Weekend Reflections: le grand canal doré

A view down the palace's grand canal with several more of Giuseppe Penone's trees and Apollo's chariot fountain in the middle. The golden sun is reflected in the canal for Weekend Reflections. Oh and if you enlarge the first photo, you'll notice swans!

La vue du grand canal au château avec plusieurs autres arbres de Giuseppe Penone et le bassin du char d'Apollon au milieu. Le soleil doré se reflète dans le canal pour les Reflets du Weekend. Si vous cliquez sur la première photo, vous verrez des cygnes !

Voilà un moment de la journée auquel je n'ai jamais eu l'occasion de voir le Grand Canal... C'est superbe, ces reflets d'or... Louis XIV avait décidément un grand sens de l'esthétisme.

Penone, ce grand artiste minimaliste, invité par Versailles, c'est beau non ?
J'applaudis des deux mains.
