Chaud !

It can get really warm in the palace grounds, looking towards the "grand canal"!

Il peut faire très, très chaud en plein cagnard quand on observe le grand canal !

When does it get warm there? We were there at the end of June and it was so cold ... colder than a .... well, it was really, really cold!

It's so beautiful, though, we wandered all over the place anyway.

There was no activity in the "grand canal" the day we were present...

Nice shot, Ciel!

Maybe with a bit milder temperature one can enjoy the place at its best...

Nice photo! I like the little bit of blue water, and the shadow on the ground. I really enjoy visiting!

yes, the heat. Arizona is getting quite hot at the moment. funny though that people here do not use umbrellas to deflect the sun. they really should as your photo captures another functional use of an umbrella quite nicely.

It is so hard to take pictures holding an umbrella too.

I remember being there on a freezing cold winter's day in Jan 1981 I think....a little hot chocolate warmed us up!

Perhaps, if the jacket or sweater were removed, it might be a little cooler.

A nice bumpershoot picture. We live in the rain zone too. MB

I guess the weather changes. When we were there in May 2006 it rained at first, but when it cleared it was lovely.

Though people don't do this much here, it gets quite warm. This is common in California, where I used to live. My dad once told me he saw a lady with an umbrella, trying to keep the sun's hot rays off of her head...except the umbrella was made of clear plastic. The sun shone right through. It made him laugh.

Personally, I wouldn't be wearing that much clothing in that heat, lol.

Parasols are not such a bad idea!

I really enjoyed viewing your photos and it brought back memories of my trip to France about 10 years ago. On that trip we spent 11 days in France and were able to spent an afternoon at Versailles (which was not enough). It was something I had wanted to do but never knew if I would get the opportunity. Now I want to return and see it all again (and more).

That's a clever one!

Sure but it should be better to avoid a black umbrella ;-)

Quite outstanding!!! your shot

Excellent perspective. You can see far off in the distance how small the people are. This garden is enormous and a pleasure to walk.

J'adore cette image : le parapluie en guise de parasol... La brume de chaleur et le soleil ont "détouré" la silhouette, les différents cones de la haie et éloigné le Grand Canal et le reste du Parc dans un flou artistique...
