A solitary walk in Roussillon, France
City scene on a rainy day in Roussillon, France. The buildings there are constructed from the local clay, which contains iron ochre pigment and produces a unique pastel color of the architecture. The cliffs near Roussillon are a major source of ochre pigment used for artists' paints.
