This is the Pigeoneer at Les Gites du Pech, the B&B where our group stayed. Nancy and I stayed here, in the Pigeoneer! Out our window we could see sheep grazing, fog rising from the Lot River, and the Chateau de Cenevieres high on the cliffs about 2 miles away.

Sheep in the Fog at Sunrise. This was shot just down the lane, essentially in the "back yard," of the farm we stayed at in Larnagol. We had a few wonderful foggy mornings during our stay.

The Village of Larnagol in the Lot Region of SW France. This image was shot with the iPhone 6+ and processed to make it appear like it was taken many years ago. In fact, the village as changed little in the past 300 years or more.

We were given a private tour of Chateau de Ceneviers by the owner, Monsieur Patrick. As a special treat, he took our group up to the attic! We were all surprised to learn castles have attics too!

The French countryside is dotted with many stone structures created by shepherds and farmers through the ages. The circular building, often referred to as a shepherd's hut, often stands alone in a field, there to provide shelter for the shepherd and his sheep.

Another image taken just out the back door of Les Gites du Pesh where we stayed. I think we could have spend the entire 10 days on the farm and we'd have been very happy with our images!

We came upon this abandoned church at a crossroads in a rural area near Larnagol. Churches are usually the central architectural feature in villages, towns and cities thoughout SW France. We encountered a great deal of Catholic iconography throughout the Lot Region.
