A view from the heights.

Picture taken from the Musée Dauphinois, on the road that leads to the Bastille (which must be the highest point in Grenoble).

On the background, you can see the Tour Perret (Perret Tower), 80 meter high and built in 1925 by the Perret brothers on the occasion of the International Exhibition of Hydroelectric Power.

Beautiful view of the roof tops and the city. The lamp post sets it off.

I agree that the lamp post adds a different dimension to the photo. Lovely!

I like you photograph very much. I like the background mountains with a bit of snow left on them. I wish it was less hazy so I could see more, but maybe another time.

Your work is very interesting to somebody who never sees anything higher in the sky than birds.

On voit bien que la ville est encaissée, entourée de montagnes, ça doit chauffer l'été, je me trompe?

alice> oulà non, tu ne te trompes pas ! Déjà aujourd'hui, le beau temps est enfin revenu et c'est étouffant... et on n'est que mi-mai !

Alice said in her post that as the city seems to be surrounded by mountains it must get really hot during summertime and I just answered that it was already the case mid-may! Hot hot hot!

I love this panorama of Grenoble. It has foreground, middle ground and background. I could look at it for hours, there is so much to see.

What a wonderful view! I love that huge mountain in the background. And the roof tops with all the chimneys. So nice! :D

Great shot - I love the lamppost in the foreground too. It's nice to get an idea of what the city looks like as a whole.
