Alignement

Who wants to play hide and seek in the palace grounds?
----------------------------------
Qui veut jouer à cache-cache dans le parc du château ?

Would be perfect for Coneheads... Perfect prospective of manicured trees: we can hardly see a leaf out of place.

Ha, wonderful colors. Playful image.

Alignement couleur de soleil bien vue.

I don't know why, but this photo made me laugh! Maybe it was your caption. Or maybe it just seems silly to have pointed trees all in a row like chess pieces. I like the little person in the picture!

Good question! I don't remember these trees, but I didn't get to see the whole of the palace grounds...love your composition here, Ciel...

Great idea! It would be nice for this weekend! What a fabulous blue sky and the green grass like a neat contrast!
Have a nice weekend dear Ciel!

Boy, those are wonderful looking trees.

This looks like computer animation! A Pixar feature about the French monrchy?

Hilda said...

Count me in! That would be a lot of fun!

Fantastic photo, Ciel!

Nice landscape. Are those cedar trees?

cieldequimper said...

@Frankie/Nick: I'm not sure what they are but no, not cedar trees. At least, I don't think so.

Look like giant chess pieces for the king to play with.

Edward Scissorhands!!! Fantastic!

You are absolutely right about Michael Jackson! 24 hours a day on TV! Not so much for Iran!...

this is a fun capture. good eye. I want to run around these trees. I have enjoyed your comments on my website. Sorry for the delay in responding as I went to a photography workshop the past week and I went to a cultural workshop about the fruit of the saguaro cactus and the Tohono Oodham Indians who harvest it each year, and I actually harvested some of the fruit from the very tall saguaros. We will see if I have learned some new skills to improve my photos and I will share some of the experiences with you on my website.

Une sorte de jeu de croquet géant.....

This is a wonderful photo! I love it.
I will play hide and seek. Yes the two flowers are peonies, good guess!
