Hi everyone,
I'm just back from a short vacation to the Verdon Gorges in southern France, where I spent a few relaxing days.
I had the chance nonetheless to take a few photographs of this incredibly beautiful region. The canyon of the Verdon river is nothing but a must-visit place for anyone living in EU and for anyone planning to visit France from abroad. It's 60 kms long and 700-800 meters deep, with huge vertical sandstone and limestone walls and fantastic spots at every corner.

I took this picture at dawn a couple of days ago, from atop the highest cliff of the canyon, at about 1300 meters of altitude. This is a stitch of 7 vertical takes, so don't forget to check out the larger size for much better details.
Your c&c are as always highly appreciated, thanks in advance for your time.

Details: Eos 50D, Tokina ATX-Pro 12-24 f4, GND 8x + GND 4x, tripod.

Camera:Canon EOS 50D
Lens:Tokina ATX-Pro 12-24 f4
Recording media:RAW (digital)

Excellent image of an incredible place. I climbed in the gorge around 1978 - scary place at times!

Thanks for commenting.
Yes, there were many climbers as well last week. those huge vertical walls are scary indeed, though those climbers were looking like they had some great fun. Either crazy or very experienced people, I suppose... Smile
