Photographer's Note

Like the mill previously posted on TE, here is another fantasy. I had fun playing with the light, I thought the sun this hot late afternoon gave a nice terrain landscape ...

I posted a B & W Workshops on release.

The picture is taken in Lautrec in the Tarn, a little way below the old mill ...

According: http://www.fontaine-lautrec.com/region_tarn.htm

"This place was already known to the Romans, who had taken advantage of its dominant position decorated with a large reserve of groundwater and a lovely mild climate.
The village itself was organized around the year one thousand (940) around a fortress in its highest point (the Montlausin) just above the mill of La Salette (wind mill completely restored).
In the 12th century, a wall with 8 fortified gates are erected around the village. Some beautiful vestiges remain today, including the door "of Caussade."
For the record, the painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was the illustrious descendant of the viscounts of Lautrec.
Lautrec boasts charming streets with half-timbered houses, narrow passages, its open-air theater; the Collegiate Church of Saint Rémy (14th century); its indoor hall (15th century).
Many hiking trails are listed at the Tourist Office.
An old railway track now converted into a hiking trail along the bottom of the village and connects Castres to Albi.
Production known worldwide: Garlic Rose de Lautrec is causing many recipes that came in the regional gastronomic repertoire. "
