The Noir Suites will have to take a break – simply because my picture making does not catch up with my posting. (Again!) However, production is up and and running, and there will be a couple of new scenes soon. As for tody here’s a Landscape with Car.
Roussillon is famous for its red and ocher rocks which have been used for making pigments for centuries. Our walk took us along the sentier des ochres (first three pictures), then to the old town of Roussillon where, not surprisingly, most buildings were painted in reds and ochres.
There is also a place they call Colorado de Rustrel – a bit off Roussillon so it was not really part of the walk (but it fits into this post’s theme, pictures five and six).
However, l’usine d’ocre Mathieu (Mathieu’s ochre factory) is so close to Roussillon’s town centre that it can be visited on foot (last three pictures).
… if you enjoyed this walk, make sure to visit Jo’s Monday Walks for stories from all around our world.
The Shipping Forecast is actually a service by BBC Radio, apparently well known in Britain. Here‘s a link in case you are curious.
Magic Letters: W is for water.
This picture was made last year, and scanned, and then put aside. I stumbled upon it when I looked for panoramas for Paula’s Black and White Sunday – and realized (yet again) that it sometimes takes me a while to come to appreciate a picture.
