I am not in any way want to offend you, my friend, but at the sight of this picture (very high quality picture!) for some reason I immediately thought of "branchy cranberry" ...
Branchy cranberry (or "under the branchy cranberry", "spreading cranberry", sometimes "cranberry") - Russian idiomatic expression that means fabrications, false stereotypes, misconceptions, absurd and ridiculous nonsense. The expression is usually used in an ironic sense, most of the speculation spread by foreigners, mostly from the West about Russia and Russian: about life, culture, history, language and idiom, etc. contains an oxymoron, which lies in the fact that the diminutive (2-3 cm), prostrate on the ground bush cranberry can never be branchy.
I will not hide - I am a writer, I understand the humor and jokes, so to fantastic images of imaginary "Russians", I'm with humor.
However, I still do not have to create characters "fantastic French" (not a character that the plot was of French origin), but I believe I could have.
