Canal du Midi, between Ventenac and Paraza in 1999

A winter walk along the Canal du Midi between Ventenac and Paraza

The Canal du Midi has a magic that can be relished by walking along its banks. The sunlight sparkling on the trees, reflected in the golden browns of leaves of vineyards in the process of pruning. The smell of wood or leaves burning. The white blankets of small flowers smattered between the rows of vines. The air fresh. Light both clear and hazy against the distant hills and snowcapped Pyrenees
