The Collegiale church in Le Dorat has an imposing tower with a four-sided steepled roof. Fortuitously, there is a clock on each side of this sloping roof (which meets the criterion for this week’s Black & White Challenge) and as the sun sets on a very bright day, there is a pleasing contrast between the light and shady sides.
Indeed, I think this is brought out more effectively with a monochrome treatment, as here.

Not a hundred per cent on brief for Frank’s challenge this week, but it’s worth seeing this unusual (I could say striking, but I don’t think it does) water-clock – or clock with water feature at any rate – to be found in the centre of the town of Thiers, in the Auvergne region of central France.
At least you know exactly what hour it was.
