Classic architecture in Nimes

The beautiful Carre d'Art a Norman Foster designed art gallery is a delightful light and airy structure.

And in the square opposite, the fantastic Roman Maison Carre with its superbly detailed ceiling in the portico

And viewed from the Maison Carre, spot the crocodile on the roof!

An early morning hot air balloon ride over the Luberon valley. Just cresting the hill over Roussillon village and soaring towards the Petit Luberon mountains to the south. A picture of serenity.

Scariest scarecrow ever seen!  In the gardens at Salagon

A prettier prospect in the flower beds.  The themed gardens have over 1700 species of plants.
