Le Rocher


Taken just after 7 a.m. yesterday on the way to Monaco from Menton. I stopped the car, Roquebrune village is way up to my right - this is the view from the road, zoomed in on the Rock.

The tall building you see is the Oceanographic Museum. Click on the link to see this beautiful building from the other side.

I've been there!!! It's a beautiful museum with an awsome view at the top!! The Prince of Monaco was a friend of our King Carlos I (died in 1908), who was also an oceanographer himself!!

We are used to see it with the sky and the sea "Mediterranean" blue,
but I do like your choice of the morning lights and very soft colors.
