There is quite a lot of subterranean water in this part of France, and at this location , off to the left a bit, a small river bubbles out of the ground and commences it’s journey towards the sea about a hundred or so kilometres away. This little hamlet is called Sompt, hence the name of the river.
Done entirely on site and plain air, the weather was overcast and misty, with the winter sun trying to peep through every now and then. Hence the subdued but rosy harmony.
