Photographer's Note

As the ghastly weather here continues, I’m doing my best to keep posting some sunnier shots! Here is a view that I enjoyed last Sunday during my visit to the wonderful region of Languedoc…

This is the “ghost town” of Celles, situated on the shores of the Lac du Salagou. The town was expropriated in the 1970s due to the creation of the lake, though in fact the water level did not rise to the expected level and the town was spared. At present there are two families living in the town while the surrounding buildings remain fenced off.

I might have tried to include all of the boat but there was someone sitting next to it, well installed in a deck chair so I settled for this view. The intense, saturated colours are due to the bright sunshine and I did not do any PP to enhance them.
