Photographer's Note

The Calanques are inlets of the sea just west of Cassis, on the Mediterranean coast. The word translates as creeks, but they are steep-sided limestone gorges flooded by the sea at the end of the Ice Age. This view is of Port au Pins, the longest calanque. In the background on the right are the red cliffs of Cap Canaille, and in the background on the left is the town of Cassis. The area is very colourful, especially on a sunny day. This is a stitch of two photos. The red canoe in the foreground appears twice in the photo because it moved between shots, but that's OK because it adds some contrasting colour to the blue water.
