France : a Provence white like snow


It took few years to Hemis photographers and a lot of stubbornness to collect these amazing pictures. Because, in Provence, snow is so unexpected and unusual. Rarely, this country of heat, colors and scents clothes in white. One may then discover frozen landscapes, white olive threes, waves of white foam from frozen lavenders. One may be filled with wonder by the beauty of the Palais des Papes whitened by flakes, the Ochres of Roussillon in white coat or the frozen Baux de Provence looking like landscape from the Great North. Put your boots on and follow our photographers trail‌
