Paris to the southwest from Arc de Triomphe

To me, the Eiffel Tower seems like the worst way to see Paris. Why remove the city’s greatest landmark from your vantage point in order to find an above-the-city perspective? The Arc de Triomphe’s roof, 164 feet (50 meters) above street-level serves as a magnificent stage for photographing La Ville-Lumière. This photo, from a point-and-shoot Canon SX120 IS, keeps the city’s anchor in frame. The white wall of clouds almost acts as a curtain with blue haze separating the foreground from the photo’s background. The hint of a pastel sky pays homage to Rococo.Paris to the southwest from Arc de Triomphe
