Weekend Reflections: ce satané coucher de soleil

I can't help showing it again. Here's that mid-January sunset, this time the equestrian statue of king Louis the 14th reflected in a window of his stables for James' Weekend Reflections.
-----------------------
Peux pas m'empêcher d'en mettre une petite dernière, cette fois c'est Louis XIV reflété dans ses écuries pour les Reflets du Weekend de James.

Merci beaucoup! That is just plain stunning. Gorgeous colors! And the statue...it's regal!

Re: your question on Florida Fotos: That's an old photo...and yes, it was a weekday afternoon when we were there...actually there were a lot more people than it appears in the photo!

Absolutely one of your best reflections ever.

Jack said...

Very nice all around. A statue, a brilliant sky and a purple window. Things are very colorful in Versailles.

Have a good weekend.

c'est pas pour rien que l'on surnommait "le roi soleil"..le soleil qui se couche sur lui est magnifique et j'adore ce cadrage et l'angle choisie. Bon Weekend

Dina said...

Ahh, a shot too good to be true.

On a la même à Montpellier (au Peyrou). Ils devaient les faire en série.

Diane said...

The sunset looks great in the reflection of the window.

Cergie said...

"Satané" tu veux dire luciférien ? On a la même chose parfois mais sans la statue et le matin sur la fenêtre des voisins tournée vers l'est...

This is ridiculously gorgeous. The colors and reflection are amazing. How does 'ce satane' translate in english? I'm not familiar with it.

It sure looks ,like your king is now inside and resting.

tapirgal said...

Just when I thought that sunset couldn't get any better. Maybe not better, but right up there with the other view.

James said...

If I had a Weekend Reflections best reflection of the week contest you would be the winner this week! Hmm maybe I should try that. :)

This is outstanding!
