Les Rochers, Pont Romain, St. Léger-du-Ventoux

That enormous converted farmhouse seen under the Roman bridge over the river Toulourenc, had 12 bedrooms. It was the summer retreat of the family of my school French-exchange partner. I came here most summers from the age of 14 until my early twenties. How lucky was I??!!! It was a very formative experience! I'm still in contact with him by the way, so that's 51 years and my first visit there seems like yesterday! I did use black and white for my first holiday there so this must have been taken in 1972.
A bit of Led Zep and why not? Sight and Sound www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaVFvWk3VZE

Thank you, William. Yes I did tweak it a bit on the sepia front. It needed a bit of something before posting!
