It was important to me to make it to the top of the Arch by the time the sun set so I could experience that with my camera in hand. I must have spent at least an hour walking the rectangular perimeter of the observation deck as the day drew to a close, snapping hundreds of shots.
Here are three of my favorites. What do you think? Do you have a favorite below?
Paris from the Arch Photo #1. As the sun setting in the west casts a pink hue on the horizon, Paris’s most notable landmark stands out among the rest of the buildings.
Paris from the Arch Photo #2. About 90 degrees to the west, the colors of the sunset kick in as car lights come on, but buildings stay relatively dark.
Paris from the Arch Photo #3. Twelve wide city streets come together at a the biggest road rotary I’ve ever seen at L’Etoile, the site upon which L’Arc de Triomphe sits. Here’s a shot down one of “the Star’s rays” as night settles in.
