Beautiful. There were some lovely tethered boats captured in the Tour De France final last night.

Row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
life is but a Parisian dream!

Yummy and dreamy: colors, reflections and the promise of a romantic row on this serene lake.

Harriet said...

The color of these boats set against the dark color of the lake is perfect. Your composition is A+.

I knew you all would love this photograph. Wonderful day in paris. Peter and I had been to the Musée Marmottan Monet to see the Yann Arthus- Bertrand exhibit of his fabulous Paris From Above photos. I asked where the boats were taken from. Peter said the Bois de Bologne and we were able to walk from there. Another Paris moment pour moi.

"Maman les p'tits bateaux qui vont sur l'eau ont-ils des jambes ?... mais oui petit nigaud, s'ils n'en avaient pas ils n'avanceraient pas..."
Très belles photos qui font agréablement rêver...
Gros bisous.

Lovely image!

Excellent composition!
I think we would call them 'barques' rather than 'chaloupes' which are used for tenders/life boats on big liners.

We went for a "sail" on on of those little rowing boats a few years back my GF was petrified the whole time we would capsize sooo funny! but we had a pic nic and bottle of wine which helped calm her nerves if only a little. A great day indeed. Great photo thanks
