View up the river Seine from slightly below the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel tower both is an impressive view and commands one as well from its observation decks. Even in winter, the lines to go up the tower were impressive. I visited Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower the most of any place in Paris. They just really defined the landscape in Paris for me. And certainly, I think, the Eiffel Tower would be the most universally recognized sight around the world. For many years after it’s construction, it was the tallest manmade object in the world, having finally surpassed the pyramids at Giza in Egypt.

  • Thanks Ann – I love it when you get those moody skies but there’s still sunlight coming through in places, makes for some drama!

    positively mouthwatering image, Mark … good heavens … should be on postcards!!!!!!!! GORGEOUS!!!!! And those CLOUDS!!!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!!

  • Thanks Lois! It was a great day to be in Paris, mostly cloudy but if you managed to be at the right place at the right time, the sun would shine through a gap and you’d get these gorgeous scenes of light on buildings, etc. with those moody clouds beyond… couldn’t have ordered nicer.

    I think this must be the most aethetically pleasing view of the Eiffel Tower I have ever seen. St Focus arranged perfect lighting for you LOL

  • Thanks Jesika – I didn’t know photographers had a patron saint, but St. Focus makes perfect sense! Much appreciate the kind comment! :-)
