Despite the fact that it’s pretty much the dead of winter [or at least, that’s what the ass-numbing cold seems to be indicating] the gardens of Versailles are still as beautiful as ever.
Since I’m lucky enough to live no more than a 20 minute walk away from the Château, I’m usually the go-to-girl when it comes to showing out-of-towners around. That’s what happened on Thursday, and I spent a short part of the afternoon walking around and photographing the front part of the grounds.
It really isn’t much more complicated than that. The sun sets freakishly early nowadays [sometimes I wake up on weekends and then realize that it’s dark already and I basically spent the entire day sleeping] so by the time I left the gardens to head to work, the sun was already on its way down.
That means long shadows and dreamy lighting, though, so I’m not complaining!
