Shadow Shot Sunday 175 - Paris


A recent trip to Paris in December is the setting for these night shots with the Eiffel Tower taking backstage to the patterns of tree shadows snaking across the foreground.....


It's hard to get a new angle on the iconic building that normally takes centrestage and enjoys hogging the limelight, but these puddles provide perhaps a new reflective and shadowy perspective....


Visiting Paris in December is certainly a magical time to go - it is pretty easy to see why it has been dubbed "City of Lights".....

The Tour Eiffel is so iconic, once the tallest structure in the world. The cast steel construction is stylish and strong and its shape so special. The nighttime shadows are wonderful. My daughter captured the similar style of the tower in 2004:

Paris is such a striking contrast to Monaco! I don't think I've seen so many shots of Paris in December. It is magical.
