Lunas and Lunas history.

LUNAS is a french municipality, located in the department of Hérault of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 651 Lunassiens in 2009, distributed out of 44.9 km², that is to say 14.5 hab./km².

The territory of the Lunas municipality is crossed by the ORB coastal river, including one of its tributaries, the Gravezon, through the village.

_ 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 1585 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.

_ 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.

Bonjour Joel,

Une photo qui contient beaucoup d'informations, un très beau jeu d'ombre et de lumière, surtout au niveau de la croix sur le mur.

Bon dimanche

Serge

Bonjour Joël,

La lumière donne un bel ombrage de la crois sur le mur de l'immeuble. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la croix. La bonne luminosité valorise les couleurs de l'image. Bon dimanche.

Bonjour Joël
Jolie place de village avec cette croix. Les lumières sont bien équilibrées, avec cependant un poil de surex sur la façade de gauche. peut-être que recadrer au ras de l'immeuble et obtenir un format vertical était une option possible?
Mes amitiés
Laurent

Bonjour Joel,
Un très bon point de vue sur le village avec un excellent cadrage. Superbe la croix et son ombre sur la façade. Bravo!
Amicalement,
Gigi.

Bonjour, cher Joël,
Vous êtes, cher Joël, un véritable conteur du Languedoc-Roussillon à travers vos magnifiques réalisations.
Ce n'est pas de la flagornerie, mais un constat. J'apprécie toujours autant vos compositions qui nous font découvrir des lieux qui fleurent bon la France.
Mille mercis.
Amitiés.
Philippe
