Interesting Photo the Day: Amazing Perspective & Perfect Timing

Sometimes perspective can make all the difference, especially when photographing well-known structures like the Eiffel Tower, or in this case, the Arc de Triomphe. There’s no shortage of typical, straight-on shots of world landmarks, but this photo combines several elements—including a unique perspective—for a striking composition.

Taken on France’s National Day (La Fête Nationale, sometimes referred to as Bastille Day) this photo by Anthony Gelot of A.G. Photographe has a very patriotic feel, with the French flag waving in the sunlight and the vapor trails from the aviation demonstration overhead streaming the national colors in perfect formation.

The photo was captured with a Nikon D800.

    Definitely deserves printed extra-large and hung on the wall (or maybe a ceiling?)! Someone put themselves in place for a great shot to begin with, and then saw the possibility when those planes were in their run. Chance favors the prepared mind, as the old saying goes. AMAZING!
