Aerial pictures of Versailles
In the past year, some photographers from Wikimédia France had worked with the association ToucanWings who promotes aerial photography using UAV. This summer, as part of its partnership with the chapter (see previous TMIG coverage), the Palace of Versailles keenly agreed to three photo sessions above the palace and the park. More than 150 photographs have been uploaded on Wikimedia Commons.
