La Tour Eiffel - en hiver


It was a dark and snowy night but the twinkling of la Tour lights up the December sky.


(Taken from the Suresnes American Cemetery, in the suburbs of Paris, only five miles from city center.  The 7.5 acre cemetery contains the graves of 1,541 Americans who died in World War I and 24 Unknown American War Dead from World War II.  The cemetery is located high on the slopes of Mont Valerien)

So, you were at the cemetery at night while it was snowing with the light of la Tour to guide you back 'home'.....oh, the memories you have made while in Paris....thank you for sharing them with us.

Great shot! It was a dark and snowy night - after a lovely dinner with friends. We should email them again to say we are headed back!

Suresnes is well worth the short hop from central Paris. A beautiful and moving spot.
