winter colors, Sorbs

One view.
Another view.

In the Sorbs municipality, on the limestone plateau LARZAC, the winter colors on the Sorbs castle.

The castle of Sorbs of 14th 16th 17th centuries on the "CAUSSE du LARZAC". The castle appears as a quadrangle with four towers of angle. Classified as "Historic Monument". Private property.

_ The CAUSSE of LARZAC is vastest and southernmost of "GRANDS CAUSSES", large causses. Its 1000 km ² of plateau rise from 600 to 900 meters. It is limited to the North-East by Dourbie river which separates it from "Causse Noir", in the North-West the Tarn river separates it from the plateau of Lévézou, in the west it stops with the depression of Roquefort. Its surface is strewn with famous sites with the military orders, Knights of the Order of the Temple and Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem.

_ The GRANDS CAUSSES, in the south of the Massif Central, are delimited in north by the plateau of "Aubrac", in the east by the Cévennes, the south by the plain of the "lodévois", in the west by the plateau of "Lévézou". These are plateaus limestones whose altitude varies from 700 to 1250 meters of altitude, and of surface going up to 1000 km². The "Grands Causses" are formed by important "Causses of Larzac" (1000 km²), of "Sauveterre" (550 km²), "Méjean" (330 km²), and "Noir" (200 km²), but also of the causses "Comtal", "Rouge" and of "Sévérac", and many small peripheral causses like causses of "Mende", "Blandas", "Changefèges", "Bégon", etc… No waterway circulates on the surface of the plates, because the rainwater infiltrates in the karstic, generating networks of many swallow-holes and caves, to re-appear in the valleys. Geology of causses and the cévennes.

SORBS is a French commune, located in the department of Hérault of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 36 Sorbois in 2009, distributed on 20.2 km², is 1.8 hab./km².

The municipality of Sorbs consists of four hamlets.

Situated on the Causse du Larzac, the municipality of Sorbs is close to the Parc naturel régional des Grands Causses.

Hi Joel,
Another great shot of this interesting architecture. The stone wall captured in the foreground created a really nice diagonal look of the composition. Well seen and done. TFS.

Best,
Gosia

Bonjour Joël,

La distance entre le mur de pierres et le château donne de la profondeur à l'image. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails etb les couleurs du château de Sorbs. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Pierre

Ciao Joel
oggi proponi una bella foto ricca di colori brillanti, di belle archietetture e cielo e neve a volontà.
Trovo buona l'idea di mettere in primo piano il muro fatto di pietra perchè riesce a disegnare una bella cornice variopinta che fa da contrapposizione all'azzurro del cielo.
Molto belli i colori e buona la nitidezza.
Molto interessanti anche le note
Ciao e buona giornata
Romano

Hello Joël

quel mur de vielle pierres, superbe ces plans de neige et de pierre et le village le tout avec un superbe ciel aux belles formes, grandiose.
Bravo et amitié
Nicou

Hi Joël,
Beautiful buildings! The stone wall provides a nice frame for this winter view and a contrast against the blue sky above. But I assume that the snow has already disappeared now, it can't be that cold now so far south.
Kind regards
Gunnar

Bonjour Joël,

Bonne utilisation du mur de pierres sèches, au premier plan, et de la contreplongée pour illustrer la position stratégique, légèrement en hauteur, occupée par ce château. La neige et les nuages dans le ciel se marient bien et forment un ensemble harmonieux !

Bon week-end,

Sylvain

Hello Joël,

I like snow, it has something what I cann't explain,
but it's beautiful. Picture has bright and warm
colors. The layers in the picture creates a nice
depth and the composition is also very good.

Salut Joel,
ce mur contraste et donne un bon avant plan à ta présentation, jolie lumière sur ce paysage enneigé, belle valorisation de la présentation de ce château.

Salut Joel.
Superbe cette architecture rurale, qui acquiert un charme particulier aux champs de neige, j'aime ce jeu mur de pierre horizontale au premier plan, et nous voyons que les bâtiments annexes de grande taille, un beau ciel est un bon complément à ce beau travail.
Superbe netteté et une bonne lumière.
Bien fait. Je l'aime.
Profitez du week-end.
Meilleurs vœux.
Luis.

Bonjour Joel
Une vue plus éloignée qui fonctionne bien avec le mur de pierres, l'espace blanc et un ciel magnifique, très belle présentation
Une critique d'une "vielle" amie du nord :-)))

Bonjour Joel, très bonne image de cette composition intéressante, je ici dans le sud presque ne le remarque pas, mais à en juger par l'image que vous accrocher, c'est un dur hiver à travers l'Europe. Image intéressante avec un très bon pov et de très bonne qualité. très bon et intéressant bien fait, bravo mon ami. Merci de partager ce beau travail.

Bonne nuit et bon dimanche.
Salutations et bonne chance à partir du sud de l'Espagne.
Angel.

Hi Joël,
quite a remarkable castle with that strange tower.
Excellent composition and perfect light and colours.
regards, Gerrit

Bonjour Joel,
a superb idea to place the castle in the middle of the frame creating great depth and an interesting foreground while the contrasting sky has become a wonderful backdrop. The colours and their combination make the view very attractive, the sharp textures exalt its naturalness and vividness. The weak and sweet winter light has been handled effectively keeping its special quality and creating a sweet and melancholic atmosphere. Of the lovely workshop pictures I like No2 the best. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,
Ourania

Bonsoir Joël
Ici j'apprécie beaucoup l'orientation de la lumière rendant bien les reliefs de l'architecture à l'arrière plan.Belle harmonie en douceur des teintes avec le bleu de ce ciel.
Bonne soirée
Amicalement

Great view of the castle, with magnificent and attractive shapes. The whiteness all around contrasts well with the walls and sky, forming a great picture, which called my attention. Good work, congratulations!

Hi Joel
what can i say about this one? the longer i look at it, the more and more i enjoy the colors, the lighting, and the stones.
its great to see how the light has struck the facades of the building.
very attractive lighting.
enjoy your day
