We are still in this wonderful village that has so many treasures that it became difficult to choose!
After being mounted on top the surrounding hills are emerging, the surroundings of Strings, fields, vineyards and all those houses lost in the green, I will let you discover more in my next post!

Hello Odile.

Another rustic scene, full of countryside tones and olden type stoneworks. I like the cobbled path on the left but more would have been pleasing. The centre tree in contrast to the buildings and the extending countryside is so attractive. It helps to split the image into layers and the eye hurdlers to each area. Very welldone Odile, France has much character such as this to offer. TFS

Stv :))

Another beautiful shot with such lovely light and sharpness, Odilé!

The wall leads the viewer's eye to a landscape at far, and also adds depth in here.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and colors are original.
Well caught exposure and clarity in the scene.

Bonsoir Odile

I like the muted colors here. Subtle warm cold colour contrasts between the blue & red. Superb sharpness & framing, with a glimpse of the green meadows & fields beyond. Tfs!

Hi Odile,
Very natural colors in this landscape shot presented in this vertical frame. Nice warm lighting handled with perfect management.
The fields at the BG are giving a certain depth into the perspective. A nice sky and a peaceful ambient.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier
