Sunset in purple

I had already started writing about analog film and how it has much better colour rendition than digital sensors. But then I decided that I really don't care and that you probably don't either. Why? Because photography isn't about colour rendition.
Anyhow, this was taken in the south of France, specifically at the Verdon canyon (like this photo I posted recently). The lake above is artificial and is the result of a dam at the southern edge. The village next to the lake, Les Salles-sur-Verdon, is relatively new - the old village of Sainte-Croix-de-Verdon being completely underwater (isn't knowledge fun?). Anyhow, the best known (and, of course, most invaded by tourists) village in the area is Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, which is quite lovely (if you're in the region and playing tourist, by all means, invade away). The only problem with the tourism is that it drives prices up - everything is expensive (other than the cheap camps). Also, France tends to be filled with the French, who spend most of their time being incredibly french. Trust me, that makes a hell of a lot more sense than it might seem at first glance.
