Le temps des ombres

Bosquet de la colonnade Versailles
Winter is a time for long shadows... This is one of the entrances of the colonnade grove in the palace gardens. VDP had shown you Hardouin-Mansart's masterpiece here and here. Below is just a shot of some trees next to Apollo's chariot fountain.

L'hiver est propice aux ombres... Voici l'une des entrées du bosquet de la colonnade dans les jardins du château. VDP vous avait montré la splendeur d'Hardouin-Mansart, c'était ici et . Ci-dessous, juste les ombres des arbres près du bassin du char d'Apollon.

Both are beautiful shadow shots, Ciel. I can't decide which of the two appeals more to me!

Nice light and shadows.

Excellent. Someone once said I work best in the shadows - not sure what that meant! :)

I like these a lot. That 2nd shot looks similar to my post of a few days ago with the "tree lights." Great minds, you know....

I prefer the second image, although the copyright imprint spoils it.

C'est vrai c'est le moment de l'annee ou tout se decoupe a cause de la perte de verdure et en consequence on voit mieux certains details. Et surtout comme ici qui dit ombres dit soleil...

I do love that arched entrance, it's very grand and mysterious.
