Roquebrun, Tarn, France

I was lucky to pay a fleeting visit to this green and rocky place last week, the weather was surprisingly warm, perhaps too hot for a 3 hour trek up the Gorge D’Heric but the scenery was certainly photogenic.

Bridge over the Orb
Sunday swimming in the Orb, below the bridge in Roquebrun. I think maybe something was being cooked up on a barbecue too.
Roquebrun
The little hill town of Roquebrun with its protecting castle which has views both up and down the river Orb
Pinks
The fertile flat land that floods in winter is well used and tended, growing everything from cabbages to mulberry trees, pinks to leeks
Portager
The river Orb flows between the rows of trees in the distance.

Messing about in the river
Gorge d"Heric
Gorges d’Heric. – I just happened to be passing when this guy was trying to impress his girlfriend by throwing a big boulder into the river. She honestly couldn’t have cared less!
Gorges
Afternoon sunlight just hitting the edges of the trees on our way down from the top.
splash
Trying to catch the splash as my friend throws stones into the pool.
Grey rock
most of the fallen rocks were yellow brown but this enormous one was blue grey, been there a long time judging by the smoothed contours.
River Orb
Back down by the river Orb, perfect afternoon sunlight picking up the green of the leaves.
