This volcanic plateau, softened by the millennial erosion of the glaciers, offers a relief with undulating curves. To explore Aubrac is to discover a diversity … To observe the clear water which weaves its way between the basaltic rocks, to see the blocks of granite which adorn the fields, to listen and to feel the abundant flora and fauna.
The forests of yesteryear have given way to vast pastures welcoming the beauties with naturally made-up eyes. Pastoral activity has continuously built and maintained the walls, traced the land, designed the drailles … These large spaces are punctuated with burons, these small vernacular architectures are witnesses of the past gradually revitalized. Conducive to emotions, this unique natural landscape has been patiently shaped over the centuries by the hand of man. Conversely, Aubrac shapes the identity of its inhabitants.
An ever-renewed, eternal and sublime spectacle …
Faced with these vast expanses of freedom, each season people enrich their senses. Winter embellished with a white coat does not hide its harshness and isolation. The transhumance interrupts this silence. The meadows are perfumed and nature is effervescent, underground, in the water and in the air. The deep blue of the lakes is captivating. In autumn, light bursts through the clouds and the rays magnify the palette of colors, ocher, brown, copper.
PHOT’Aubrac shows all the diversity of these visions.
