Paris in Winter

I found myself stuck one night with a friend on the
covered terrasse of the Café de Flore (poor me, I know),
when an unexpected snowstorm came up and we
were hardly dressed for this kind of weather.  Although
showers are frequent in Paris, snow is rare. There may be
a dusting, but the highest one-day snowfall ever
recorded was only a bit over a foot—and that was on
March 2, 1946 (another good day for a brandy at the Flore). 


  1. Well, I love snow and I love Paris so this is my kind of photo. The first time I went to Paris I was happily surprised by snow. It was a real treat because at the time I'd only seen it snow a few times in my whole life. Beautiful shot!

  2. This is beautifully stunning with the golden colors!
