Catching Sunlight in Versailles

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!

    Beautiful shots and great information. It’s great to see such passionate interest in French culture. I am a French teacher who has taught various eras of French history for many years. I would love to guest write an article for your blog about the Versailles and Louis XIV if you are interested. There would be no charge, but I would just insert a small blurb at the end about my book on Versailles that will be published this fall. Let me know if you’re interested: jrobins2005@gmail.com. Thanks! JPRobinson.org
