  The gardens of Versailles
by sim1

The gardens at Versailles are huge; I could never have imagined anything like this. In the foreground you can see the 'Water Parterre'. From here there are some steps down and you can start your endless walk through the gardens. In the picture you can see the green stretch in the middle which is the ‘Royal Avenue’. On either side of the ‘Royal Avenue’ are hidden smaller gardens, which are wonderful to discover. Each of them has a surprising thing, like a beautiful fountain a sculpture or just a great garden design. After the ‘Royal Avenue’ far back in the distance is the fountain of Apollo. Behind that you can see the waters of the Grand Canal. The gardens of Versailles stretch as far as the eyes can see, it’s incredible.
