Two Views of Mont Sainte Victoire
Mont Ste. Victoire is one of the most famous mountains in the world because it was painted by Cezanne 87 times. However, this is a different view of the mountain, the eastern face. It rises out of a plain and dominates the landscape north of Aix (pronounced "ex" for those who don't speak French).
This photo was taken on the hill where Cezanne actually painted. You see here the mountain as it appears in his many, many paintings of it.
