A seagull circles the tower of the sixth century Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, Istria, Croatia. A UNESCO world heritage site, some of the fine mosaic paving dates back to the fourth century.

The Adriatic Sea can just be seen through the rooftops at the upper left of this image, the basilica’s bells woke us gently, and the rusty skylight in the lower centre of the photo appears in the poem Tower that was inspired by this scene
