That's an incredibly amazing place. I can't imagine they do all that trimming by hand, though! Maybe just touching up. What boring work. Unless, of course, you like to work outside in the heat and cold and trim bushes.

I meant to tell you that I thought this was just a superb photo - composed perfectly. You do have the "eye," as I've told you before and will probably tell you again!

Will you sell me a few photos for my blog, sir, prego? I don't mean to be rude but this is my patch, lol! ;-)) Great shot, it looks so familiar!

@ Jacob - You are always too good...
@ ciel - As I told you before, this is your fault. I never thought before to go to Versailles and in few months your blog changed my mind, not an easy task...

I also have not been to Versailles, but when I go back to France someday I'll have to visit because of Ciel's blog. It's funny you both posted the pointed trees about the same time. All of the photos are quite artistic.
