Jardin des Tuilleries -- Sunset



From the plateau of the west end of Jardin des Tuileries, the fading light displays in silhouette some memorable landmarks of Paris.

Beautiful, Genie. The Tuileries and the banks of the Seine between Le Grand Palais and Pont Neuf are my favourite places in the world for an evening stroll. Or indeed a stroll at any time of the day. Thank you for the reminder.

Lovely evening image.The Eiffel Tower typically dominates the skyline. I am curious to your favorite part of the city. We spent such little time up on Montmarte but really enjoyed the views of the city from there.

Cynthia said...

That's a great one :)

Alexa said...

Oh la la, la lumiere! And that's just for starters . . .

James said...

Wow! Wonderful shot! Very romantic too!

Post card perfect Genie!
Cheers from Montreal.

PS: You lucked out on the weather, I suspect. Due to really bad weather (it rained buckets), my "Springtime in Paris" experience was a total disappointment. Will have to give it another shot.

Loree said...

Lovely. We missed the Tuileries when we were there but if we ever go back to Paris, I am determined to spend some time in there with my camera.

Jack said...

A pretty place at a nice time of day, Genie.

Randy said...

Very powerful looking.

Un grand coup de la statue dans le fond de la Tour Eiffel à Paris. Comme moi, il n'est pas seulement une statue silhouette. Bien éclairée. Beaucoup de salutations! Peter.

Sara Louise said...

Stunning! Postcard perfect :-)

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

There are some days in which in a period of an hour or two I can just load my memory card with images. The camera is happy, the lighting is perfect, and the details present themselves.

This time of year, Paris delights us with "extended daylight" hours. One can get exhausted staying up late and getting up early, but I can always sleep when I get back home.

The barricades are already lining Ave des Champs Elysées in preparation for the 14 juillet parade and festivities... wish we were all there. What a party that would be!

Bisous,
Genie
