Château de Chenonceau, France – Forgotten Postcard

The Château de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley of France is a popular travel destination. This iconic castle sits partly over the Cher River.

Mont Saint Michel, France – Forgotten Postcard

If you’ve ever visited Mont Saint Michel, you know the view of this imposing island fortress on a misty morning is unlike any other.

Sacré-Cœur, Paris – Forgotten Postcard

My husband and I took the Petit train d’Artouste, a narrow gage tourist railway that leaves from the Artouste-Fabrèges ski area. The train travels 10 km along the mountains high above the valley … more

Making Jurancon Wine

Since I moved to Europe, I’ve become fascinated with the wine-making process. I was fortunate enough to be able to frequently visit the region of south west France where Jurançon wine is made. I photographed this process over a period of several seasons. The vast majority of these images are from Domaine Nigri, located outside the village … more
