This image was taken during one of my photography dawn raids across Paris!
Sometimes when you go dawn shooting it can be a rewarding experience and well worth the early start and other times it can be a huge disappointment when the golden light fails to materialise.
I felt I was rewarded that morning with a golden sunrise. I happened to be at Louvre when the sunrise started and I knew the nice light would only last for a short while, so I decided to frame the sunrise through the Arc De Triomphe du Carrousel.
As it turned out by the time I walked to the nearby River Seine the best of the sunrise had all but disappeared. Oh well.
