La lune au-dessus du péristyle

Moon Grand Trianon Versailles
The moon over the colonnade of Grand Trianon castle in the palace grounds on 1 November.

C'était le 1er novembre au Grand Trianon.
And below, above one of the palace grounds avenues (avenue de Trianon)...

Reminds me of a cartoon I saw last week where one of the characters was complaining about how creepy the man on the moon was and how he always appeared to be staring at him. :-)

Lovely to see the moon from your point of view.

I love seeing the same moon that I see from here shining down on such an elegant location.

Nice, we just had a 'Beaver Moon' (a term I had never heard). The castle offers some unusual curves and angles.

I like what Sharon said and I often think that my special people are seeing the same moon that I am even when they are far away. Love these pics. Ciel!
