Sacré Coeur at Sunset

Sacré Coeur has a unique vibe. I don’t know if the atmosphere is always like this, but when I went, the place was vibrant. The path up the hill was a slow climb with street hustlers and peddlers tempting passersby.

At the top of Montmartre, shoulder-to-shoulder crowds packed the Christmas market and the church. If you are late, forget about finding an unobstructed view of the sunset.

Update: I had to re-upload this photo. For retina quality photos, I read that I could save them in a lower quality setting, which quickened the load times. That was pretty much true for most photos, where I could see the higher resolution, but no noise when photos were saved in Medium (30) instead of High (60) Quality. For images with a lot of sky, that was not true. I could see obvious banding at the Medium Quality.
