Pic(k) of the week 44: Back in time, Cordes-sur-Ciel
Last month I managed to visit the medieval village of Cordes-sur-Ciel near Toulouse, France. This fortified town on top of a small hill was built in 1222 by Raimon VII, the count of Toulouse.
A steep hike rewards one with great views on the surrounding vineyards. Even though it can be quite touristy at times, there are plenty of photo opportunities for the travel photographer.
The image above of two very old doors, takes one back in time and gives a good impression of what the village looks like!
To me this is an image screaming to be converted to Black and White...

More of images of the region can be found in my new "Toulouse" gallery.
