French Canyon by FlorentCourty French Canyon by FlorentCourty
Truly an incredible place, we had 40°C during the day but it was worth it!
There was a strange haze in the air and a high contrast around the sun that obliged me to make a blending from 5 different exposures.

Les Gorges de la Jonte, France.

Ah oui, ça vaut le détour, c'est vraiment un canyon l'affaire. Il faut faire gaffe par contre quand on se retrouve proche du bord, il y a parfois de sacrés vides.

Yes, I spent 5 hours on photoshop to have this picture! Probably one of the most difficult to realize I made, that light was too hard to control.

Thanks! :)

I like the red on the rocks to the left, that really adds something ti the picture.

I had no idea it could get so hot in France!

Thank you! ;)

In the south west part of France, temperatures can go up to 40°C many times per year during summer ^^ this country can have many type of weather and there is great differences following the part of France where you are. I live in central France in middle moutain, we can have 35° in summer, less than -20°C in winter, 1m of snow.

Great shot - I was in the Tarn Gorges area a few weeks ago, didn't have weather as good as this though...

Hum, that's not a good weather to me :p far too hot!
Cloudless sky isn't good for pictures usually too... but in that case, this place is so awesome that it made something, it created an atmosphere that fits well with this arid canyon with huge cliffs ^^
