Les voilà !


At the start of the month, I showed you the beginning of my love story with the daffs on Avenue de Paris. This was the scene last Sunday! See 2010 here or here and 2009 here. There's a street reflected on Artsy Versailles today.

--------------------------------

Au début du mois, je vous parlais du début de mon histoire d'amour avec les narcisses de l'Avenue de Paris. Les voici dimanche dernier. 2010 c'était ici ou et 2009 ici. Il y a une rue reflétée sur Artsy Versailles aujourd'hui.

What a wonderful perspective, Ciel. You invite us to smell those daffs from this angle.

Beautiful shots, Ciel. I love the light in the top shot.

Daffodils are such a welcoem to Spring site! I ahve captured some also and now that I ahve finished my snow photos for this time, I will be showing a few of those also!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Did you play a bit with that top photo? The light is soooo spectacular! Both are super shots.

I hope you didn't hurt yourself getting into position to take the second photo!

You're very funny, too. I tried your French version of the sea shoes thing and tripped over my own tongue and fell down laughing!

Super cadre! Quelle fraicheur!

It looks so pleasant there and here we are, back into winter. The cherry trees in our botanical garden started to bloom a couple of days ago when the temperature was in the mid-20s. I plan to shoot them on Saturday, when there is a chance of snow.

These photos are absolutely lovely, as are the flowers. Spring has come!

Jack said...

Here they are, Ciel! The bulbs I have been waiting for. I see that you have offered one scene and one close-up. That straddles the two major schools, doesn't it? (The pics are very pretty, especially the top scene.)

J. Evan Kreider said...

In the first photo, the greens and yellows make the orange-brown trees all the more beautiful.

Magpie said...

You framed that top picture perfectly. I love the curve of the walkway and the treeline. Beautiful.

Tous les ans nous tâchons d'aller dans les Vosges au moment de Pâques rapport notre love story avec les jonquilles mais c'est vrai que même en ville elles se plaisent ou plutôt les narcisses en massifs magnifiques qui croisent et se multiplient même dans les talus du périph parisien. Faut reconnaitre que c'est superbe.

Dave said...

Great shots Ceil, enjoy your weekend.

Malyss said...

Ah, là , ça sent VRAIMENT le printemps!

Miss_Yves said...

C'est donc là que se trouvaient les jonquilles que j'ai cherchées en vain, à Versailles la semaine dernière!
Belle perspective!

These warm me up, which is good, because it's 20F (-7C) outside at the moment and I need some warmth. Spring my a$$!! The perspective in the second shot is great. I was kneeling in a layer of hail to capture something similar yesterday morning.

@ Jacob: nope. Almost SOOC, I merely added a tiny bit of contrast.

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

You and Eric have mastered this angle. Lovely! The Montreuil house should have a movie made there.

SRQ said...

Beautiful captures! In the top shot, it looks like everyone is out enjoying the nice weather and the lovely daffodils. Btw, after checking out 2010 and 2009, these are my favorites.
