Cistercian Abbey

This Abbaye-senanque-gordes founded in 1148 by the Cistercian Monks was so lovely in the early morning light that I feel compelled to also show the color version. The plants in the foreground are lavender!

I'd love to go see it in Provence, especially with the lavender out on bloom.

Both of these photos are gorgeous. What a fabulous old place! I love the fluffy clouds, mounds of them, mounds of trees, mounds of lavender and the round windows have a theme that makes this composition great! V
