[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]

"Organs" are strange rock construction eroded by time and in the form of chimneys. Well before the arrival of man, in the tertiary era, in the uprising of the Pyrenees, the Valley of the Têt collapsed and the River carried materials from the chain of the Pyrenees. Strata accumulated and created a broad plateau, then carved by erosion: thunderstorms, wind, runoff..., men.

The organs of Ille are today such as hoodoos! They are ephemeral and to disappear with time, because they are the result of erosion and human passage.

that spectacular place! a real "sculpture of nature." Picture fascinating bright colors and strong contrasts

wow...thank you for sharing this, it appears redundant i say this; but NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE; "orgues of ille sur tet" organs. Like the shadow effect from the sun here and scattered yellow scrub bushes framing this shot I am so thankful you shared this! you made me smile with "carved by....men!" hehe

Ciao Serge. Amazing colours and playing of light. Good contrast

Hello Serge,
such a magnificent view of this natural land formation. The nature architecture is so pretty. The yellow plants around the place is beautiful too.
Well composed view to give an exciting shot.
Well seen with lovely colours and clarity.


Bonjour Serge,
Remarquable site naturel très bien restitué sous une belle lumière mais qui me semble un peu pencher vers la droite.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Bonjour Serge,

Very unusual these pillar-like rock formations. The natural greens, yellows & sky blue make this geological creation only standout that much more. Very crisp with a fine POV & the time-of-day lighting is choice. Nicely composed indeed!
