Eiffel tower reflection by sunset.

November 6, 2018

The first shot with my brand-new camera! If you want to photograph one of the most iconic buildings in the entire world in a different way than most, you need to think outside the box. I was surrounded by hundreds of tourist who want to capture a picture. There was only one place where I was by myself. The last level of the Trocadero fountain. So, after a bit of hesitation, I finally made the call to climb down and capture the Eiffel tower with its reflection in the puddle. And last but not least, this sunset was just breathtaking! I have rarely seen such magnificent sunsets lately. And this time, I even saw one in one of the most unlikely places: Paris, the city of an overcast white sky. After taking this picture, I decided to pack away my camera and just enjoy the moment, watching the Eiffel tour sparkle at the full hour for 5 minutes.

That was my third visit to Paris. And it was definitely the most beautiful one!
