French caught faking beach pictures

The French tourist board has been caught using fake pictures to lure tourists to their beaches for the second time. Earlier in the year an advertising campaign trying to attract visitors to France during the Olympics used a photograph of a beach in Cape Town pretending it was northern France. [caption id="attachment_460" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="The image of Cape Town which France used to advertise thier beaches"]The image of Cape Town which France used to advertise thier beaches[/caption] When this was rumbled they rushed out a new campaign. But instead of using a picture of a French beach they then used one of Clearwater Beach almost 4500 miles away in Florida! The latest library picture, from iStockphoto.com, showing six young people running towards a setting sun (seen above), has now been taken down. ‘What’s wrong with French beaches?’ we asked Atout France. We are still awaiting a reply.
