Perspective (22) – Through the Pines, to the Castle

Ten years ago when we visited the Cathar castles I used all the strength I had to drag myself up to one of the castles (Quertinheux)   at Lastours because I wanted to see the views from across there to two of the other castles (Tour Régine and Cabaret)….it was well worth the effort, but I was sad that I couldn’t manage more….and that it was such a dull day.

View out from the Quertinheux ramparts (to Tour Régine, and furthest away, Cabaret

Linked to July Squares at Becky’s here


  1. Such great memories of Cathar country. Thanks so much.

  2. But what a beautiful photograph! I bet you took a few that day 🙂 🙂

  3. Amy

    That is such a beautiful image, Sue!

  4. Love looking through old stone structures to the view

  5. I do like that region, but the castles are indeed situated very high up. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Don’t fret about it being such a dull photograph, Sue. It looks absolutely lovely and the lack of sunshine makes it more romantic I think. You did well to brave those steps up to the castle. I can’t do it any more but I managed some years ago but I dropped my camera on the trip so got not pix. Yours are a lovely reminder of an area I’m very fond of.

  7. thank you so much for getting yourself up to this point, what a fabulous perspective

  8. That must have been quite a climb, Sue. Well worth it though. Beautiful photo. 😍

  9. Wow! To the click and the climb Sue. Thanks for the share .
