Lumières des écuries royales

On Saturday afternoons, when the Académie du Spectacle Equestre is performing, little lights appear in front of the royal stables (if you click on this last link, you can watch a video, in French yes, but it will give you an idea of the show.)

Les samedis après-midi de représentation de l'Académie du Spectacle Equestre, des bougies apparaissent sur le parvis des grandes écuries du roi... (Si vous cliquez sur ce dernier lien, vous pouvez voir une vidéo).

How soft the lighting in the first photo. You can almost hear the clomping of hooves.

Are the lights in the ground? This is all so beautiful.
I love horses and love to ride, so for me your video link was very exciting. The horses and stables are exquisite!

Sparse candles at night on a cobbled pavement, we can almost hear the horses approaching...

I watched the video...quite impressive! Majestic animals and talented riders. Methinks we'll put this on our "must-see" list for our next trip to Paris et environs.

I like the lumieres also ... do people put out such lumieres on Christmas Eve? This has become a tradition in some parts of the US.
