of the Seugne where the main village is located, grassland predominates and is often flooded during winter months. To the east, a plateau rises quite steeply, which is characterised by the planting of vines, used in the production of cognac and Pineau des Charentes, and the growing of cereal crops. The average altitude varies from 11 metres at its lowest point in the valley of the Seugne to a high point of 56 metres in a wooded area in the south-east of the commune known as le bois de Sainte-Hermine.
