Auvers-sur-Oise

The town where Vincent van Gogh painted for several weeks before he died is one of my most favorite places to visit in France. I was recently there in warm, sunny weather, making it more difficult to photograph, but I could have spent the whole day there trying to capture the beautiful fields of wheat and poppies on top of the hill behind the church.

My friend and I arrived by train and walked first to the church which had been covered with scaffolding when I visited a few years ago. The town is small and compact, and while we didn’t see everything, we did manage to see a bit of the local chateau and spend a few idle moments along the banks of the River Oise at the base of the town.
