Rainbow over the Valée d'Orb

Rainbow over the Valée d'Orb

Today, Mostyn and I went for our regular Tuesday walk despite poor, showery weather. We walked above the villages of Dio and Valquières. Despite the drizzle, the sun did occasionally break through and we were treated to several good views of rainbows. The town on the left of the photo is Le Bousquet d'Orb. The plateau here has been the home of seven wind turbines for a couple of years. They are quite impressive close up, standing 93 meters tall plus the length of the blade, about another 60 meters. As part of the development a shelter for walkers has been built which was welcome for us to take a snack out of the strong wind and showers!
