Elles sont toujours envoutantes , ces chandelles.. petites lueurs vivantes dans l'obscurité feutrée des eglises.

Now you've got me wondering whether there is a country whose flag has blue, yellow and red stripes. Can't think of any but there has to be one somewhere.

That's a great shot. Regarding your question on what it smelled like on the mountain. Crisp and clean, the air was the cleanest I have ever inhaled.

Simple and pretty. The colors in this photo mirror the colors in your banner photo.

Si le jaune avait pu tirer sur le blanc, les couleurs etaient dans le bon ordre :-)

I especially like the blue ones.

I like the assortment of colors(très patriotique)and the nice lighting. This reminds me that I took some candle photos in Notre Dame De Paris. I forgot about them until now.
