Saint-Rome de Berlières church, Fondamente

Saint-Rome de Berlières hamlet.
The small cemetery close to the chapel.

The romanesque Saint-Rome de Berlières chapel, in the Fondamente commune.

Until the 18th century, 1793, it was the Saint-Rome de Berlières parish church, Montpaon commune chapel, and now Fondamente commune chapel since 1987.

FONDAMENTE is a french commune, located in the department of Aveyron of the Midi-Pyrénées area, populated of 287 Fondamentois in 2004, distributed out of 51 km², that is to say 6 hab./km².

In the commune of Fondamente, exist two villages: Montpaon and Saint-Maurice-de-Sorgues.

The Commune of Fondamente formerly named Montpaon, was renamed in 1987.

The lands of Montpaon are mentioned at the 11th century, baronnie lords, under the protection of bishop of Rodez, and whose castle was ruined at the 17th century on order of Richelieu.

ORB river and SORGUES river are the principal waterways which cross the commune of Fondamente.

_ The ORB, coastal river, takes its source at 828 meters of altitude, close to the site “Font d'Orb”, in limit of the communes of Cornus in Aveyron departement, and Romiguières in Hérault departement, in dolomitic limestones of "Causse du Larzac". It runs in the departement of Aveyron, then in the department of Hérault, and flows in the Mediterranean sea at Valras-Plage, after a course of 136 km, and the crossing of a catchment area of 1580 km². Its flow can pass from a minimal flow of 1.4 m³/s to a maximum flow of 1630 m³/s. Orb river description.

Hi Joel,
I really like this shot. The Saint-Rome de Berlières chapel is placed very well. The colors are amazing, and that sky is gorgeous. Many thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Malgorzata

Hello Joël,
A fine image depicting this lovely and unusual church, that has more of the allure of a castle. The tall trees provide a splendid counterbalance to the tower. I like the framing offered by the wall that progresses on a slight diagonal across the frame. The picture benefits from good light, colours and sharpness.

Oi Joel ,
Beleza esta igreja com estas árvores laterais , bem antiga a sua construção devido as paredes em pedra , bom primeiro plano com o muro , belo céu tem um belo azul ,bons WS , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Bonjour Joël,

Une autre ravissante chapelle romane magnifiquement présentée avec les deux cyprès qui la décorent et une belle perspective largement ouvrete sur le paysage valloné. Le mur oblique strucure très bien la composition.
Amitiés et excellent WE,
Roger

Bonjour Joël,

Le mur de pierre et les arbres cadrent bien l'église. la prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture de l'église Saint-Rome de Berlières. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bon weekend.

Bonjour Joel

Une belle image. Beau bâtiment couvert de lierre, à l'ombre de très beaux arbres au milieu d'une campagne calme et reposante.

Bon weekend

Bonjour Joël,
Cette petite église romane semble s'appuyer sur les deux cyprès de service qui montent la garde dans ce paysage sauvage et déserté.
Il y a des trésors d'architectures dans les campagnes qui valent le détour.

Greetings Joel,

A woinderful piece of composition, lifts this work above the ordinary in terms of historícl photographs. The old wall forms a lovely daigonal line across the foreground, and the tree is a reaö framing element for the church. As always, wonderful management of the colours and cotrasts. Thanks and regards, Iain

Numeri delle foto ...un bel gesto,
Tutti grandi successi
Ami gli spazi liberi ...le costruzioni i cui contorni e confini siano netti.
Una grande competenza e meticolosità nel non alterare la realtà .

Hello Joël,

Les cyprès accentuent la beauté de l'image, quel rendu sur ce pierre, quel églis romane simple d'architecture, avec sa touffe de lierre sur le toit, la belle daigonale du mur, quelle mise en valeur, sueprbe.

Bravo et amitié

Nicou
