The is the village of Rousillon as seen from the south, near the entrance to the ochre mineworkings.

I shot this picture shortly after dawn while the sunlight was diffused by a thin sheet of cloud. I rather liked the way the soft light brought out the colours of the houses. After waiting for the sun to emerge I realised I'd already caught the best light and wandered off to explore the town...

Working with a large-format camera allowed me to use front fall to pull in the foreground without the risk of converging verticals. I added a small amount of front tilt just to keep everything in focus.

Camera:Ebony 4x5
Lens:90mm + 0.6 ND grad (soft)
Recording media:Velvia 100

Beautiful colours and excellent composition. And happy memories for me. Glad you're taking advantage of all the movements that proper cameras are capable of.

Thanks Chris! I'm really enjoying getting back to basics with large format - it really does give you a different approach to composition.
