Village of Saint-Véran, in the canyon of Dourbie river, under the Causse Noir.

One sight
Other sight

The village of Saint-Véran of which architecture is typical of Causses, is dominated by the castle which belonged to the family of the Marquis Louis Joseph of MONTCALM, Lord of Saint-Véran born on February 28, 1712 with the castle of Candiac close to Nimes, and died in the combat on September 14, 1759 in front of town of Quebec in Canada.

The village dominates the church Notre-Dame des Treilles of Romanesque style of XIIe century.

Dourbie is a Cevennes river. It takes its source at 1300 m, in Linguas in the south of the solid mass of Aigoual, in the Gard district.
It also runs in the department of Aveyron and is thrown, after 920 m of unevenness and 96 km of course through throats and valleys between le Causse Noir and le Causse of Larzac, in Millau in the Tarn near the bridge of Cureplat at 320 m, itself flow from the Garonne.
Its irregular and seasonal course with known the minimal flow of 2,9 cubic meters a second, to reach up to 728 cubic mètres a second maximum flow.
Dourbie is famous near the trout fishermen.

La Roque-Sainte-Marguerite is a french commune, located in the department of Aveyron of the Midi-Pyrenees area, populated of 172 Margueritois, divided on 50 km², that is to say 3 hab./km².

The commune is made up of 3 villages: La Roque, in the valley of Dourbie river; Saint-Véran, cradle of the family of Montcalm, on the buttresses of Causse Noir and Pierrefiche on Causse of Larzac.

Hi Joel,
Great shot from this picturesque place with excellent workshop. The composition is very spectacular and the environment is amazing. Really romantic place, I like it very much. Thank you for sharing. Have a nice day!

Hi Joel,
I've never heard of or seen this place before, so thanks for posting about it! It's a very simple composition, but it allows us to take in both the scale of the place and it's surroundings which is great. Some lovely browns, reds and yellows from the foliage below too.
best wishes
Lee

Bonjour Joël,
Très belle vue de cette ville perchée sur la montagne et les rochers avec son petit château. Un lieu très attrayant et parfaitement décorée par la chute. Excellente perspective et les détails.
Amicalement,
Charo

Joel, this is a fine shot, it makes my imagination race with thinking about what it would have looked like when it was still occupied. Great detail and color, and a superb capture.

Greg

Joel,
Great shot of this hill top village. Your composition is great including the autumn colored foliage in the foreground. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The great blue sky provides a nice backdrop for the shot.
TFS,
Asa

Bonsoir Joel
Bien situer le village au sommet de la colline et joliment entourer d'arbres aux jolies couleurs d'automne, belles images complémentaires en WS

Passe une belle soirée

Salut Joel,
Belle vue de ce village perché.
J'aime bien le cadre naturel, même si j'aurai peut-être monter le contraste d'un cran.
Bonne soirée,
JB.

Ciao Joel,
Favolosa rocca e bellissime casette sotto di essa. La natura che la circonda si e' messo il bel vestito colorato dell'autunno.
ottimo lavoro
Giorgio

Bonsoir Joel
Un beau petit bout de nature bien habillé par les feuillages colorés de l'automne.Je crois que je l'aurais dans un format type pano pour avoir un peu moins de ciel.Je constate que le S3IS a un très bon rendu de couleurs en paysage.
Bonne soirée à toi
Amicalement

Bonjour Joël,

Je vois une belle intégration nature/homme. À photo il montre qu'il ne faut pas d'agresser la nature pour pouvoir construire. J'aime voir ces maisons entre les arbres. Très jolie!

Hello Joel,
nice the scene with this rock formation and the castle on its top.The houses of the Saint-Véran village that surrounded from the greenery, as the complementary shot make the scene so picturesque and great.Well done.

Have a nice afternoon,Danos

ce petit village de pierres perché dans sa montagne,avec son chateau qui domine ,possède un charme fou!Le point de vue en contre-plongée met parfaitement ce site en valeur;et les couleurs automnales réhaussent la beauté du lieu,surtout qu'en plus,le ciel est bien bleu!C'est magnifique,ça donne vraiment envie de visiter cette région!
