On this Sunday, on the finish of September, we left the south of England to spend simply over 5 weeks in Provence. The flight from London to Marseille gave us breathtaking views of jap France. Here is a photograph report.
I took the photographs on board the aircraft with my iPhone – my digicam was protected in my suitcase. Sadly, the standard is not fairly as much as scratch, however these pictures offer you a glimpse of the magnificent panorama we loved on board the aircraft from London to Marseille.
Our Flight from London to Marseille
Within the morning, our taxi took us to Heathrow airport in cloudy circumstances.
The primary a part of the flight happened above the clouds.
Then, as our aircraft headed south, the clouds dissipated, revealing lovely France.
On this picture, you possibly can see the River Loire and the city of Nevers.
The Alps and the Rhône Valley
It was at this level that we noticed Mont Blanc within the distance, simply recognisable within the panorama.
Excellent view of town of Saint-Etienne:
View of Saint-Etienne and, on the high of the picture, the Lyon city space.
South of Lyon, we adopted the Rhône valley from north to south, with Mont Blanc and the Alps on the horizon. Right here, close to the city of Valence.
Here is a powerful view of the city of Orange. We’re now flying in Provence!
Mont Ventoux and Mont Blanc. It is an unbelievable view you can’t see from the bottom. From Mont Ventoux, you possibly can solely see the Ecrins massif, and no additional.
Between the Vaucluse plateau and the Luberon mountains, this is our future playground: the Luberon! You may see a lot of the vacationer villages within the area… however sadly, the poor high quality of my iphone means I can not see them with any increased decision.
Just a few seconds later, town of Aix-en-Provence reveals itself to us, with Montagne-Sainte-Victoire, simply recognisable with its rocky profile.
Within the foreground of the primary picture, you possibly can see the TGV-Méditerranée line and the Roquefavour aqueduct, the design of which was impressed by the Pont du Gard.
Then, rapidly, you possibly can see the blue Mediterranean Sea!
And town of Marseille earlier than our dazzled eyes! I would by no means seen Marseille earlier than, and this flight was the proper alternative to find the Cité Phocéenne.
Within the subsequent picture, you possibly can see the Vieux-Port and the Iles du Frioul (together with the Château d’If).
On this picture, you possibly can see the south of Marseille, with the Calaques stretching so far as Cassis.
This picture exhibits Marseille from the west, with the Montagne Sainte-Victoire, the landmark of Aix-en-Provence, within the background.
After a flight of round 1 hour quarter-hour, we lastly landed at Marseille-Provence airport, overlooking the Etang de Berre.
The airport is dominated by the Saracen tower on the high of the Vitrolles rock.
