The Barefoot Blogger’s mid-week drive from Uzès to experience Fall in Provence inspired some stunning photos to share. This time of year brings out my favorite colors in the crayon box.
Fall in Provence
Provence experiences a subtle transformation in the Autumn. As summer’s heat fades, the picturesque landscape takes on muted hues. The vibrant green vineyards and lavender fields give way to earthy amber, red, and gold tones.
Perhaps the plane trees along the roads in Provence show the most dramatic change. As green foliage is gradually replaced with tones of copper, the branches seem to rise skyward. It is as if these “arms” of the plane trees are reaching in desperation to catch the last hint of summer’s warm breezes and sun.

Fall in Roussillion
Tourists may not know, but Fall is the best time of the year to visit Roussillon. The ochre hills create a backdrop for the village’s palette of fall color on every street corner.
Thanks to the friends who help color my world.
