This shot was taken from the roof of Montparnasse Tower in central Paris. The view from the top is amazing – you are permitted a bird’s eye view of central Paris and the Eiffel Tower – but capturing it with my camera was not very easy on my visit. There were lots of visitors jostling to get the front of the viewing area, so I decided to wait for a while. It then started to rain, which made getting a clear shot through the glass barriers very difficult (although it did mean many visitors left!). Eventually I decided to try something different and ended up taking this shot, which I was really pleased with.
