TIPS TO PHOTOGRAPH PARIS AT SUNSET
Paris is a such an interesting place for every photographer….It is one of those places with which you can fall in love easily if you are searching for a romantic place and one easy to shoot at with your camera. Getting a beautiful view of the city at sunset is quite easy wherever you are, and the only thing you really need is a good sunny day….let’s have a look to some interesting places which you can consider….You could choose to visit one of the 2 lovely banks of the Seine river, to climb on top of the Notre Dame cathedral or watching the Eiffel tower from one of those dozens of bridges, and why not from the terrace of Arc de Triomphe
There is something special in Paris, everything seems made to look big, and to show the French grandeur….. The picture at the beginning of this article has been made from the terrace of Notre Dame cathedral where the famous Gargoyle statues lie….if you get there don’t forget to stay in queue at least 2 hours before….they close early and they even close the door in front of you just when it’s your turn…The atmosphere from this place is impressive….Gargoyles seem to protect Paris like guardians…..
When you finish and get down again, it could be a good idea to sit on the north bank of Seine in the Isle the St. Louis as you can see in the other picture…you can watch bateaou mouge boats going back and forth, the sun shining through the tress, and the bells of Notre Dame filling the air with such a smooth and sweet sound……
Another nice thing to do is sitting in a Paris cafe’, with all those typical seats facing the street, and looking at people walking around and catch a nice look…..and whatever you decide to do, the magic word in Paris is “sunset”, and i really hope that from these pictures you’ll get the reason
