Colmar: immensely beautiful

Colmar is indeed a beautiful place. I had the pleasure of visiting Colmar in August 2013 – In addition to the Pinot Gris and Muscat, Alsace is famous for the Gewurztraminer wines which are a must try wines.

Very often, when you are looking through the photos of a place you want to visit, they appear a bit brighter than the place itself when you finally there. Photographers use filters and sophisticated means to make their works if not a piece of art but at least simply look better. I cannot argue, their works are catchy, but sometimes too far away from reality. In that sense, Colmar is exactly the same as when you see it on all the artistic pictures. It is bright and beautiful without any filters and colors’ amplification. Blossoming flowers, sweet gingerbread houses and lively channels… Total awesomeness!

Sticking with the French theme. This photograph was made in Eymet; a village near Bergerac in the South-West of France. Eymet is a wonderful place and the market regularly features. Eymet is a mecca for ex-patriot Britains who flock to the south-west of France to retire or to start a second career. If you are ever in the area, check out the markets in Eymet for lots of colour and local atmosphere – as well as a bargain.
