In the last trip to France I mostly followed the river Durance. The Durance is a river that rises in Briancon (the Italian-French border) and flows into the Rhone near Avignon.


A suggestion 
The water we see is on its way to a sea, which is often in the evening news in the last time, but in connection with terrible things. And your panoramic point is a rocky hill, probably limestone, with at least a chapel of St. John.

@Wolfgang: How did you guess?
@Jörg: Justly :-)

40 km away, to the left of the Sommet du Ruth (not visible in the pano), it is the place where crashed the plane Germanwings.

Hello, Guiseppe, I read your question only today. The answer is: I ''scanned'' a few bigger rivers coming out of the alps on their south side searching an artificial lake with the beginning of a canal. Because nothing did fit on the italian side, I remembered your visit to Avignon a time ago; so I found the Durance by accident.
