Sunset on the River Loire

I grabbed this shot one fine evening in Amboise, France which is a wonderful little town in the Loire Valley there.  We spent a few days in Amboise during our vacation to France back in June and loved every minute of it. 

I tend to travel to larger cities for work, so most of my photos are also from cities.  But I found that I really enjoyed this little town, as it offers up so much history and beauty, not to mention some incredible architecture.   

But I also found that if you show up at the right time, you can get some wonderful shots of this famous river as it winds its way through town.  I happened to be in the area at sunset one evening, and fired off the brackets for this HDR shot with a big smile on my face.
