La colonnade du Grand Trianon

An archive photo today: the very classical marble colonnade of the Grand Trianon castle in the Palace grounds.

Classique en marbre, ceci est une photo prise l'an passé.

Quelle élégance!

Jacob said...

This is so cool-looking (I mean that literally)...cool and clean and shiny. And, as Lorrie said, elegant!

By the way, we ate in a little bakery cafe for lunch today...French-themed...we had baguette sandwiches which were delicious!

Jeux d'ombre et de lumière, jeux de lignes et de courbes, perspectives..il y a plein de choses à voir dans cette photo!

The pattern of the floor is almost hypnotic, I like the geometry of the image.

Loree said...

beautiful. A great glimpse of the Gran Trianion.

Halcyon said...

Beautiful composition. I love the arches and how the wallpaper doesn't really match the floor! I think Louis needed a better interior decorator. :)

You could have so many chess games taking place there at the same time.

Classique mais beau

JM said...

I don't know which one I most like, the colonnade or the tiled floor, so I'll take both! :-)

the light is wonderful in this and such beauty in the details.

Besides your flower photos (and many others), I think the palace photos are among my faves, since I've never been there. This is wonderful. However, I have to report that B SQUARED just scared me.

EG Wow said...

Very nice shot, Ciel! I like how the angle of the tiles is drawing my eyes towards the archways.

Rebecca said...

Blue! I love blue!

Sharon Van Lieu said...
