100. Is this where redheads come from?


Situated in the Luberon, at the foot of the Monts de Vaucluse, Roussillon is a picture perfect village snuggled in the heart of one of the biggest ochre deposits in the world.

Who knew you could mine colour? Okay well probably a lot of people other than me.

It was a spectacular place to spend some time. The red, yellow and burnt brown shades of the earth seem to rise up into the buildings that sit upon it and, at this time of the year, even into the leaves on the trees. I was almost camouflaged by the place.
