Couldn't believe my eyes when I walked out of the dimly lit beauty of Notre Dame after going to listen to the soprano singing vespers, and into the evening with its soft rain showers. What a wonderful surprise to be greeted by this illuminated sky full of rich color! The shining pavement reflecting a glorious sunset shone against the dark buildings, and people with their umbrellas could be seen in silhouette, facing the direction of the setting sun.
Lorsque je sortais - apres vepres - des tenebres de Notre Dame, je me suis trouvee devant ce tableau presque invraisembable. Il avait plu, et le coucher du soleil rayonnait une lumiere rosatre et doree parmi les nuages qui dansaient. Quelle belle surprise inattendue!
