Menton Beauty

Menton is a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. Situated on the French Riviera, along the Franco-Italian border, it is nicknamed perle de la France ("Pearl of France").         ~ Wikipedia
This is a beautiful photograph, by Erich Westendarp, of the scenic harbor on the French Riviera at Menton in south-eastern France.  Here are the visual elements that I think make this harbour so beautiful and scenic:
  • the cute lighthouse appears to situated on its own island. 
  • the buildings are painted in various, yet complimentary colors.  
  • the mountains beyond the roof-line of the buildings, 
  • the neatly parked boats,
  • the foggy, cloudy sky
  • the evergreen trees
  • and the water.
It's easy to see why Menton is called the 'Pearl of France'.
