Des trombes d'eau


These pictures were taken at the intersection of Avenue de Saint-Cloud and Avenue de l'Europe on 9 November during a downpour. I believe that the car on the far right in the second picture is a Rolls-Royce!

Ces photos ont été prises pendant une énorme averse le 9 novembre au carrefour de l'avenue de Saint-Cloud et de l'avenue de l'Europe. J'ai l'impression que la voiture tout à droite sur la seconde photo est une Rolls !

And they all get wet regardless of what company produced them, don't they!! Not a good evening to be strolling the streets!! Hopefully, you've had a drier weekend than that evening! Have a great week, Ciel!!

Always a safe road ahead. Das erste Bild ganz toll. Eine gute neue Woche dir.

Randy said...

These are awesome. We could do with some rain.

Good observation. The wet streets make the lights become colored lightening bolts. Rolls drivers deserve whatever fate comes to them.

Everything is luminous in the rain. Very nice, Ciel.

The lights and reflections are beautiful! :)

I love the glow of carlights in these beautiful rain photos - it is hard to take great rainy day pix but yours are lovely! (It really looks like a Rolls:)

Also, I love the new look!

The rain looks prettier in the photo than it probably did in person. I've read about a lot of flooding in Italy and Spain. Hope your neck of the woods is not as affected.

Just like Wales eh? At least we had a great day yesterday, clear skies, sun and an autumn chill in the air. A wonderful day on the bike.

J'adore les photos sous la pluie, l'atmosphere, les reflets des lumières ..
T'as tout réaménagé?!C'est bien, les photos sont plus grandes comme ça.

Imagine that, it's raining in Versailles - you might turn into a swamp one day!

I hate bad weather but I like these 'wet shots'!

Il vaut mieux être en voiture qu'à pieds et en bottes qu'en hauts talons!

A Rolls under the rain in Versailles, you have a very good eye...

I hate driving in this kind of weather...can't see well and everybody's slip-sliding away.

Years ago we moved from Ft. Lauderdale to Boca Raton...there are a great many Rolls Royces in that town. There are a great many other luxury cars, too! I'd be afraid to drive a Rolls around here!

The reflections are stunning!

Ciel I know you get sick of the rain, but these images are so good, they make me wish for rain right now.
