Photographer's Note

The Dentelles de Montmirail are short, steep mountains with a distinctive rocky ridge, extending west geologically from the Mont Ventoux . The jagged, rocky top is named after the lace (dentelle) it's thought to resemble.

The Dentelles are mainly forested at the northern end, with pine and oak woods on many of the lower slopes. Except for the bare rocky ridge, eroded by the fierce Mistral winds, the mountains are covered in broom, which blooms into bright yellow from April to June. In October though, we were enchanted by the Gold & Brass colours of the vineyards...
