ET sunset

On the one really sunny afternoon we had in Paris 
last month, we made a beeline for the rooftop terrace 
of the Galeries Lafayette to catch the sun 
setting behind the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais.
I think it was well worth braving the 
cold up there for this view!

  1. You made a wonderful photo, and, yes, braving the cold was worth it!!

  2. Amazing shot.Shows beauty of both the tower and the sky.I love it!

  3. Great photo for SWF!Have a nice weekend.

  4. Good choice to brave the cold for this. It is gorgeous!

  5. I was looking for the extraterrestrial ET until your photo appeared... ;)

    Nothing better that the French ET...

    Hope to be back visiting next week.

  6. Wonderful! I instantly knew the spot you stood on and it really made me smile.

  7. Wow, a jaw-dropping shot! This is excellent!!

  8. And our hair being ripped out by the wind. Great shot.

  9. Very, very nice shot!! A just reward for your efforts and perseverance. The two clouds look as if one will pass in back and the other in front of the Tower. Pretty cool!

  10. That is so beautiful, i wonder how far you are from the tower when you shoot that. I haven't seen it up close, only almost a 2 meter tall structure on the plane from CDG airport on the way to Strasbourg.
