Middle mountain, Saint-Sauveur-Camprieu

One view.
Another view.

In the CÉVENNES, chalets in Saint-Sauveur-Camprieu.

_ The CÉVENNES are mountains, part of the Massif-Central, extending in the districts of Lozère and Gard, whose culminating points are the peak of Finiels in Lozère to 1699 m, the AIGOUAL MOUNT in Gard with 1567 m.

_ The MOUNT AIGOUAL is a granitic mountain, culminating point to 1567 m of Gard and second culminating point of Lozere after the mount Lozere 1699 m, is a south-eastern projection of the Massif-Central mountain. It is remarkable by its panorama, its climatology. In clear weather, one discovers on 300 km of ray, the Mediterranean, the mount Lozere, the Mounts of the Cantal, the Pyrenees, the Alps.
One discovers there the top close of Portalet of 1565 m, and of course the large causses and the surrounding Cevennes.
The watershed between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean crosses the summit part. Several rivers take there their source of which Herault.

SAINT-SAUVEUR-CAMPRIEU is a French commune, located in the department of the Gard of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 270 Candrivains in 2009, distributed on 31.7 km², that is to say 8.5 hab./km².

Saint-Sauveur-Camprieu history.

Near the Mount-Aigoual, to 1100 m of altitude, the village has a climate of medium mountains, and is surrounded by an immense forest of conifers and beeches.

The village of Saint-Sauveur-Camprieu is less known than his natural site: the Abîme de BRAMABIAU.
_ A small brook named Bonheur, (happiness), resulting from a source close to the Pass of Serreyrède not far from the Mount-Aigoual, is lost after a course of 5 km, in Causse of Camprieu in several underground courses of a few kilometers, before arising with the free air by a 70 m height diaclase. It then takes the name of "Bramabiau", the ox which slab, (le "boeuf qui brame" in occitan), to point out the deaf noise of water leaving the breach.
_ It is in Bramabiau that with its team, Edouard-Alfred MARTEL, 1859-1938, its career of speleologist started, exploring the cave in the night from the 27 to June 28, 1888.

Saint-Sauveur-Camprieu is in the Parc National des Cévennes.

Bonjour Joël,

Exactly a post-card about these nice area, with a virgin snow carpet.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Lovely composition, excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Amicalement, et bonne journée,
John.

Salut Joel,
Très beau paysage enneigé, un blanc bien rendu comme ce bleu, bonne gestion de la forte réverbération.

Bonjour Joël,

La distance entre les maisons et les montagnes donne de la profondeur à la compostion. Le principe des tiers est respecté. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des maisons et des montagnes. La lumière réfléchie par la neige a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Pierre

Bonjour Joel,

Nous avons aussi notre Saint Sauveur au Québec et lui aussi se trouve dans une région de montagnes de neige et de ski. Par contre il est devenu très touristique ce qui parfais peut faire passer l'endroit de charmant à déplaisant.
Une belle photo de qualité sur un superbe paysage de neige.

Amicalement

Serge

Ciao Joel
questa è una composizione di gran classe che si fa subito notare per la perfetta disposizione degli elementi che si susseguono in piani ben separati dando forte evidenza al paesdaggio ed in particolare alle abitazioni ed agli alberi, sovrastati dall'azzurro intenso del cielo, mentre, nello stesso tempo, sembrano galleggiare su un bianco mantello di neve.
Ciao e buona giornata
Romano

Bonsoir Joel,
very nice winter landscape here. Great sky you had. I like the colours. Well informations and complementary WS.
Have a nice evening.
Aleksander

Hi Joël,
The touch of brown-red colours from the wooden houses bring a special accent to this very wintry landscape, where white snow and blue sky are the dominating colours. A very pleasant picture. This looks like the perfect place for cross country skiing.
Kind regards
Gunnar

Hello Joel
Wonderful composition with the deep blue clear sky and the white foreground separated by the middle layer of the houses and the gently rolling hills. Lovely colours. I think the exposure is managed very well here. Thanks for sharing.
With regards
Satya

Bonsoir Joël,

Cette photo me rappelle les immenses étendues neigeuses du Québec... Les chalets sont bien placés à l'avant-plan, et la vue est formidablement dégagée sur la forêt de conifères, saupoudrée de neige !

Bonne soirée,

Sylvain

Bonsoir Joel,

Hello Joel,

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the field and middle mountain with snow. It's tasteful for the color contrast of the snow field and blue sky, too.

Kind regards,

Bonjour, cher ami Joël,
une efficace combinaison de cette belle architecture de montagne avec un joli paysage enneigé, dans une composition bien structurée.
J'aime le grand contraste de la blancheur de la neige, les tons chauds des chalets en bois, les verts de la forêt, et le magnifique bleu du ciel.
C'est un travail superbe.
Bien amicalement,
Josep
