Cimetière Montmartre

Spring arrives with new growth in shades of green
and accents of pink blooms

Very interesting contrast.

The blossoms do brighten up what is otherwise a somber place.

I love this beautiful cemetery, a favorite spot. This is a lovely photo.

I'm always wondering, Genie, how you get your spectacular angles for your photos? Where were you? Perched atop a tall Cemetery monument? Clinging to a tall obelisk snapping away? Give a girl a hint.

Roseann, I can certainly tell you the secret to this view from above. Rue Caulaincourt has a beautiful lattice metal viaduct (Pont Caulaincourt) that runs over the cemetery. It makes a perfect location for peering down into the cemetery below. Thank you for commenting!
