Springtime in Paris

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by allen mcavoy

I took this photo of the Eiffel Tower in early spring this year. It was taken from atop the Arc de Triomphe, which is located one end of the Champs Elysees. I climbed the internal spiral staircase that seemed to go on forever. I knew immediately as I onto the top of the Arc de Triomphe and saw the Eiffel Tower in the distance that the climb was worth it. The spring day was hazy and moody, with little to no clouds. It could have been raining or snowing, the Eiffel Tower would still mesmerize.

Location: Paris, France
