Le bosquet de la colonnade.


This was the alien light in the colonnade grove (built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart from 1685) in the palace gardens during the musical night fountains show. I have NO clue how they do it but it was brilliant! The sculpture in the centre was executed by François Girardon and represents the abduction of Proserpina by Pluto.

Ca c'était une lumière extra-terrestre dans le bosquet de la colonnade (construit par Jules Hardouin-Mansart à partir de 1685) pendant les Grandes Eaux Nocturnes au château. Je n'ai aucune idée de comment c'est fait mais c'était top ! La sculpture au centre a été exécutée par François Girardon et représente l'enlèvement de Proserpine par Pluton.

ca fait penser , en argentique, a l'utilisation de pellicules périmées, cela donne des effets comme ca. Superbe effet

That is so cool, I'd love to know how they do it! That statue brings back memories of reading Greek myths in childhood:)

I can't imagine how they get this kind of light. But, it is pretty remarkable. It must have been fun to see in person.

Looks like spectral plasma, a la Ghostbusters.

I can't even imagine how they handled the light, but I'm so glad they did. Awesome effect. Add some music and this must have been an amazing experience.

I think the French have some of the best lighting techniques, and this just proves that point oui !

Du plus bel effet! Renforcé par la musique très certainement.

Spectacular and a bit scary: I tend to rely on chemistry and physics for explanations, but this is really fascinating in a supernatural way!
