Winter Views of Paris
Winter in Paris
Winter in Paris is quite dreary, it rains a lot and it’s frigid… the high energy the summer brings is far away. But at least there’s not much snow that comes around. This city experiences 15 snow days a year on average.
10 years ago six inches of snow fell, one of the highest snowfalls over the last 10 years. In 2018, there was another recorded 7 inches of snowfall, which shocked the city.
It’s rare that Paris is covered in snow. Yet, this year we did get our fair share of the white stuff. Here’s a view of the Luxembourg Gardens on a Sunday in 2013.
Those two chairs are looking like they have been ornamented with two cushions of snow. Such a shame someone couldn’t help mess up the one on the right. The ultra crisp 24-85 mm Nikon zoom lens and a speed of 1/100 (Full Exif details here) made it possible to capture the falling snowflakes.
This is, undoubtedly, a snow lion. Hence the following song (Babilonia and Feist)
A snow-covered statue is surveying the frozen pond where, on normal occasions, kids are sailing toy boats. The last recorded heavy snowfall was in 1987.
The Vacancy of Winter
Almost 6 inches of snow on that day… No one is going out for dinner in this weather… or a cigarette for that matter.
No comment… just not typical of winter in Paris…
Who would like to sit on that bench? Nobody is out and about in these conditions- the streets are empty and the cars are stuck in place. I think Paris looks quite beautiful in the snow, though I rather prefer snow to rain any day of the year.
And who ride this bike for that matter…? I question the convenience of these bikes in the snow… maybe that’s why it’s perfect
