That flamingo is beautiful! I remember those flamingoes in that part of France. I love Carcassone, what a great place to explore and get transported into a different time. And Perpignan is wonderful as well.

Reader Wil said...

Beautiful photos! The third one is a masterpiece, something I long to take once : a bird in flight over water!
Thanks for your visit. I was also thinking of Jane Austen when we were in Bath.

I didn't know that flamingos could be seen in France! All beautiful shots, but the flamingo is best, I think.

Carcassonne has been on my "must visit" list since the 70's. For some reason I never went there, yet :-) Great photos, and I really love the flamingo shot!

Each of the pictures is special. My favorite is the first. You captured the scene is such a way as to give a sense of depth on various levels, progressing on toward the horizon. Thank you, for sharing!

Lew said...

Great reflections, especially the flamingo!

These photos are an inspiration, both to travel more and to take more pictures! Lovely.

Kay you've captured the joy that is train travel. I love the passing scenes and the way you catch a fleeting glimpse, a little snapshots of life. And what a variety one sees from a train window. I love the first photo - there is always something enchanting about streams - the gentle foilage wafting like a secret garden, the power of the stream and the glitter on sun on the water. And then in an instant it's gone again.

That flamingo is fabulous as well. I thought it was a crane until I read the caption. How exciting - with the reflection, you got two birds for the price of one.

I'm so glad I have a bit of time before I conk out in a few minutes to see what you're up to. It's been an exhausting few days trying to work on Art's family history. I'm seeing that light at the end of the tunnel though.
