This is the last Snapshot Saturday. WordPress has decided to discontinue its weekly photographic challenges. I’m a bit sad about this. It’s been fun tussling with choosing images for each week’s idea, and through it, I’ve ‘met’ fellow-bloggers and made virtual visits to all parts of the globe.
This week, we’ve been invited to bow out by posting our all-time favourite shots. That’s far too difficult. Instead, I’m taking you to the Ariège in France, where my blogging journey began when we lived there for some years, and offering you some favourite shots from there.
Tabariane, near Mirepoix.
Snowy days near Montferrier.
The Pyrenees viewed from Saint Julien de Gras-Capou.
Another much missed treat. Shared meals in the sunshine, with old friends and new. This is in Mirepoix.
Springtime in the Dolomies, near Foix.
Just outside Laroque d’Olmes, our home town.
The best of times. Picnicking at lunchtime on our regular Sunday walks. Shared food, shared wine, shared landscapes.
One super-dramatic sunset at Laroque d’Olmes.
Montségur, our nearby landmark and Cathar stronghold, one misty morning in July.
Walking in the Aude, there were vineyards, always vineyards.
A less snowy day near Foix.
Views from le Cap du Carmil in June. Still snowy on the peaks.
Another view from le Cap du Carmil.
The summer solstice at Montségur.
Le lac de Montbel, our nearby water playground.
Montségur one snowy March day.
