Orthez, Pyrénées-Atlantiques France-6468 
 At nearly midnight late one night while driving to southern Spain this 14th century bridge and it's central tower caught my eye at Orthez in south western France. The next two days were spent waiting for the rain to stop, finally it did in the late afternoon and a twenty second burst of light appeared. The sun then disappeared and grey became the dominant colour again.
