Lac du Der - part 1 - photo exhibit

This week's excursion took us about 200 kms east of Paris to the Lac du Der in the Champagne region of France. No, we weren't shopping for or drinking champagne; we went on the advice of my friend Marcel who recommended the area for three reasons: 1. the cranes, 2. a nature photography festival, and 3. the churches.

We arrived on Thursday afternoon and visited the photography exhibit first. This is the cover photo for the exposition.

Patrice and I were awed by the expo. I don't think we'll ever have the time or the patience or the equipment to capture the kind of photos we saw in the exhibit. . . The photos were breathtaking and reminded me what you can do with a "real" camera and special lenses rather than a pocket sized point-and-shoot. . .
