In many places around the world today, August 16, when people visit the Bing home page, they’re going to find a beautiful image of the Basque Coast at Biarritz.
We say “in many places” because Bing, like other search engines, is divided into zones and countries, and the same image isn’t always used for them all. For example, curiously, the default image for France is not this image, nor is it in the US, Japan, or China.
However, those who do use Bing in Spanish, or in the countries of South Korea, Turkey, Sweden, or Russian, can enjoy this beautiful image.
By the way, this isn’t the first time Microsoft has used an image of the Basque Coast, although, in the case of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, it was used all around the world.
