Travel photo of the day
Palais de l'Ile
- PM91, CNN iReport producer
After attending a work conference in Germany with my family we decided to take a few days off and drive through France on our way back to south Italy.
I have 5 young daughters, so a critical part of any vacation planning is considering what our kids would think was fun. Part of our trip included visiting Strasbourg and Annecy. Annecy has a storybook feel with the a beautiful lake, historical buildings, and canals.
We arrived to Annecy around noon and walked around the lakefront, enjoyed the public parks, and even rented a paddle boat. But once I saw Palais de I'lle I knew I wanted to photograph it with the right combination of sunset+public lights on. As we were driving away the city lights came on, and I immediately stopped the car in order to capture this magical moment.
