Travel Theme: Horizons

This week’s Travel theme as set by Ailsa at her blog ‘Where’s my Backpack?’ is Horizons. I’ve had a quick trawl through the archives, and selected three images from my travels, all with a watery theme. I’ve gone for these three as they demonstrate different horizon positions in the frame:

Next, a more recent image of the landscape south of Collioure, France:

And finally, another image from a slide taken around the Somme bay, Picardy, France:

  1. Beautiful shots. Beautiful blues! Thanks for sharing pics of France — places I may never get to see but enjoyed through you.

  2. I look at photos of France and wonder why I live here…

  3. Isn’t that drive along the coast around Collioure beautiful?

    • Certainly is… And there’s so much history inland, it’s a fantastic region of France. Castles, cathedrals, Roman ruins…”

      • Yes, we spent two weeks based in a converted winery in St. Andre just south of Perpignan and didn’t have enough time to take it all in. Beyond the castles and walled cities, just driving the back roads of the countryside discovering its hidden gems makes for an enjoyable vacation.

      • Sounds great! Oh, and I’ve just remembered the Circulades…those fortified circular villages/towns, is that what you were referring to?

      • No, just to the wonderful ambiance that is discovered in a quiet village square when stumbled upon just in time for a late lunch. 😉

      • Couldn’t agree more!

  4. Absolutely beautiful Sue! I love those blue waters!!

  5. I always get itchy feet looking at other bloggers travel photos. These got my gypsy soul yearning Sue.

  6. Lovely to see your pics of France Sue, these are gorgeous. I’m missing being there already…

  7. I love that first one, Sue. It’s almost like a negative. No, I don’t mean that- like when you hold a slide up to the light- do you know what I mean?

  8. Echoing Jude’s sentiments….sigh!! 🙂 They are all beautiful Sue.

  9. Water is a constant draw for me. I love the light on water and its changing colours. My favourite from this selection is the first, with those wonderful blues. A delight.
