Starry Blue Eiffel Tower ~ France

The Eiffel Tower lit in blue with stars representing the CEE in Paris, France.


In 2008, the Eiffel Tower was lit in blue every evening while France was presiding the E.U. It resembled the  European Union flag with the 12 yellow stars.

Some facts about the Tower you maybe didn’t know:


Quick Tips:

Learn how to see the light, it will help you craft your photos. The best lighting is from the side which gives a sens of depth to your subject. Avoid the light from above especially when taking portraits, it creates ugly shadows on your subject’s face.


3 Random Things I love:

Sleeping in clean bed sheets

A handwritten mail

The cold side of a pillow

    Hi Daniel! Loved this blue tower! I also liked the tip, its quite annoying to take pictures during the day when its too sunny… So the copyright restrictions mean that you can’t take a picture of the tower at night? How much ‘panorama’ is required to escape this (silly) law? :P

      Thanks a lot, glad yo like :)
      Yes according to the French court ruling, it’s not allowed to take a photo at night with the lighting. Obviously, I don’t know how they intend to apply that law anyway as hundreds of tourists take photos every time of day. According to them, even my photo is not allowed!
      How much of a panorama? I don’t really know. I guess it just means that it has to include some other scenes than the tour Eiffel maybe? Silly I know.
