Menaçant

On Monday, there was a bit of a dramatic sky over the palace...

Lundi, le ciel était menaçant sur le château...

Impressive clouds, great occasion for a couple of interesting shots.

This is a fantastic capture, Ciel!
Rain and thunder clouds make for some really dramatic photos, but I don't think many of us can capture them with a castle! ;)

It's been looking like this in New York City lately too, we've had terrible thunderstorms for the last week.

Now Ciel, tell me you used a zoom lens here. I know you did because the distances are compressed.

Powerful photographs! Did you get stormy weather?

James said...

Very dramatic and threatening but beautiful. Like my ex..j/k about that part. :-)

Antjas said...

Formidable!

Leif Hagen said...

I love the top photo of the clouds looming over Versailles!

Dina said...

Menacing clouds indeed. And somehow these photos have the look of vintage postcards.

A French novelist just might refer to those skies as foreboding! I love they way they are brighter just above the palace. They almost look photoshopped into the picture. So much visual interest and to think you didn't want to hold them back for Skywatch Friday!

Et voilà encore la preuve que ton (gros) nuage ne te quitte plus....
Cela ne fait rien, le ciel de Quimper siet(d?) bien à Versailles...

Une seule parade : courir ou un parapluie !

Are you having an unusually wet summer? Seems like many people are experiencing unusual weather.

Halcyon said...

That's a gorgeous sky! I love the drama.

Beautiful, but a little spooky! It's been raining over here in Georgia too.

Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comments. I have fond memories of a visit to the Chateau and an afternoon walking around Versailles. Your photos are bringing back the memories I have of that trip. I'm glad I found your site.

Very dramatic and more than a little menacing. Did they live up to their promise of a downpour?

Small City Scenes said...

I would say that is a very dramatic sky. It looks full of rain---please send it this way.
Gorgeous shots. MB

Great capture of the sky and the buildings!

@ all: actually, no! It didn't rain on Monday evening!
@ Jacob: you've obviously had a good night's sleep!

It looks like you brought the storm with you from vacation. It allowed for some beautiful photos, though. I really enjoyed these!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Yes, the sky does appear to be a menacing one!

Karen said...

Wow! Absolutely beautiful. It looks like a painting. I am definitely going to be visiting Versaille in October and I know I'll need more than one visit to see it all.
