Images of France - a few of many, many images of Paris, Loire Valley, Nice, and Alsace.

The most spectacular fountain at France's most spectacular attraction - The Basin of Apollo at Versailles, near Paris. Strong backlighting makes this image.

We found this brightly colored side street while walking through the town of Saverne, in the Alsace region of France. Saverne is not far from Strasbourg.











The tiny walled city of Eze, near Nice features several shops and resturants. I spotted these bright colors and contrasting textures along of the narrow streets.

One of the several canals running through Strasbourg, in Alsace. The building on the right is the old customs building and port authority, and dates to 1358. Note the graffity on the small boat.

France, Belgium, Holland and other countries are criss-crossed by canals. Once used for commerce, they the canals now provide a facinating and relaxing way to see Europe. This was our "sister ship" on a canal south of Strasbourg.

I photographed this bird lover infront of Notre Dame in Paris. I wonder how often he gets his suit cleaned. I've since heard that there's now a law that makes it illegal to photograph people in Paris. Just love those French.







The little village of Lutzelbourg in Alsace was one of the prettiest we encountered. It's located about 20 miles west of Strasbourg. This was taken from the ruins of the Chateau du Lutzelbourg, which sits on a high bluff overlooking the town.




A sharp bend in the canal frames the beautiful town of Saverne, Alsace, France.

Mist rises at dawn from the Canal de Laterale de la Loire, or "Canal beside the Loire" river in central France.
