Intriguing Eiffel Tower Photo

I came across this photo in today's headlines....The image was reportedly captured by someone in an apartment.  Coincidentally, the Eiffel Tower was lit up in blue lights when the the bolt of lightning appeared.  (No, the lightning didn't affect the Eiffel Tower's lights; the lighting of the iconic landmark alternates between red, white (clear), and blue lights.)

Lightning Over the Eiffel Tower, Photographed from an Apartment in Paris

For those who may not have visited Paris, the Eiffel Tower has an elevator that takes you to an observation deck at the very top, as well as a fine-dining restaurant, housed on its second floor.  What a great way to take in the views of this magnificent city!
