Tower of light…

 

Time to change pace… I’ve been posting images taken fairly close to home these days, but today I felt like something a little different. This was taken a couple of years ago, during my first visit to the City of Light. What a magnificent experience…I was completely taken with the sounds, light, and romantic atmosphere of this city. Tres magnifique! This shot was taken just an hour or so before we embarked on the experience every tourist must take part in when visiting Paris… yes, the long, arduous trek to the top of Tour Eiffel. In what seemed like days later, crammed elbow to elbow with several thousand fellow brethren, my family and I emerged to view what has got to be one of the most fabulous urbanscapes in existence.

 

Moments later, we traversed the elevator to the second tier, where we were rewarded, once again, with what has to be the pinnacle of the Parisienne experience…lights in every direction, sparkling like a million diamonds, at the top of the world. Hope you enjoy…

  1. I’m jealous of whatever camera you use–my pictures from atop La Tour didn’t even come to 1/1000th of yours! You perfectly captured the magic of being at the top. Beautiful beautiful photos!

    • Thank you very much… yes, it’s a wonderful thing to be able to go to 1600 ISO and capture an exposure. I appreciate your very nice comments… it truly is a magical experience.
