I got back yesterday from a week in Aix-en-Provence, a town that holds a special place in my heart since I first spent some time there as a student.  On this occasion I'd rented a rooftop apartment less than 10 metres from the 500 year old clock tower in the town square.  What the apartment lacked in floor space it more than made up for with its stunning views.  At midnight on New Year's Eve I took this photograph through the glass door to the terrace so that I would remember what I could see at that moment.  I'll be counting the days until I can go back there again.
