Laury and I ooh'ed and aah'ed over the illuminated back side of Sacre Coeur and couldn't stop taking photos of its almost surrealistic beauty. It almost didn't look real with its intricate details sharply etched against the black night sky. And the fact that there were hardly any other people here made it feel a bit eerie after the brightly lit gaiety of the front side and Place du Tertre just around the corner.
FYI...Sacre Coeur is just as beautiful in the light of day. Especially early in the morning when Laury and I caught it before the hordes of tourists arrived.
