I was taking a walk with my family in the forest of Lyons, in Normandy, and we found this abandoned dwelling in a small clearing. It has half-timbered walls whose infill appears to be crumbling; such walls are typical of the Normandy architecture.
This large forest is known for its straight, tall Beech trees. It gave its name to Lyons-la-Forêt, a nearby village, not too far from where I grew up.
Because the forest is so big, it's also very quiet; most man-made sounds are muffled or silenced, leaving only the sounds of birds, trees and small water streams.
