Autumnal Versailles

Denis Joye captured this scene of morning mist and shadows while cycling around the Grand Canal at the Palace of Versailles
, France.

Mist droplets have diffracted the Autumnal light to form a large and delicate corona (small drops). Trees cast their shadows, as always parallel but to our easily deceived brains radiating fan wise.
