SKY WATCH FRIDAY # 14

"Le monosyllabe a une étrange capacité d'immensité: mer, nuit, jour, bien, mal, mort, oui, non, dieu." Victor Hugo

"Monosyllable gets a strange capacity of breadth : sea, night, day, good, evil, death, yes, no, god." Victor Hugo
The Sacré-Coeur of Montmartre, viewed from a window at the backstairs of our house.
I love this particular time of the evening, when sky get this deep blue color . So soothing !
The view for real, without zoom.






















Here, the Sacré-Coeur on the other side.













I invite you to follow the link that brings you to other skies.
Just visit Sky Watch Friday hosted by Sandy, Tom, Imac, and Klauss.

  2. Hi Catherine, What a beautiful view you have out your window! The cathedral is truly breathtaking. I visited Paris and the surrounding countryside in 1976. It is a beautiful country.

  15. That is a wonderful photo of Sacre Coeur. Thanks. Paris is a wonderful city but where I live on the osland of Crete is very different, but just as beautiful.

  22. Thank you for sharing your glorious view. What a magical place to live, rather than in the suburbs you have everything on your doorstep. Paris at it's best.

  25. Catherine,
    That view is spectacular. Wow. Thanks for bringing us up close with the first one. I like the romantic distance of the second one, too.

    And I love that deep blue.

  28. Bonjour Catherine! Voilà ma visite hebdomadaire… Et cette semaine il y a, comme d’habitude d’ailleurs, des photos magnifiques. Tu as une belle vue du Sacré Coeur!
    La toiture de la Cathédrale de Chartres impressione, surtout si on doit monter 300 marches... ;)) Mais la vue est superbe!
    J’attends toujours tes commentaires à Blogtrotter, maintenant de retour à Chania, Crète!
    Bon weekend!
