Eiffel Tower, Paris, France
Hi Folks! Here is my version of the world famous, iconic, wrought iron Eiffel Tower. Hope you like it!
It is a stunning architectural feature and Paris would not be the same without it! This was taken on a sunny day in 2003 during the 42.7 degrees C heatwave that killed 868 of the elderly Paris population from 21st to 27th July. This was the second heatwave of the year, the first having seen 567 deaths. The event sparked off concerns over global warming. It is a sad context linked to what was otherwise a wonderful visit!
