Stones and Cobbles in Provence, France
Happy New Year to ALL!
Recently I took a trip with my family to the Provence region in Southern France. While there, we spent a bit of time visiting many of the hill-top villages in the Luberon countryside. The Lubron is a spectacular collection of vineyards and orchards, fascinating perched hill-top villages, and outstanding rolling vistas which has inspired artists such as Van Gogh and Cezanne. The region is famous for its comfortable and easy way of life as well as its rich history.
The stone architecture of the hilltop villages was fabulous, so of course I returned home with hundreds of photos. I will try to post a few of the shots today in a series I will call “Stones and Cobbles”. When possible, I will try to recall the exact village where the image was captured.
This first one is an HDR image from the village of Gordes. It was captured as 3 handheld images and merged with Photomatix Pro, then touched up with Aperture.
