A spectacular vivid purple blanket sweeps over the city of Paris as a picturesque sunset hovers over the Eiffel Tower. The breathtaking sight, known as 'blue hour', is the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness.
The photographs were taken from the top of the Arc de Triomphe and the Montparnasse Tower - 210 metres above the ground. A blinding white light can be seen at the top of the 1,000ft Eiffel Tower which rotates 360 degrees for the whole city to see. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
