I'll be posting various pictures from the south of France from a trip in December, 2007. I'll begin with a shot of the Carlton in Cannes.

Hard to believe that this photo was taken in December! I think this is the eastern part of Cannes before La Croisette Cape. The hills rise just behind the buildings, at right is the neighbourhood called La Californie.

La Croisette Beach is very select, a friend tell me she saw women sunbathing there with their jewels! Or it was at Bijou Plage (Jewel Beach), situated at the point of La Croisette Cape ?

Beyond those hills is Super Cannes and, further, the city of Vallauris famous for its ceramics, a city where Jean Marais a major French actor and Picasso lived.

Beautiful photos! France really is a beautiful country.

That picture of Cannes from the sea really is magnificent. Great work.
