Illumination of Rouen Cathedral (Updated Impressionism Video)

We spent 2 days docked in Rouen. There were so many beautiful old buildings to see, lovely shops, confectioners & bakeries. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Rouen. On the second evening we walked out to to see a light show that is projected onto the cathedral.

This presentation celebrates Impressionism and art. Rouen is near Giverny which boasts Monet's beautiful gardens. Monet painted Rouen Cathedral more than 20 times. I've updated this video this one will play on my blog.  The one I had linked previously was edited down quite a bit, this one shows all the transitions & the part at the end where it's as if the cathedral  is rendered in paint. The waterlilies & flower petal sequences are shown in full, now. If you enjoyed the original video, this one is even better!

Rouen has a strong connection with Joan of Arc. She was imprisoned, tried & burned at the stake in Rouen. They have built a modern church in her honor. This presentation is entitled Jeannes (Joans)
