Tourists look out from a high viewing platform in Paris at night. Illuminated Eiffel Tower in the distance.

Tourists on the Tower

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.
