Sacré-Cœur on Montmartre Hill

This is our entry in Dutch goes the photo!’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Hill.

Sacré-Cœur, or the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, stands 83 meters above the top of the butte (hill) Montmartre, which extends 130 meters above sea level, for a total height of 213 meters.  (Sacré-Cœur is the tall domed monument surrounded by the green space in the middle of the photo.)  The photo was taken from the top level of Montparnasse Tower, which itself stands 210 meters tall, putting Sacré-Cœur essentially at eye level for the photographer.

 

This photo was taken during the blue hour just before 9 PM on April 24, 2019.  Specs are:

Canon 200D, ISO 1250, f/5.6, 1/200 sec, 135 mm.
