Reflections on the Seine




Walking along Quai de Bourbon with an eye on the Seine, the clear sapphire sky made a nice contrast to the moss on Pont Marie. The water and lights provided a green-tinged reflection in the cold, dark river.

For more reflections look here at James' Newtown Area Photo.

Recognized the Seine! At night it looks more romantic than during the day:)
