Roussillon, the village made of ochreRoussillon was the most amazing experiences during our trip in Provence. This village was an important place for mining of ochre, which is a yellow, red, brown and sometimes purple colored natural earth pigment. There is the famous ochre path, where you can see all of this colors.
The village on the hill is really picturesque and inspiring, and the were a lot of Japaneses and French artists, who painted the view and the rich colors of ochre. I loved the tones, the pastels and the whole atmosphere, I hope you enjoy the photos too.
