La Défense

The business district of Paris, taken from top of the Arc de Triomphe. The location is a few kilometers away from where I took the photo. So I took the opportunity to use a telephoto lens and captured the sunset just behind the La Défense towers. The colours were amazing! Most famous and tallest building of La Défense such as Tour First, Tour Total and Société Générale Twin Towers can be seen from the photo.

Bordeaux Palais de la Bourse

Place de la Bourse is part of the Port of the Moon, Bordeaux, which has been listed by UNESCO as World Heritage since 2007. The royal square is a fine example of the outstanding urban ensemble that was built in the 18th century, during the reign of King Louis XV. The spectacular setting of Place de la Bourse on the edge of the Garonne River shows a monumental succession of identical buildings that form a continuous and balanced building curtain.
