Photographer's Note

Roussillon lies within the Parc Naturel Régional du Luberon. It is noted for its large ochre deposits found in the clay surrounding the village.

Ochres are pigments ranging from yellow and orange to red. One of the former ochre quarries can be visited via the "Sentier des Ocres" (Ochre Path), a walk of either 30 or 60 minutes through the old workings.

There's something magically mysterious about those colourful rocks.
