A better Trianon than yesterday. Excellent colors and reflections, the place looks completely different and much better today!

Jacob said...

Good job, Ciel. The reflections are outstanding.

Owen said...

And I can almost imagine a reflection of Marie Antoinette's dress there somewhere, must be an echo still floating about there ...

Pam said...

They are both beautiful shots. I like the colorful trees reflecting in the water.

The second photo especially is very inviting. I am imagining an almost impossibly blue sky that befits a king.

I like these reflections made even more interesting by the floating leaves.

I like the pond. Frogs there? hopefully not, you guys eat frogs' legs!

Great reflections and the statue is so romantic. Thanks for the visit.

I like the colors in these pictures and the reflections. I'm so glad that I started this meme. It's great to see all kinds of great reflections like these.

Beautiful sky to have it reflected so blue in the water! Love that statue reflection but I ahd to enlarge it to see it at its best.

The French are masters of reflection. Lovely photo the blues make it so cool and calm. Subtle!

BaysideLife said...

Nice reflections. The colors, and of course, the leaves in the water, certainly say Autumn.

At first glance, I thought these were children on the island.

You have so many beautiful spots to photograph.

Well even if you don't celebrate Hallowe'en as such it is All Soul's Day and then Mass tomorrow on All Saints Day. Smile! MB

Lovely reflections at Le Grand Trianon! Thanks for sharing them! And thank you for visiting my post! :)

J'aime beaucoup tes photos du grand Trianon, desert, dans la douce lumière d'automne..Les reflets sont doux, berceau ideal pour les angelots, et la sensation d'abandon donnée par les algues flottantes donne un sentiment de mélancolie.

The blue of the sky turns to so deep and dark in the water. I like the feeling of the sculpture. Those two kids in a small raft, it´s so real.

Martha (Menagerie) said...

Nice reflection shots! :-)

RuneE said...

Now, that is a place I would have like to see!

Bim said...

I like the structure created by the algal blobs floating near the surface...but I suspect the water could do with a little cleaning :)

These are really beautiful. I especially love the shadow and reflection in the first. Kathy

Carletta said...
