Lake of Sainte Croix

When we organized our little Lomo-meeting with golfpunkgirl and stoonja, we met at the lake of Sainte Croix, one of the favorite spots of stoonja. We took the A8 highway from Nice, and came out at the exit "Brignoles", then, about 50 km through little country roads up in the mountains, we suddenly we discovered the place: a beautiful blue lake in an amazing landscape full of very different colors.

It was marvelous! And near the lake we spent a great afternoon, taking good time in the sun and bathing in the lake. This lake is an artificial one and the hydro-electrical dam was built 1973. But in the space planned for the lake was an old village, called Sainte Croix (Holy Cross). The place was condemned to be underwater and a new village of Sainte Croix was constructed near the lake. If you’re in this area, take your time to visit this place, it is beautiful!
