Photo of the Week : July 10 2000

Sunflowers near Capestang, Herault, Languedoc

Sunflowers in bloom, near Capestang and Canal du Midi, Herault

Sunflowers look particularly attractive in the south of France, perhaps because of Van Gogh's paintings but also because they have a supporting cast of a great variety of other wild flowers that can be found in the nearby fields and verges. This field is set off by a chateau hidden in distant trees.
