Weekend Reflections: le bassin de Neptune et la grille du dragon

Looking towards the city from Neptune Basin in the palace grounds, the exit gate being the dragon gate. More Weekend Reflections are this way. The declining sun makes for a big, black shadow on the building on the right!

Les Reflets du Weekend, c'est par ici. Le soleil déclinant provoque une grosse ombre noire sur l'immeuble à droite !

Yes, it looks like the antimatter machine has taken a chunk out of existence. Still, I wish I had this to look at.

Bonjour,
J'ai récemment découvert votre blog et cette photo du Bassin de Neptune me rappelle tendrement mon enfance lorsque Maman m'y emmenait jouer...
Bon weekend à vous

J'aime la façon dont l'image se dilue à la surface de l'eau, c'est tellement suggestif... Bel effet, vraiment.

Strange, I know I commented on this post. Maybe I started and then got distracted. In any case, I like the photo and I'm glad I came back to see it again. :-)
