Hi Folks! Corsica 2010 is coming to an end, but still we have some amazing rock formations to see – The Calanques of Piana – and some fabulous sea colours...
I was thinking of making this a post in French language, but as my French speaking commentators are becoming more and more exceptional, I decided to leave it in English... ;) Hope you like it!! Enjoy and have a great weekend!!

It is an amazing coastline the way the rocks leap out of the water. The sea colours match those of Western Australia. Come over and visit Geradlton.

Ce message n'est pas trop dur à suivre en anglais Gil, de plus tu perdrais tes visiteurs anglophones, j'ai bien perdu les miens petit à petit et dès lors je ne me donne plus le mal de translater.
La mer est bleue, la mer est verte elle est transparente mais surtout elle est partout et il semble très difficile d'accoster....

Beautiful pictures of a very beautiful spot, Gil!
I have loved the color of the sea in this series of Corsica posts.
This post has some of the best sea shots - the "nuanced" shots are astonishing.
Have a great Christmas & a Happy New Year!!

Hi Everybody! Trying to recover the weeks without posting, answering your comments and visiting your blogs...
