Meux is a small village in Charente-Maritime not far from where I live.
It has under 300 inhabitants and, yet, boasts a 12th century Romansque church and a Chateau dating from the second half of the 15th century. In adition, there is nearby a small zoo or animal park and a picturesque restored windmill.
This picture taken during the recent fine autumn weather shows the church and the chateau across the open fields that surround the village.

Pictures of small villages often catch my attention bevasue of the picturesque settings. I like the perspective here because it shows an empty field leading to the buildings. I see a little trail on the left which is probably used by the farmers in this place. Good use of light and nice colors Stephen.

Hello Stephen. The photo shows the edge of a village and the church and the Chateau as cultural objects of interest. Everything works something reserved. One sees also that it became autumn. The fields are harvested and everything look somewhat empty. The winter announces itself. Perhaps one would have go somewhat more near to the actual motive (church and Chateau). Altogether the camera was used here like the note book of an attentive observer. Very beautifully. Many greetings, Wolfgang.

A castle and a church together,it's original!
Nice colors,it's seem there is a little oversharpened.
