Header Competition # 35 - Tick Tock - Hear the Clock

The header theme this week by me and is "Tic Tock - Hear the Clock". Mac,TomDarlaGail's Man and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. Martha is on a break.

While travelling through Europe I saw so many great clocks that I wanted to share them with you. I have to thank my friend Pietro for showing me so many great Italian clocks.How do you like this one? It also tells the time of the year.
Here is a pair  of clocks on the same neat tower.

How about this pair of clocks, yes that is a castle behind the tower.

Check out the date on this Sun Dial, I know it doesn't tick but it does tell time.

You can see the one I chose above.

This header is rich! I like how the metallic gold is contrasted with the deep, blue sky.

They seem to have some great clock towers across Europe. Maybe one day I'll get to see some of them.

Stunning clocks Tom. Each one a masterpiece.

That's one of the things I miss about Europe, when you didn't have your watch on, you could always tell time by looking at the clock on the town/city square!

BTW I love the hotel sign in your header!
