Everybody who's been there knows that when you walk up from the parking lot, over the rise, and see the town for the first time, it just takes your breath away. So, you stop, say "Oh, my God, this is the cutest town I've ever seen", and you take a photo!
This is why I don't bother bring a camera with me anymore! Others have taken the same photo & done it better than I could.

My OH takes excellent photos with his camera- I take mine with my heart and soul. Each to their own.

Re: Does anyone know where these photos were taken?

LOL - honest - if I had to concentrate on the right lens, right angle, right light, miss the tourists- etc - I'd just wouldn't be able to truly enjoy the whole, the atmosphere, the people. But for OH it all the above enhance rather than take away. Great, as this way I can drag him around botanical gardens, castles, etc, which he would find dead boring otherwise - so both happy. Hurray.

The third photo is in Le Pont in the Vallee de Joux.
Must have been a very dry summer:

Great pictures - I just love 'my' Jura. Do you live in the area too?

Perhaps Martin is away - but it is disappointing somehow when somebody asks a question, many take the trouble to answer, and then .... zilch return.

less than 5 days ago. not everyone is an EF addict. the guy might actually have a life so, why not give him a break!

plus everything is answered, no more info is required from the OP. nice little photo hunt for all to enjoy.

Re: Does anyone know where these photos were taken?

Thank you all so much for your inputs, it's been really fun reading your suggestions and then Googling them!

So I've learnt where some of the pictures are from all those years ago.

I would like to return one day, as my short stay left me with a everlasting impression of beauty, cleanliness and lovely people.

Thank you

Martin


ps. Since my accident I don't have a 9-5 life, so sometimes I can read and run out of time to reply! :)

Re: Does anyone know where these photos were taken?

Martin, nice to hear from you again. So sorry to hear you've had an accident - of course we had no idea about that. Hope you are truly on the mend and that you will come back one day. I live (and was born) quite near to the Vallée de Joux, so if I can ever be of assistance I'd be glad to help.
