Dave, I knew this image was yours without seein' your name. Nice one.

It looks like its not finished, or its bein' overhauled. The arch framin' the cloud is a shot to consider for the future without that scaffoldin'. Yours is great nonetheless, very stark.

Thanks for your comment Paul. The 'unfinished' bit inside the arch is part of the permanent structure. Its a huge canopy over the central area where people walk around. What appears to be scaffolding in the left side is the framework for the lift system which takes sightseers to the top. It's just an amazing structure. But then I think the whole of La Defense is amazing.
