In Normandie on the way to Champagne

by Jay September. 24, 2011 3378 views

Here are some more shots of my drive through Normandie and the Champagne region of France. It's what I get for not sticking to the main roads.

Although these tend to look very nice either in B&W or sepia, I decided to leave them in their originals due to the marvelous blue sky.

(I have to correct this post as I found a note in my files stating that this château is actually in Normandie just before entering Champagne-Ardennes)

Gotta love that blue cart. There was such a collection of carts, coaches, wagons, etc., under that thatched roof, many with so much dust. I wanted all of them.

You are a hell of a globetrotter and one with a good eye for smashing shots.

FASCINATING architecture! This must have been a wonderful drive... coming unexpectedly across such places! That church yard alone would have been enough to keep me busy for hours!
