Photo of the Day

the sun shining through the Louvre Pyramid in Paris, France

Aglow in the City of Light

Your Shot community member Noemie Trusty submitted this stunning photo taken in the City of Light: the sun gleaming through the apex of the glass Louvre Pyramid, designed by architect I. M. Pei. “Millions of visitors from all over the world walk to the Pei Pyramide in the Louvre courtyard every year,” Trusty writes, and that’s entirely possible: Year after year, Paris is one of the most visited destinations in the world.
