The photo above shows a view of the prominent chalk cliffs near the Normandy coast of France. Chalk is a form of soft, white limestone. Here in northern France, and across the English Channel in Dover, England, the chalk is very fine-grained. Noted artists, such as Eugene Boudin and Claude Monet, have long been attracted to these renowned cliffs. Photo taken in June of 2008.
