Tarascon, sometimes referred to as Tarascon-sur-Rhône, is a commune in the Bouches-du-Rhône department in southern France. It is located 23 kilometres (14 miles) south of Avignon and 20 kilometres (12 miles) north of Arles, on the left (east) bank of the Rhône River.
On the other side of the Rhône is the similarly sized town of Beaucaire in the département of Gard, région of Languedoc-Roussillon. Directly opposite each other and connected by several bridges, Beaucaire and Tarascon effectively constitute one town.

Elles ont du caractère ces vieilles maisons colorées qui bordent une ruelle tranquille. Un bon jeu d'ombres et de lumières.

Bonne journée mon voisin :)

Hi Stephen. The houses have a lot of character and lovely colours. The light is doing its magic here, accentuating texture and form.The closed shutters and closed doors make me wonder if this is a town of old folk who spend most of their summer inside and a place where the young have left for bigger places.If it's not siesta time, then it's like a ghost town. Regards. Klaudio.

a beautiful laneway with some lovely old buildings. I like the colours too and the cobble path is beautiful.

Interesting architectural details shown, captured with very good light, which gives a very nice texture to the walls! The shadows give a beautiful contrast to the image! Wonderful job!

Love this point of view, the light is falling perfectly on this deserted street to illuminate those buildings and bring their color out really nicely. There is an excellent sensation of the height of the buildings, and bravo for capturing this scene with no people at all.
All the best

love this! So much to look at and all captured so perfectly. I love the tones and textures here but it is the light, shadows and colours that make it so special. Beautifully accomplished shot. Well done.
Have a good week - Brian.

Hello Stephen - This is an excellent shot. The tight, vertical composition conveys the atmosphere of the narrow lane exceptionally well and the colours are superb. I love the beautiful pastel washes on the buildings; so full of texture and detail. Top class shot here and to my mind one of your finest recent uploads. Warm regards Rosemary

molto belle queste facciate, hanno dei colori pastello molto delicati e piacevoli.
Eccellente scatto, mi piace il taglio che hai scelto.

Bravo et amitié

l'uso del tele è stato indovinato in questa foto perchè schiacciando i piani ti ha permesso di far risaltare la facciata della casa inserendola nell'ambiente urbano e bnello stesso tempo dando ad essa il giusto risalto siprattutto per le sue particolari colorazioni che rappresentano essenzialmente la bellezza della foto.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

A fantastic collage of complimentary colors on the facades of these colourful provincial French buildings. Effective tight framing with good sharpness and fg shadow detail in the darkened alley. The blue door bottom tight adds the necessary warm cold color contrast against the yellow orange and hot pink. Tfs!
jemaflor (74108) 2013-09-23 9:16
Well presented, nice colors for thesehouses, original and well captured on this sunny day, tfs.

Ciao Stephen, great view of lovely facades with beautiful architecture, splendid light, excellent clarity, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
macjake (45588) 2013-09-23 12:46
too bad about the harsh lighting near the top of the frame, its a bit white looking, but then again its just that time of day...not much you could do really.
but i have to say that the architecture is wonderful to look at and to photograph. and again, i can't help but wonder what is behind those walls! are they still in use? or are they abandoned? do you know?

amazing colorful facades. Interesting place, well presentation. Good composition. Photo I like a lot.
Have a nice day.
ikeharel (44081) 2013-09-24 3:02
Beautiful taken the photo down the small street, adorned with colorful facades, very diff. in style from those in Italia.
The pastel tones of pink and orange with the olive-green wooden door, and other green tones onf the shutters, is a very pleasent factor on this image.
Well done with the variable light and shaded parts.
dkmurphys (42567) 2013-09-24 7:23
Charming street, the colors of the old houses are amazing. Well taken.
ourania (18704) 2013-10-01 12:49
a well considered composition that has balanced superbly the many architectural patterns, the unusual colours and the playful, contrasting lighting. You are presenting this colourful corner of the old town in a very effective way, through inviting perspectives, superb clarity and a layout that has bestowed with interest the whole of the frame. I love the light and colours on the facades. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
Didi (51327) 2013-10-08 11:38
