Nuit des musées 2012 : la galerie des glaces kaléidoscope

So here we are back at the palace. This is (two thirds of) the famous hall of mirrors which was lit up like a kaleidoscope of planets during the European night of museums! More to come, I hope you aren't bored to death yet!

Nous voilà de retour au château. Voici (les deux tiers de) la fameuse galerie des glaces, illuminée telle un kaléidoscope d'astres pendant la nuit des musées. Il y a encore des photos à venir, j'espère que vous n'en avez pas trop marre !

Love the warmth of the light you captured -- gorgeous -- it's like a set from a movie, feels full of drama!

I remember walking into this Hall of Mirrors and how stunning it was; truly breath-taking! The only problem was the place was jammed with tourists. Someday I'd like to go back (perhaps on a day like when you were there) and be able to spend more time to drink in all the beauty!
