The field of beautiful poppies stand out red and vibrant against the backdrop of the cliffs of Gorges du Verdon near Moustiers Ste Marie, in the Alpes de Haute region of the Provence in France. The Gorges du Verdon is a river canyon that has a reputation for being so beautiful and is the world's second largest gorge.

The poppy flower is common in this area of the world and they often grow in large groups together so that is why there is such an extensive field of poppies growing at the base of these cliffs. The poppy can be any colour, it doesn't have to be red, but red is more common than any other colour. The poppy has a strong place in mythology for both sleep and death.

... The cliffs attract rock climbers to the area as well and is very popular with multi-pitch climbers, which is when a wall is scaled by stopping many times at belay stations.

This particular area shown in the picture is at the end of the gorge which is also part of the French Riviera and is known for its stunning beauty. The combination of gorgeous weather, breathtaking views and a wide range of outdoor activities, make this a really attractive destination for tourists and residents alike.
