Something Bright and simple for a change! Is there anyone who's been to Paris and hasn't taken this shot? 😊 I doubt it, but here's another - My simple snapshot of the Eiffel Tower and surrounding grounds...

Autumn Colored Leaf by the Pond - Simple shot of a backlit leaf with water droplet bokeh in the background. Big image but a tiny leaf, maybe an inch at most. Portrait Orientation - John Brody Photography / JohnBrody.com

Portrait of Light Beams from the Eiffel Tower over Pont des Arts Paris --- More Info FYI - All visitors to Paris take photos of the nightly light show from the Eiffel Tower; I have hundreds :)   For some reason this particular image stood out from the rest of my shots. It may be the location, where it's seen over the Pont des Arts Bridge and the d'Orsay Museum ( just an FYI, the D'Orsay is the best location other than Amsterdam to see the works of Vincent van Gogh), or simply the blaze of light with an unusually strong glow due to the soft fog of the evening. Whatever the reason, I liked it, so I thought I would share - Portrait Version ---  JohnBrody.com / John Brody Photography

Sunset Over Cemetery in Dijon France - I shot this unusual lighting as the sun was setting behind me, getting dark except for a beam of light on the trees. This hilltop path is to the cemetery in Dijon, France, the home of Gustav Eiffel, of Eiffel Tower fame, and, yes, Dijon mustard.  I spent a week here and the town and surrounding countryside were quite beautiful. (updated image) - John Brody Photography

Gothic Backstreet in Dijon France  -  I could feel the centuries passing by  as I walked further down this back alley. Some of the buildings are hundreds of years old, a few dated as old as 1,000 years...   John Brody / John Brody Photography

Tulip Trail in Holland - A rainy day at Keukenhof Gardens near Amsterdam. The rain would stop for a few minutes now and then and I'd shoot the rain soaked flower rows and beautiful tree canopy. Miles of tulip trails, lakes and forest  - JohnBrody.com / John Brody Photography

Small Village in Belgium or Germany between the Spa Francorchamps and Nurburgring Formula One race tracks. I crossed the border so many times that day it was impossible to know what country I was in... A good day of exploration and race track adrenaline :)   - JohnBrody.com / John Brody Photography

Statue and Reflections at the Paris Opera House - While composing this shot of the Opera House and this statue, an architectural light show of red, blue and white strobes lit up in the windows' reflection. It's a busy image, with a lot going on, but it just highlights the vibrancy and mood of of this part of Paris. This scene had a feeling that attracted a crowd of close to a thousand people - JohnBrody.com / John Brody Photography

Mystical Lighting and Cloud Cover Over Church - This scene seems like a composite, but it's not... The church was completely covered with clouds except for the small fingers of cloud breaks and light that pointed downward. I found it quite fascinating... John Brody Photography

Otter Posing during a  rare moment standing still. I waited for ages while he swam and dove and chased his friends, Finally he climbed a stunt and posed perfectly in front of some bokeh creating sunlit leaves. All in all I think it was worth it :)   -   John Brody Photography
