Taking in the views of Chinon

The medieval fortress and royal castle are big draws in this quaint town along the Vienne river but the real charm comes from being perched above and taking in the sweeping views of medieval Chinon. This shot was taken over Easter weekend - a time that should have felt more springlike but instead was damp and cloyingly cold. Even as winter's last vestiges cloaked our surroundings, the magic of the region swelled.
