What I remember the most in November since I had been living in Chartres is the weather... rain and wind almost all of the days!
It's autumn! Yes I know... until today I still keep searching for the best place for autumn foliage picture shot in the city. My favorite is the autumn tunnel of Butte des Charbonniers. You should go there in early season before the wind blows down all the yellow gold color leaves.
Do you know other nice places in the region for autumn foliage? Do let me know!
