Image taken in the Bruyant river canyon, located in the French Vercors department. A heavily swollen mountain stream because of the melt, and having its source within the limestone rock at 1100 m (3500 ft) altitude.
A beautiful sunset at the Mediterranean, showing violent waves highlighted by the relaxing sunset light.
Modern day calanques along the Mediterranean Sea are steep-sided valleys that the Holocene (Flandrian) marine transgression partially submerged to form cliff-edged inlets. These valleys were either incised by rivers or created by cave collapse as karstic dry valleys when sea level was lower than present. The Calanque port pin is one of the most beautiful Calanques, as it is lined with pine trees and has a sandy beach.
