Avenue de Sceaux

Avenue de Sceaux Versailles
Looking down avenue de Sceaux from above Jardin des Francine. That's the palace right at the end!

I remember this street and how busy it was...at the time there were tour buses everywhere! Kinda like being at Disney World on July 4th!

Looks like there's an awful lot going on there. I know from your pictures that there are some beautiful quiet parts, they always look perfect to me..

Like Washington, D.C. on July 4th. :-)

RedPat said...

Wow - that is a lot of congestion, Ciel!

Jack said...

It is busy down there. Why don't you stay up where you are.

Kate said...

My goodness! Are all those tour buses?

Michelle said...

That is a lot of traffic!

Lois said...

I see it! Looks like the tourists are out in force.

Bob Crowe said...

I recognize it. We walked somewhere around here, maybe closer to the palace, didn't we?

Randy said...

Nice view with all the trees.

You guys have such pretty streets over there. That's a cool sculpture too

Something tells me that if i took the train from Paris this might be my first glimpse of the palace. I didn't expect that busy street.

A fantastic viewpoint!

That's a very sweeping perspective!

There's something very special about avenues such as this Ciel, it's the trees for sure but also the sweep leading down to something beautiful, I think the Palace might fit that criteria :)

VP said...

Love the trees, a bit less the traffic... Great perspective shot!

@ Kate: no they are public transport. The coaches park outside the palace.

@ Lois: these are locals...

@ Bob: yes we did, all the way down there but Olivier had parked somewhere up here!

Curse the traffic. Evermore!

Wayne said...

It's a lovely view and the trees lead your eye to the palace. Busy day, eh?

William Kendall said...

Quite a view, Ciel, and very busy, I see!

José Mendonça said...

Very nice perspective, Ciel.

Kay said...

What a contrast to some of those serene forest shots from a couple of days ago!

No twists and turns so I bet no one gets lost there. ;)
