[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Built on one of the twelve holy hills composing the city of Antananarivo, the Rova , was the official residence of the kings and queens of Madagascar. The last queen, Ranavalona III lived ther until the french exiled her in 1896 after the invasion of the country.
In 1995, the palace was burnt under circumstances that were never explained but probably criminal.
Rebuilding has started and the first phase of the renovation is now almost over.
The picture was taken on a cloudy day as the sun was setting, allowing me to capture one of the rare sunrays of this afternoon

A première vue je pensais à une desaturation partielle, mais en lisant ta note je vois que non.
C'est excellent, photographié à un moment où la lumière a été , je dirais ...ensorcelante.
C'est magnifique; bien cadré bien expliqué.
