In the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Haut Languedoc, in the Sidobre Chaos Balme near the town of Saint Salvy in the Tarn.
The tray is integrated Sidobre in the Natural Park of Haut Languedoc , east of Castres , at an average altitude of about 600 meters. Its particularity is to be born of a geological upheaval, there are some 300 million years (approximately ) ! ...
Formed after cooling of magma, and combined with the work of erosion , the granite consists subsoil gave birth to rock the original forms. Long deprived area , this secret Sidobre strange geological features has been a source of legends and mysteries ...
In Sidobre called chaos a pile of granite balls accumulated by the work of erosion, and stretching over several hundred meters. In other words, a river of rocks ...
Over time, the boulders were stuck against each other and , however, taking a few precautions , you can move on its surface. Sometimes, you can slide between rocks which form a small cave called " Balme " in the region.
A creek, Lignon , flows under stones , carrying sand from the granite of the slow decomposition of the rock. Walking on the chaos , you can hear the Lignon sink or cascading through the amplified sound from the cavities through which it passes .

Ca ressemble comme deux gouttes d'eau à un site légendaire de la Bretagne, les chaos du Huelgoat ! Il se dégage une vraie magie de ces endroits et je ne doute pas qu'il y a nombre de légendes expliquant l'origine de ces chaos. Une belle lumière en tout cas sur cette image et une bonne netteté.

When I saw this, at first, I thought it was the Valley of Boulders, Huelgoat.
The boulders are certainly large, as testified by the trees. I like how you have constrained interest on the boulders by ensuring that they are encircled by trees. The textural details are excellent whilst the shadows of the trees help to reveal the contours of the various boulders.
My warm regards,

Toujours difficile d'immortaliser un tel site... l'image semble manquer d'échelle et semble un peu plate... un autre point du vue aurait été préférable... mais bon ce n'était peut être pas possible.
En tous les cas les couleurs sont superbes.

Fine view of Nature's granite boulder, moss encrusted jumble, surrounded with deciduous tree limbs. And in good resolution and natural color.
Thanks for sharing,

I like this place with its chaotic atmosphere and untidiness - the nature sometimes is not so much in order as we would like :-) The boulders have very interesting shapes and the moss on them makes them look softer. I like the trees which help to frame the composition as well. Very well done colors and good light management.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your Easter!
