Everything looks lovely. Even we got some more flurries today. Snow on the east coast may jeopardize our flight to NY tomorrow.

The Trianon Palace!!! The place where Marie Antoinette could be herself. I love this place I don't remember seeing the many times I walked Versailles

Jacob said...

So lovely. The snow creates its own kind of magic!

At some point I hope to hear all about your day!

We're in south Florida so may not be online much for another day or so.

I like the wintery lighting! Merry Christmas!

Woody said...

The name is very fitting, it certainly looks like a palace. Nice car exiting the gates!

Rumor has it we might get 20 to 30cm of snow tomorrow :-)

I hope your Christmas was very merry!

Everything is so fancy, the palace, the scroll of the trees, the car...and I like the lighting too.

I am pleased that you came and visited my blog so that I could come and see yours. My family and I were among those 7 million visitors to the palace at Versailles about 20 years ago. Very beautiful and I wish we had been able to spend much more time there - one of those quick tour things. Anyway, I look forward to visiting your blog often, and I hope to see you at mine.

Is that James Bond making a quick exit from the hotel?

Looks like a scene inside a snowglobe :-)

Very nice photograph. I really like the visual stimulus it provides me.

@ Andrew: this isn't the Trianon castle where Marie-Antoinette liked to stay, but the hotel located on the edge of the palace grounds. If you would like to see the Trianon castle, you might want to click either on the "Petit Trianon" or on the "Grand Trianon" labels at the bottom of the sidebar.

@ Leif: nope! A) it's a Porsche, wrong car and B) had it been James Bond, he would have been equipped to drive on snow and ice! :-)

Elegant and beautiful!

Jack said...

That is very classic and elegant, Ciel. As to Mark Twain, he lived in Hartford for 17 years, and later he lived in Redding, CT, from 1908 to his death in 1910. Redding is next door to Ridgefield, where you lived for a while!

You live in the most beautiful area. Wow. And what a fancy car exiting that place... :)
