Description


-o§o- This photo was also taken in this wonderful region of Provence, this time next to the village of Roussillon, in the former open-pit ochre quarries, where the cliffs are streaked with red and gold at the heart of an area extending over 25 kms. Ochre extraction and mining reached a peak in the 1930s, as ochre was used for its pigmentary properties in sectors as varied as art, masonry, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
-o§o- The contrasts between the red and gold colours and the green of the pinewood forest here and there nearby was a great moment of fascination for me and all those who have nicknamed the area the ... 'Provençal Colorado' for quite some time !...
-o§o- Thank you so much for your supportive comments on my latest Provençal photo taken in Lourmarin, have a nice weekend everyone, and stay safe...Please zoom in for more atmospheric details!

Wow, that is a splendid composition of orange and green, all aided of course by your friend, the sun, making it all richer and warmer. You have a remarkable eye for the delightful :)

Je comprends fort bien ta fascination pour cet endroit magique! Quelle beauté ! La nature nous donne tellement de raisons de nous émerveiller... et nous la remercions tellement mal en la saccageant et la polluant. Grace à toi et cette photo, grâce lui est enfin rendue! Merci pour ce beau partage

J'ai eu l'occasion de leur dire qu'ils ne devraient pas appeler ce magnifique endroit "colorado provençal", d'une part en raison de la taille réduite et, d'autre part, parce qu'ils n’ont pas besoin d'une référence états-unienne pour le promouvoir...je suis un peu chatouilleux parfois ! Mais revenons à ta photo qui est de toute beauté.

Quel magnifique endroit, les tons chauds de l'ocre mis en valeur par l'écrin de verdure sont une merveille. Je remercie le photographe de nous offrir de si beaux paysages, la nature nous gâte mais il faut aussi savoir la capturer !! Superbe image !!

L'ocre est magnifique avec toutes ses teintes possible, j'adore ce coin de nature que j'ai visité plusieurs fois. Je ne m'en lasse jamais. Très jolie photo.

Magnifique photo, moi j'adore la Provence, ce qui m'enerve un peu c'est le vent, on est jamais bien coiffée labas (sur tout dans le village des bories avec ses arbres d'olives tordues par le vent)!!

Boah! Dieser Kontrast zwischen den roten Felsen und den grünen Bäumen! So etwas Grandioses muss man einfach mit der Kamera einfangen. Ich würde mir jedenfalls mein Leben lang Vorwürfe machen, hätte ich so eine fantastische Szene verpasst! Wie immer Kopfkino und Augenfutter! Fantastisch gemacht! Ich wünsche dir und deinen Lieben ein frohes Fest und ein gutes neues Jahr!
