Caspar David Friedrich's Dream

Fontane de Vaucluse is a little village which is home to mysterious spring at the base of a cliff, it springs in part from an underground aquifer although not everything about its source is known (Jacques Cousteau investigated at one point). Also of interest is the intensely green vegetation growing at the bottom of the Sorgue River which flows out from the Spring, which gives the water an intensely green look. The presenter in the top photo is my travelling companion, Jenny.
There is an ancient fort you can climb up to

I hope Caspar David Friedrich saw this place.

Martine- Fontane de Vaucluse is sublime, and so is Jenny - The photos are pretty much passively soaking up the wonders.
