Seattle:Hue, Vietnam:Venice:I am a firm believer that cityscapes create the most stunning pictures. In fact, give me a city break over a beach holiday any day! There is nothing more breathtaking than a concrete jungle under a cloak of rain. It need not be beautiful but it certainly gives me pause for thought.

What do you think of these three pouring wet cities around the globe? We have Seattle, Washington (obviously!), Hué, Vietnam and a bit of a beautiful rainy surprise, Venice!
