Photographer's Note

Versailles has been the host for many great moments in history. It was the home of the french king Louis XIV, the place where the leader of Germany once was chosen and even where WW1 ended! A lot has happened here through times and now it hosted me!

I had visited the castle and its enormous garden some days before with heavy rain showers and lightning and thunder. A great sight, but not exactly the perfect weather. This time I was actually there to see the light shows in the dark called "Les grandes eaux nocturnes". It was set up by the same people who lit the Eiffel Tower for the new millennium and it was wonderful. The gardens were lit with lamps, and there were spectacular fountains and fireworks too. The show started a bit before it had become dark, so when I arrived, what I could see was this. The sun was close to the horizon and the sky was perfect. It was such an amazing experience to be there right then!
