Photographer's Note

This is the village of Tuchan in the department of Aude in the southwest of France. The mountain in the background is Mt. Tauch. This is the heart of the Corbières region for winelovers and the land of the Cathars for those interested in medieval European history. Geographically it is the foothills of the Pyrenees and climatically it is the sunniest region of France (more than 300 days of sunshine every year).
This shot wwas taken in the early morning with a low sun down the main street and ominous clouds over the mountain. Slight contrast adjustments with PS and cropping.
