My wife and I have never been to Paris, but hope to rectify that oversight sometime in the future. As you have said, I have seen quite a few pictures of the Eiffel Tower, however this is the first - with it disappearing into the fog, and the contrast between the greyness of the tower and the color in the foreground is wonderful, along with the geometry of the landscaping.

Thanks interesting_observer! Do visit Paris if you have the chance. It's such a beautiful place!

Wonderfulimage. It's almost monotone in color. That tree line is impressive against the gray sky. Great geometry too with everything nice, level and straight, not to mention well composed. I think some of that clay is still stuck in my shoes. It's everywhere!

I love the way it seems as if you purposly dialed down the fog as you came closed to the ground. It looks beautiful that way though i'm sure it could do you good to see the tip of the Eiffel tower as well
