Photographer's Note

Travelling to France we get sudden surprised by de location of this village in a old crater. We were not only surprised by the location of the village but also by the rest and isolation! We no longer know exact the location and name. Does someone know it?
______________________________

Here some more information about this place that i recive from LACROUX:
This is the "cirque de Navacelles", is not a crater but a canyon.
The "Cirque de Navacelles" is large cirque landform, located towards the southern edge of the Massif Central mountain range in France. It is located near Saint-Maurice-Navacelles, in the H廨ault d廧artement.
After the cirque's formation by glacial erosion (approx. 3 million years ago), a river channel cut through the base of the valley, creating an Oxbow lake within the cirque, a loop in the river that eroded itself through. The lake later dried up, leaving deposits of silt and peat. This created what is the only patch of arable land for many, many miles around.
