Paris 2011 - the Eiffel Tower

The evening we went to see the Eiffle Tower (Tour Eiffel) it was cold and slightly misty. I was wondering if any of the photos I took would turn out ok. As a matter of fact, because of the mist and the effect it had on my camera and photos, the pictures I took of the Eiffle Tower all turned out "dreamy" and beautiful! :D

Getting close.


Almost there!


It was so beautiful. We didn't take the cart to go up onto the Tower, but looking at it from down on the ground was amazing.

And every evening there's a "light show" where "the Eiffel Tower is adorned with its golden covering and sparkles for 5 minutes every hour on the hour, while its beacon shines over Paris." (from The Eiffle Tower official web site.)

A little video of the light show:
