November City Daily Photo Theme Day: Landmark

Château de Versailles from above
So... the landmark Theme is a bit easy in Versailles. You've seen the palace that millions visit every year -it is one of the if not the most visited place in the whole world-  time and time again on this blog over the past five and three quarter years... but only rarely from above! This very nice from above shot comes courtesy of VDP's friend Atelier Choco Turquoise! What you see here is a bit of Saint-Louis neighbourhood, the congress hall (the large round building, VDP had shown you the outside here) and of course, the huge palace with the royal chapel looming above it! To view all takes on the Theme in the City Daily Photo community, click here! Oh... and can you guess where this photo was taken from? Answer tomorrow! Update 2 November: here's where!

Premier du mois, jour de thème dans la communauté des blogueurs City Daily Photo. Fastoche pour VDP ce mois-ci, puisque le thème est "repère ou monument". Vous avez vu le château un nombre incalculable de fois sur ce blog depuis cinq ans trois-quarts... mais rarement en prenant de la hauteur ! La dernière fois, c'était ici. Cette belle photo a été prise par l'Atelier Choco Turquoise ! Ce que vous voyez, c'est un p'tit bout du quartier Saint-Louis avec la Cour des Senteurs (les arbres au milieu) devant le couvent des Récollets, le palais des congrès (le grand immeuble rond dont VDP vous montrait l'extérieur ici) et bien sûr, l'immense château surplombé par la chapelle royale ! Pour voir plein d'interprétations du monde entier de ce thème, c'est par ici ! Au fait, devinerez-vous d'où la photo a été prise ? La réponse ici demain ! Mise à jour 2 novembre : voici d'où !

Of course this is the landmark from Versailles. It is good having friends who take photographs, isn't it?

What a beautiful picture Ciel! The palace was truly one of the highlights of my vacation this past summer and a landmark I will certainly never forget.

So many buildings, not used to seeing that, I would get lost there.

This was also a good theme for Berlin - finally an easy one! I am curious to see where this shot was taken from.
