Paris at Night is beautiful

Unfortunately they turn all of the lights off on the monuments and bridges at Midnight. Considering it doesn’t get dark until 10:30pm it doesn’t give one much of a chance to get a lot of shots of Paris in one night. As we rushed around to everything that was close to us I realized the next time we are in Paris at night I have to dedicate more than one night to this elegant city to do it justice. Below are some photo’s that I made of Notre Dame, The Latin Quarter, The Pont Neuf and the Eiffel Tower.

I think it will inspire everyone to go out and see Paris at night.

      Thanks Andy. We didn’t quite cover all the ground, but we tried our best. so many places that we missed. Like the view point from the Arc Du Triomph. The metro closes awfully early as well, so it is difficult to stay out for too long.

    Dave! OUTSTANDING!!!! I have fallen IN LOVE with my city all over again.
    Yes, you both will return again and when you do you will enjoy the timeless
    unchanging beauty of Paris, that is forever.

      Thanks MaryLouise, we made a point of going to Marie Antoinettes Prison. We only got a couple of shots off before they turned out the lights. But we managed (or should I say Dave managed) to get a few off in time.

      Thanks Gray. I can’t wait for you to see it in person as well. Paris is a place that has to be seen.

    My last time in France we spent 3 weeks exploring along the southern coast and some of the interior, but only 3 days in Paris – we crammed so much sightseeing into those 3 short days that I must admit I was too tired to take much notice of how beautiful Paris is at night – THANK YOU for these stunning photos to remind me that I really must get back and spend more time there!

      I understand completely Trisha. It is so difficult to stay up later and really enjoy Paris at night. We are looking forward to going back one day and making it to the Champs Elyse at night. Our first three days there we couldn’t stay up past 10 and then we only had 2 nights when we got back. One night it rained heavily, so we were forced to take all our shots in one evening. Would have loved more!

      Thanks Mark! We couldn’t believe our luck when we actually managed to get a picture with out people in it at Notre Dame. Even late into the night, people are everywhere in Paris. Dave loves taking night shots. We wish that he took more in Paris, but it gets dark so late and when we first arrived we couldn’t stay awake past 10:00!

      Hi Emily. That would have been cool to see the Eiffel Tower blue. For 5 minutes at midnight they changed the lighting to sparkling silver, but we didn’t have time to set the camera up and take a great shot. Too bad.

      Thanks for letting us know about the phostos Cynthia! I have no idea what happened to the Paris photos, but we are on it!

    Dave,
    These are stunning photographs-I haven’t been to Paris in almost 10 years, but your photos are a reminder to how much I loved the city!

    Do you have any around the Moulin Rouge? Would love to see how you captured that icon!

      We didn’t really take any of the Moulin Rouge at night. We just grabbed some daytime photos of it. But we’ll have to go back to take some, that strip would be amazing to photograph.
