*** CONTINUING SERIES ***

I invite you to join me in another series. This time we are investigating a small picturesque village, Rocamadour, buried deep in the French country-side of Quercy. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the series CLICK HERE.


Next episode ...............................................

We look down from the fortress into the courtyard of the religious city below. It is here we can see the vulnerablity of the pilgrims below in times of war.

The fortress is perched on a cliff edge rising out of the green canyon or the 'Dark Valley' of the river Alzou which you can see broiling far below.

The fortress protected both the pilgrims and their destination, as well as, the village far below from attack below and from the hilltop behind the fortified walls.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/125 second F/8.0 ISO 100 24 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!
