Rumbles of thunder but little rain – Dordogne pictures

Sun rise across the Dordogne countryside
RUMBLES of thunder, a few drops of rain but the sun still shines across the Dordoge as summer comes to an end and people’s thoughts turn to la rentrée.

Afternoon shadows stretch across the countryside
Late afternoon across the Dordogne countryside as the shadows lengthen.

Irrigation pipes run through the chestnut trees with watering only undertaken outside the warmest times of the day.
