The Joys of Rural France
As much as I love the UK there is no doubt that rural France is my favourite photographic stomping ground. There is seemingly an endless supply of ancient villages to explore with photographic opportunities around every corner.
It is not as if one needs to travel far from the channel ports. The above image was taken not 10 km from the coast and I could quite easily have filled a memory card within the hour.
That being said, Burgundy is definitely my favourite destination where every town and village seems to be a winner and with magical names to boot; Semur en Auxois, Flavigny-sur-Ozerain, Couche, Buxy … et all.
So if you need some inspiration bag a day return on Eurotunnel and explore the Pas de Calais. You won’t be disappointed.
