CADOLE CHAPELLE
We call "cadole" a very small construction made of "dry stone". Erected in the vineyards, a cadole is only a tiny, very rustic shelter still located on the edge of the plot. Between Hauteville and Savigny lès Beaune, the tradition of building cadoles dates back to the 18th century and ended in 1914.
Recently, I was walking in the vineyards near Echevronne. At sunset, I discovered a small adorable construction that I would call "chapdole"...a kind of mix of chapel and cadole!
This shelter is quite unique.
It was erected in 2016, just on the Grande Randonnée trail (G.R.65) that leads to Puy en Vézelay, thus on the way to Santiago de Compostela...therefore the idea to shape it like a chapel !

I admire and respect all these enthusiasts who use their talent, time and money for the benefit of tradition and collective heritage.

As I had neither tripod nor speedlight with me. i decided to take only 1 photo hand held and then to cheat while post treating it in order to render the final picture more pleasant (all the foreground and « chapdol » shown no detail...it was quite black)

Location  « Chapdole »: 47° 6'37.11"N 4°50'3.97"E

History lesson, location, and and details of how you did post to create this quietly striking photo. Photo construction is great... impacted by heavy negative foreground and structure at 1/3 1/3 and then drift off into the quiet of positive bright space sky. Skillfully done Dan.

What a wonderful photo!

Certainly you were able to see the detail in the cajole when you were there - your pupils would have dilated selectively when you looked at the structure, and then constricted when you looked at the sky. Something no camera can do.

So you were not "cheating" when you processed the image - you creatively "fixed" the photo so we could see what you saw when you were there.

Well done!
