Great area and view and has gorgeous food!!!

Mont St. Victoire was a favourite subject of the artist Paul Cezanne. He painted the mountain from several viewpoints and at different times of the day and seasons of the year. But this photo, with its whispy clouds, the contorted folds and colours of the rock strata and the olive trees agitated by the evening breeze, reminds me most of van Goch's portrayal of Provencal landscapes.

very nice shot mer John Goodall

Cnicht, the pyramidical mountain on the left, is known as the "Welsh Matterhorn".

Here you see the couple of wires 600VDC used for trolley of filobus (bus with tires and two wires). In Modena the tramways (one wire and iron rail) was out of service in the late '40. In Bologna we are waiting for new electric bus without trolley in the next two years. CIAO

Oh, that's ok. Was the same for me when I was in London. In the hotel (previously paid!) they wanted a lot of £ in hostage to avoid damage by me! And there was not any written notice. Paese che vai, usanza che trovi (Each Country has proper law). No trouble: we will survive. CIAO

I rarely write "look at my photo" comments, but here's one time I will, in response to your atmosphere-filled churchyard photo. Guelph, Ontario, where we live, has a particular connection with the memorial poppy, explained in the photo with the plaque. Marilyn
