Photos of Chinon and Crissay-sur-Manse: December 2008

Here are a few photos of Chinon and Crissay-sur-Manse taken on 23rd December 2008, which I have just got round to sorting out. Both places can be wonderfully photogenic, especially when the light is sharp and clear.

Lovely pictures of Chinon, still my favourtie place in France. Also a fabulous sky, what a treat in winter.
