Beautiful Reflections on the Seine River

Some of the most famous monuments in Paris line the Seine River

I love running or walking along the Seine. Doesn’t matter what time of day, how fast or slow…it’s always beautiful. The heart of Paris is small enough that you can walk to many favorite spots, walk all the way from the Eiffel Tower to past Notre Dame without getting tired – but large enough to offer an amazing diversity of buildings, sites and monuments!

On my last run the Seine was so calm that I had fun taking pictures of the reflections of buildings in the river…It was so smooth that you could recognize the museum or landmark, even without seeing the original above.

Guess which monument this is?

I took tons of pictures past the Musee d’Orsay, Louvre, Academie Francaise, Musee de la Monaie, Ile de la Cite’ until a police boat came racing by leaving a huge wake in its trail that seemed to last forever.

  5. I love these shots! They bring back such sweet memories of walking along the Seine. It was especially magical one morning in the snow. Next time I’m in Paris I’ll take a look for beautiful reflections like these and have my camera ready. Thanks for the inspiration!
