Ripe Sweet Chestnuts
Ripe Sweet Chesnuts
This part of Southern France has many Chestnut plantations. Indeed, in the past chestnuts were the staple food providing flour to make bread after drying in specially built "Sécadous" or drying houses. This photo was taken near to the village of Villecelle. (Panasonic Lumix TZ10)
