Paris clad in pink: Stormy sky over Paris - Sunrays over Montmartre and the Sacré-Coeur Basilica

After a long afternoon exploring Paris, I had been waiting for hours on a roof under dark gray clouds. It was an amazing feeling to witness a sudden burst of sunrays. Seeing sunlit Montmartre and the swift change of colors from gray to soft blue and intense pink made this fleeting moment almost magical.

This is a horizontal aerial panoramic view of Paris showing multiple neighborhoods on the left and right banks including famous monuments:

Right Bank: Les Tuileries (Tuilerie Garden, La Grande Roue de Paris (Paris Big Wheel), Place de la Concorde), Le Louvre (museum), Les Halles, the Marais, Centre Georges Pompidou (Beaubourg), Montmartre (Sacré Coeur Basilica)

Left bank: Saint Germain (Saint Germain des Prés Church, Orsay Museum, Saint Sulpice Church), Luxembourg (Luxembourg Palace and Gardens), Ile de la Cité (Conciergerie, Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral)
