GIVERNY: IMPRESSIONS AND REFLECTIONS


Many visitors, as they shuffle in a slow queue around Monet’s beautiful lily pond at Giverny, will have noticed a congruence between the reflections in the water and the painted impressions of the scene by an ageing artist with failing eyesight. A few will have decided to see if photography can produce an effect reminiscent at least of the great paintings. Mrs RH is one such, and these are all her photos taken a few days ago.

    • It’s very lovely, of course – but very crowded indeed. It’s possible to find an oasis of calm but mostly it’s a slow crawl round and ten thousand cameras detonating at every turn. Especially round the lily pond. Check whether it’s a holiday weekend (we took an impulse long w/e – it was Ascension). And prebook tickets online to side-step the queues. But despite the bustle, it was a wonderful place to visit…
