Tour Illuminée!

The Tour Eiffel lit at night, from the Place du Trocadéro. This is an eight seconds exposure. I think it's best to take night pictures before the sky is totally dark, so the background isn't just pitch black.

 

Notice the two domes of Les Invalides (closest) and the Panthéon to the left.

 

This is my last picture of Paris, for now at least. I took it on my last night in Paris. I left the next day in TGV for Avignon, in southwest of France. Of course I might add a few more pictures later.

 

Photo cropped square.
