Well, as long as it is such a beautiful landscape, it doesn't make much of a difference whether it is Corsica or not, Loïc ;-) A well presented view with the bushes in the foreground, the diagonal array of white houses in the village, the curving road at the left, and the hill ranges behind. Good contrast and colors, well done.

Default To nwoehnl: Corsica or not...

Hi Norbert, and thanks a lot for your kind comment.
I chose the tilte of my last contribution ("it s not Corsica") due to the fact that this part of the Cevennes area looks very close to some Corsica parts (in particular the Northern Alpine Corsica). These similarities between the two regions are due to the presence of a very similar vegetation (Chestnut trees and mediterranean oaks) that are growing on similar rocks (metamorphic shales). The big differences are that the substatum rocks are Alpine for Northern Corsica and Hercynian (very older) in the case of the Cevennes area, and that sea is very nearer when you are in corsica than when you are in Cevennes...
Thank you again.
