Re: The Palace of Versailles
- Thanks a lot John,
No camera supports are allowed in the palace and with the amount of people and crowd philopod was not possible to use with exception in the Hall of Battles and the 1830 Room.
Because of that three of my panos got so bad (due hand shake blur and big parallax error) that I did not post them.
One in Salon Apollon, one in the room of Coronation of the Emperor and a second one in the Hall of Battles)
You have been lucky to live so close to there and could visit the beautiful palace often. My visit was during the winter so the gardens were not at their best, therefore no panos from there.

I lived only a couple of blocks from the Porte Saint-Antione garden entrance near the Petite Trianon and Le Hameau while I was studying in France. Being so close, I got to visit the gardens and palace frequently. It sure looks a lot more crowded now than it was in the late 1970s! I don't remember so much plexiglass covering things either. I was and remain surprised that they allow tourists to walk on the bare floors.
