A great spot is known in Paris.
Take your tripod and come at night.

When you are in front of the Arche de la Defense, follow " Les 4Temps", and you will see stairs on your right. (Place du couchant)
Just climb and you arrive at the place.

Photography Tips

You'll need a Wide Angle. I was with an 11-16mm at 11 on an APSC camera.
Hard to find this spot. Take steps towards LA Temps, after climbing steps. you will see a path on the right. You will pass through between two restaurants (i forgot the names). Go to the end of this path, and take the right... keep going around 50 meters you will see a staircase to your right.

Beautiful photo!!! your coordinates are not clear on the map because there is no pedestrian path from your point. Were you at the shopping centre?

Hey Alona ! I've added a "backstage" pic (a capture from Google street view) and some informations in my post. Hope that's great now ;)

I guess you don't have any other photo from this spot? Because I would guess that the photo is copyright protected, even if it's a screenshot from Google Street View. That's also the reason why I am now always taking photos with my smartphone from behind the scenes, so that it's easier for others to find, even if it may seem obvious to myself. Really great spot + photo by the way, thank you very much for sharing it!

Excellent point you raised Manuel.!! So after reading Google Maps guidelines, I guess we are ok since none of these photos generate proceeds or are commercial in nature :-)
