A week of summer in the French Mountains.
Photos from last summer in the mountains in the South of France. With all the work I’ve got on at the moment, and with summer hinting it’s on its way, my mind keeps wandering off to this place. With endless light and shadow (my favourite) to photograph, scenic landscapes and fragile but colourful flowers at every corner, it’s not hard to understand why.
Not to mention that when you live in a city you see ‘nature’ as the patch of grass and trees of the park, with the occasional spring flower. Nature for me is more of a calm state of mind, removed from everyday life and stresses- hence why I need to go all the way up (very thin windy roads) into the mountains to experience it. It’s like the piece of your mind that you can’t quite get to in the city.
Just a few more months and I can visit this corner – of France and of my mind – again.
