Summer in France
My daughter and I spent five weeks in a small village in the south of France. In the above photo the sun is coming up over a vineyard. What appears to be a morning mist is actually a cloud of sulfur which is sprayed to protect the grapes from fungus.
One morning in July I took the pictures below of a group of french teenagers who spend part of the summer working with Franc, a master stonemason. The program is called Ramparts and small groups of teenager restore archeological sites. The location was a beautiful spot above the vineyards and beneath a massive, ancient pine tree. The ruins were roman, well over a thousand years old. In some places the original dry stone walls were still intact and perfectly straight.
