Colours of Roussillon

Oh my, what a shot! Taken in Roussillon, a small village in the Vaucluse department, in the Provence region. There are huge ochre deposits close to the old village which are truly amazing. For centuries, houses in Roussillon have been built using this close at hand material. Their facades are displaying crazy colours, withvivid variations of yellows and reds. Go see it, as I don’t think there are a lot of other places like this in France!
