A pleasant spot for an inexpensive al-fresco lunch out of the heat of the day.
Beaucaire is a commune in the Gard department in Languedoc-Roussillon in southern France. Located on the Rhône River, it sits opposite the town of Tarascon (photographs of which I have already posted), which is in Bouches-du-Rhône department of Provence,.
In Roman times, Beaucaire was sited along the Via Domitia, the first Roman road built in Gaul.

I like the fg shadow play and dappled light. Good sharpness and the big tree makes a fine focal point. The people at right add scale and animate the shot. Good shadow detail and I like the partial backlight. Tfs!

Beautiful corner in town, a place under the big tree shaded square.
nice managed the variable light here, contrast of green and there is a colorful butterfly hang on a branch.

the dappled light gives the image a very pleasant feeling,it really does appear a perfect location for a cuppa.
The muted colours are delightful,most appropriate for the scene.

a nice view of the open air restaurant. The tree is picturesque which gives a nice light and shade effect here. The red chairs are eye catching. A very good one. Tfs.

That is one impressive and slightly weird looking tree! I guess that the tree has been there before the village and its ended up in a perfect position to provide shade for the people in the square below. The light and shadow it throws are superb too.
Thanks as always

What a lovely place for drinking an cup of coffee, under the nice shadow of the big tree.
A lovely old architecture with the façade in background.
Subject and colours are lovely, also very nice quality.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

un albero magnifico, domina la piazza in modo fantastico, le persone sono veramente piccole al suo confronto.
Bella la composizione, c'è un bel gioco di luci e ombre con le belle facciate a fare da sfondo.

Nice effect of the shadows through the branches. I like the calm mood of the small square.
Have a nice weekend.

Magnifique l'ampleur de cet arbre qui fait un décor magnifique a cette jolie place, belle lumière avec de très jolis détails et couleurs

Hello Stephen - I love the way the tree dominates this shot. You have positioned it perfectly and it's presence eclipses all the other fine details here. Its branches reach out both vertically and horizontally and its shadows dapple the scene. A friend to all who sit under its branches and enjoy the shade it provides. A super shot of a delightful corner of the town. Warm regards Rosemary

hai la poeculiarità di essere molto bravo nello scovare questi paesini tranquilli lontani dalle coste nei quali la vita sembra scorrere tranquilla, sia dentro le case che nelle piazze.
Per questa località hai scelto un'ora durante la quale la maggior parte delle persone stavano in casa ed i locali semivuoti rendono l'atmosferaancora più suggestiva.
I colori sono quelli tuoi soliti, molto morbidi e scarsi nei contrasti e trasformano la foto in qualcosa di simile ad un quadro.
Ottima la composizione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Hello Stephen, I missed so many beautiful photos of yours! If it is a place for an inexpensive lunch, it is fantastic place. How nice it must be to sit ina hot day in the shadow of this old platan tree. Splendid atmosphere of the lasy summer day.
Have a beautiful day Malgo

Enjoy your week-end,

I love this impressive tree and the way you've used it in your composition. We see a lot around it but the tree itself doesn't fit in the frame and its actual size remains a mystery:) The buildings are simple, picturesque and elegant. The bright colours become calm and subdued in the shade. The dappled light adds interest and the atmosphere is peaceful and agreeable. Besides describing the place, you're showing us quite effectively how pleasant this shade is on a really warm day. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,
