Photographer's Note

the thumbnail and the 800pix picture are not very attractive, the only way to appreciate this stitch is to see the large format... or if you don't, see previous pictures of that place taken by other members :)

Moustier lies at the western entrance to the Gorges du Verdon. The village has been a center of the pottery trade, especially faence, for centuries.

The village clings a hundred or so meters up the side of a limestone cliff. A spring flows out of the cliff, creating a waterfall directly out of the center of town. At twilight, the sun strikes the south-facing cliff, creating a magical diffuse pink light for a few minutes on clear days.
