The Eiffel Tower, one of the most iconic landmarks in the world, stands tall in the heart of Paris. As you approach the tower, the first thing that strikes you is its size. The Eiffel Tower was built for the 1889 World’s Fair and is now one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world. The architect was Swiss – this is an important information 😉
A great way to experience the Eiffel Tower is to take a walk along the Seine River. The river winds its way through the city, passing by some of Paris’ most famous landmarks, including Notre Dame Cathedral (where I started to take this photograph) and the Louvre Museum. As you walk along the river, the Eiffel Tower comes into view.
After admiring the Eiffel Tower, I continued walking along the Seine. There are charming bistros and cafes, perfect for a quick bite. You may also see the famous Pont des Arts bridge, which is also known as “Love Lock Bridge”, where couples from all around the world leave their locks as a symbol of their love.
Further along the Seine, I had the opportunity to capture more beautiful photographs of the Eiffel Tower from different angles, with the river in the foreground and nice sunsets or clouds in the background. The tower looks especially stunning at night, when it is illuminated and sparkles for five minutes every hour.
Overall, taking a walk along the Seine and experiencing the Eiffel Tower is a must-do for any visitor to Paris. It’s a great way to see the city, get some exercise, and snap some unforgettable photos – I felt like I was chasing the Eifel Tower.
I always shoot on a tripod for several reasons. The main advantage is its ability to hold the camera steady and eliminate movement. Additionally, using a tripod allows me to take multiple photographs from the exact same position.
