Pro France with the Provence!

posted on 18th of september, 2013

One of my favorite countries in Europe is France. I must admit I wasn't very keen on France till I visited its most beautiful area: the Provence.
Here's an impression of the Southern part of France, known for it's lavender fields (near Sault).

Due to their terrific climat, this part of France produces loads of different fruits and vegetables. You find all sorts of fresh produce on the local markets. The presentation of these products is excellent and for photographers like me there is a lot of "work" to do.

Someone must have a full time job stacking biscuits like these:

When you say Provence, you say Colors. The local products like pottery and textile are have traditional patterns and always bright colors:

I have a couple of more Provence files pending so might get back once these are online.
