Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth


Sitting behind my hubby in the microlight I look straight down at the village of Rocamadour. The buildings rise in stages up the side of a cliff on the right bank of the Alzou river which runs between rock walls 120metres in height. Flights of steps ascend from the lower town to the churches, a group of massive buildings half way up the cliff.

    • It was a fun trip. We flew there especially to take photos, and it’s such a fantastically different perspective to being in the village and looking up.

    • The main part of the buildings are usually inside the cliff, kind of started by cave dwellers originally. They’re a fascinating site when you stand and look up at them. Rocamadour was quite hard to photograph because we had to get there with the light in the right place, and we couldn’t fly up through the gorge because it’s narrow and could be dodgy with winds. Great fun though!

I'd love your thoughts ...
