You may think I took this photo in the country where I was this weekend, but no... I took it in the middle of Paris. Well almost in the middle, that is at Les Buttes Chaumont park located on a hill in the 19th arrondissement. It was inaugurated in 1867 during a world exhibition (you can see old photos of the area here) and since then, it has always been very popular (about 3 million people go though it every year). Probably because it's one of the rare gardens where you're allowed to walk on the grass, have a picnic, lay in the sun, enjoy a nice Spring day... and sometimes enjoy a beautiful light.
