Mont Ventoux as the riders reach the climb for the first time – This time high up through the branches of the pine trees, which do grow there, at least at this point. The climb leaves the trees behind the higher it goes.

Lots of people, motobikes, flags all the fanfare and hurrah as the Tour arrives on the mountain.. the first time.
