Au loin, Notre-Dame

Versailles city seen from Petit Trianon
Looking towards the city and the dome of Notre-Dame de Versailles church ('Our Lady') from Marie-Antoinette's estate at Petit Trianon in the palace gardens and two views of the back of the same church from slightly closer! VDP liked the light! You had seen a slightly similar shot in 2009 here!

Un regard vers la ville et le dôme de Notre-Dame depuis le Petit Trianon et deux vues de l'église d'un peu plus près ! VDP aimait bien la lumière ! Vous aviez vu une image un peu similaire ici en 2009 !

Très belle vue de Notre-Dame à partir de ce fouillis de verdure qui fait respirer. En effet la lumière ajoute un joli plus.

Yes, such soft winter light! Striking domes!

A touch of Spring in the air perhaps, the light is definitely softening.

Looks like the skies are still gray. Hope they turn blue soon!

Great shots. You have done well capturing spring light, especially in your first photo.

Wonderful church and I love the close up image!
Hope your Spring is better than mine in Lux. It's soooo cold today here!
Oh girl, I'm tired of this weather!

Your early spring look is mighty fine. The lightly budding trees and bushes framing the stone beyond.
