My village seen through other -- known -- eyes

Not many bloggers write about Aveyron, and certainly few, if any, have ever posted about my very own village of residence, Gages.

Personally, I avoid communicating about my home town, preferring to focus on Rodez, where I work, or other parts of the local countryside into which my husband forays for his job.

And, increasingly, I find myself wanting to share places beyond...

So imagine my surprise when a Google alert came along for a lovely post about Gages. And imagine my further surprise when I discovered, after a little digging around, that it was created by a colleague of mine!

Here's to you, Rares. I think you have a great eye and I loved the way you captured familiar views of my village. I hope you expand your blogging activity.

It really looks so beautiful there! As a Norwegian, I love nature and rural surroundings and this peaceful landscape is breath taking - thanks for sharing!

What a gorgeous picture. So serene.

It looks very pastoral and quiet. I don't know that I've visited that part of France, although I did go to school in Nice for a summer.

c'est exactement ce genre de paysages somptueux, naturels et préservés qui nous a donné envie à mon amie et moi d'ouvrir 1 gîte dans ce départment magnifique qu'est l'Aveyron!
Ce qui n'est qu'un projet pour l'instant prendra forme, je l'espère, dans moins de 2 ans.
Merci encore pour ce blog plein de jolies photos.
