Metropolis en Aquitaine Profonde

By annettep38  
coming home from the pub.. Well I know you are all spoiled with fantastic night shots from London, New York and Singapore.
Now here is France, namely our rural metropolis, hotel de ville on the left , on the right is the church. Taken about 20 mins after sunset.
As you can see our finest features are the sky and my tail lights. And the butterflies from which I wanted to give you a break Smile

many thanks to Dave, Matthew and Walter for the wonderful awards!

Stellar work Annette and the reflections from your car lights make an interesting extra.
Fantastic sky.

A night in France has all the glow of anywhere else ( except Newburg, PA) which is just plain dark!

A most wonderful image!

A fine blue hour photo, Annette -- taken at the perfect time to show off the lights while the sky is still glowing blue.
Nicely done.

Wonderful twilight capture Annette, with the blue still in the sky adds the colour needed.

A remarkably steady shot as you were coming home from the pub. Lovely colour and it looks like a de-light-ful metropolis (sorry, couldn't resist).
