Photographer's Note

A postcard for "Biking Canadian Jean-Pierre" :o) Le Mont Ventoux photographié depuis Montmirail.

* * * * * *

About the Mont Ventoux, Roland Barthes, French philosopher and bicycle racing fan, said:
"The Ventoux is dreadful. Bald, it's the spirit of Dry: Its climate (it is much more an essence of climate than a geographic place) makes it a damned terrain, a testing place for heroes, something like a higher hell."
