Paris - Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower taken on a very cold November night. The Tower is such an iconic site it's probably nigh on impossible to capture a 'different' view of it. Still... I had a go. A little known fact - 6,719,200 people visited the tower in 2006 and believe it or not more than 200,000,000 have seen it since its construction. Another factoid - maintenance of the tower includes applying 50 - 60 tons of 3 graded tones of paint every seven years to protect it from rust !
