Photo Friday – September in the South

30 Sep

September in the South

September in the South of France is temperamental: it changes its mood from one day to the next and we can never predict what it will bring us tomorrow. Even the morning is not a clear indicator of the day to come: a thick fog may hide everything from view during breakfast, while at lunch I would have to close all the shutters to keep out the heat.

This week, temperatures have been between 26 and 32 degrees Celsius. I would worry about getting sunburnt after ten minutes out on the balcony watering the plants. Friends are racing to the beach to catch the last rays of summer sun and sun cream is still a member of my handbag clan.

Last week, however, when taking photos in the evening, I had to walk on the spot to keep warm. My jumper and jacket weren’t enough to stop the cold seeping through to my skin, and my fingers lost their colour from holding the camera in a fixed position. I would have willingly accepted some gloves and a hat. I thought autumn had come for good and so I wanted to capture its arrival.

    A beauteous bunch of photos. My favorite is the second-to-last; the sunlight coming in the top right corner is the perfect touch. What type of flowers are they, by the way?

      Thank you. I love that photo, too. Although I am very disappointed to say that I do not know the name of the flowers either 😦 I’ll try and find out from a local and will let you know!

    Beautiful! My fave photo must be that gigantic mushroom!

      That mushroom makes me laugh; it reminds me of an old man perched on a wood stump!
