You don´t need to say anything. Words would ruin the atmosphere...

Superbe. L'Opéra et un coucher de soleil: Deux cadeaux! Merci, Virginia. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Joe said...

Magnifique. A great image of your city V.

Shell Sherree said...

You photograph, therefore you do not need to say, dear V... {though I always love hearing what you have to say!}

Eyeliquor said...

Excellent!

Peter Olson said...

As you say nothing... I say nothing. Not needed! :-)

Janey and Co. said...

Can't think of anything you need to say...

Except maybe where you were? Hanging onto to the radio tower above Galeries Lafayette?

Melinda Larson-Horne said...

Breathtaking!

Natalie said...

Beautiful sunset Virginia, sans mots...
Where did you climb?
I'm always wondering what is that huge ugly building (left of TE) inevitably sneaking into every shot with Tour Eiffel? If Parisians managed to demolish quite a few Guimard's houses and even metro entrances, couldn't they take of this monster out of the view?

Virginia said...

Nathalie, You are so right. It looks like a huge Holiday Inn in the distance there! :)

For all you who ask, I was rooftop at Galeries Lafayette! The perfect spot to watch the sun set in the winter months.

Lowell said...

You don't have to say a thing. My little heart is going pitty-pat!

M said...

Aaaaaaahhhhhhh!

Harriet said...

Once again, you've outdone yourself! Beautiful!

Jilly said...

Oh that sky and the perfection of the rays against the building. As for the music - heaven!

Words are not needed!

...Absolutely nothing. If a picture is worth a thousand words this photo would be it! :)

Alexa said...

I'll have to go along with the consensus here, V—what a gorgeous shot!

Rob and Mandy said...

Virgina, thousand excuses
I do not know what happened
I am writing from an iphone and something definitely went so wrong
vraiment desolee

Virginia said...

Merci to you all for your kind comments and not a single one of you mentioned that you had never known me not to have something to say! :)
Bises,
V

Sketchbook Wandering said...

It is an incredible perspective of Paris that you found, and shared through your talent. Le ciel, in both senses of the word, n'est-ce pas?
PS I left you a response at my blog, thank you so much for stopping over. I'm thinking about your idea....!!! Merci...

Starman said...

I knew from the photo that you were at Galeries Lafayette! I've taken similar pictures from there.

AL said...

I feel as if I have just been transported back to the 50's or the 60's with the lovely tones that you have in this picture. Certainly a romantic and very special feeling to this V.

Dawne Boynton Polis said...

Virginia, you just said a Thousand Beautiful Words...
Thank you for your visit, belle amie!

martinealison said...

Un moment paisible qui pourrait être celui de la méditation...
Quelle belle prise.

Gros bisous.

Petrea Burchard said...

Magnificent.

Cheri said...

Unbelievably beautiful!!!

Jeanie said...

Was that from the roof of Gallerie Lafayette? You hit the perfect miment for lighting. I must remember that in the future -- we hit it midday on gray-sky day.
