La Buissière, France

The narrow road winding between farmhouses with rugged stone walls hasn’t seen a traveller for hours. The farmhouses are small fortresses, protecting families from the cold. Wispy clouds hang low over their rooftops. The crisp air smells of sweet smoke from wood fires. Everything is still and quiet.

A mountain range lies behind the town like a dozing giant. The snow reflecting the bright sun is like patches of white in his long beard.
