 I've been trying out my new camera this week in lots of lovely locations in the Ariege.  The crisp shadow of this pretty crocus would make an ideal stencil for a quilt design, wouldn't it!  The photo was taken going along in the car, up a steep and bumpy mountain road towards Roquefixade.
Below - from Roquefixade looking across the valley towards Les Monts d'Olmes.  

Above - the gorgeous view from Le Col de Port looking south towards Tarascon sur Ariege.

 The pretty church in the main square at Massat has some stunning stained glass windows.

There's a sprinkling of snow on the peaks beyond Plateau de Beille but not on the plateau itself yet so cross-country skiers will have to wait a while longer!

 Below - looking down into the River Ariege from le Pont du Diable, between Tarascon and the turning for St. Paul de Jarrat.

Another lovely door!

On the rock in the middle of this lake at the Port de Lers is a cormorant waiting to dive for his dinner.
