Le bosquet des bains d'Apollon

This is Apollo's bath grove in the palace gardens during the musical fountains night show. Again, these photos were taken in August and I apologize for showing them so late... The three sculptures, by François Giraudon and Thomas Regnaudin, make this one of the finest groves of the gardens!

The November 1 theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Heights." Ouch...

Ces photos ont été prises pendant les Grandes Eaux Nocturnes en août et je vous prie de bien vouloir excuser le retard avec lequel je les poste. Les trois sculptures, œuvres de François Giraudon et Thomas Regnaudin en font l'un des plus beaux bosquets des jardins du château.

Le thème du 1er novembre pour les blogueurs City Daily Photo est "heights" (hauteurs, sommets...). Gloups...

Quite majestic.

This is unexpected. The royals seemed to love elaborate and stylish architecture. This cavelike spot is different from the others.

But, it would be a fine spot for a zebra.

Like walking into a fairy tale grotto! (In fact, this could be a backdrop for some elaborate ballet:) So beautiful!

Interesting but not something I would like in my garden.

How creative to blend the sculptures into that magnificent natural stone with the waterfalls.

Not a fan of heights?

This is magnificent. I don't remember seeing this! Darn! Great shots, too. It's no wonder that the palace is so popular with people all over the world!

Intriguing photos and I don't mind at all that you are showing them "late."

I've heard about the theme day being heights... so many possibilities from around the world for that.
