Got down to South West France last week and had a tour on the growing, drying and production of the famous piement d'Espelette. The opportunity was too good to pass up for a few close up shots. Not easy trying to do fresh produce close-ups outdoors, so all comments and tips welcome.

Really nice series, Diane! I like the first shot, with a glimpse of the town in the background which looks very quaint. The last one is just beautiful and artistic!

Don't let George sniff those!!

The first one is awesome with the background but the others are all great.

G'day Dyane

Agree with ^ ... #1 & #3 tell me a story ... esp #1 as it also give a glimpse of the town & the display / sales method for them
For me in "the great land downunder", sales of these items are in large boxes in the supermarkets - so we don't see them displayed 'au-naturale'

Regards, Phil
