Photographer's Note

Cassis is a pleasant town on the Mediterranean coast of France, east of Marseilles. It is located in a very scenic part of the coast. This photo was taken just before sunset, when the low sun lit up the orange cliffs of Cap Canaille in the background. The tourist literature says that this is the highest sea cliff in Europe, but I don't believe that. The tourist literature is usually wrong whenever it mentions the highest, longest, widest, biggest, deepest, oldest, newest or any other superlative. Maybe it's the highest in France.

The stone building in the middle is the Cassis Chateau, a medieval castle that has been rebuilt in modern times and is now a private hotel. I'm not sure what a private hotel is, but I assume the main characteristic is that it's very expensive.
