Photographer's Note

Collonges-la-Rouge (Limousin, France)
Collonges-la-Rouge, one of the 'most beautiful villages of France', is 23 kilometres southeast of Brive in the Limousin. Collonges-la-Rouge is a very attractive village, and very popular with visitors to the region - the first thing you will notice is the colour of the place - more or less all the houses have been constructed from the local sandstone, which is very red!
The charm of the bright village of Collonges-la-Rouge is due to the purple sandstone which was used for all the architecture and the Romanesque church. The sandstone deposit is located in the north of the village, on the massif of Habitarelle. For anecdocte, houses are built on a white ground limestone!
