01 - Mont St Victoire is in the south of France.
I took this picture when we visited Aix-en-Provence in 1996.
It shows two drastically different-colored rocks. The rocks in
the foreground are reddish in color - they formed in a
riverbed. The rocks in the background are light grey and
formed under the ocean millions of years ago.
02 - This is a dam holding back water which is a
turquoise color because if has lots of limestone dissolved in it.
03 - This photo clearly shows that humans are
very good at modifying the surface of the Earth. Agriculture
has changed the way the countryside looks.
04 & 05 - Brittany, west
coast of France. Sand is moved in different ways depending on
whether it is being pushed by wind or by water
06 - The beachfront is a place of intense
erosion. As a result, the roots of plants are sometimes
exposed when the soil is washed away. This allows us to see
what is normally hidden under the Earth's surface.
