Photo: Large Setting Sun Umbrella Tree Village Aigues Mortes Bouches Du Rhone Provence France

The sun is a large bright yellow ball of fire as it blazes in the sky before setting on another day over a vineyard and an umbrella tree near the village of Aigues Mortes along the Bouches du Rhone in picturesque Provence, France.

Vineyards in France are plentiful and some of the best wine in the world is produced all over France. There are many acres of vineyards on plains and over lush hills in the French countryside and sights such as the sun setting over this vineyard near the village of Aigues Mortes in the Bouches du Rhone region of the Provence, is a common sight.

Aigues Mortes is a medieval walled village in southern France and stepping inside is like taking a step back in time. It is thought that the foundations for the village were laid down in 102 BC and the area around this village is also steeped in history with some of these vineyards turning out wines for centuries.

... French wines make up 34% of the world's wine. The French take great pride in their vineyards and in their wine, and areas like this vineyard are well looked after as it is such a successful business.

Provence is the area in the south of France that borders Italy; it has gorgeous weather for most of the year, and this is partly why grapes for wine grow so well in this region. As the sun that is setting on another day rises in the sky tomorrow, it will be high and hot, and the grapes for the next season of wine will grow plump, juicy, and delicious.
