The staircase up to Prague Castle will literally take your breath away, and not only with the view that is available if you lift your eyes from the steps to look over Lesser Town. That wall of gold in the distance is made of building facades on the Vltava River.
There’s that perfect moment when the sky is still blue but the oranges of sodium vapor lamps begin to scatter from the surfaces of the clouds and the Eiffel Tower looks particularly otherworldly. When so many American cities have switched to lighting their streets with white LED lights, I was surprised at how much of Paris is still lit by sodium lamps.
Trains zipping along in the night.
At night, the lit up Seattle Great Wheel sticks out against Elliot Bay like a sore thumb.
The themed outdoor trees at Longwood Gardens are really something to see. The brightly lit tree was all the more inviting for being on the edge of an unlit meadow in the evening. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Getting into the Christmas spirit with some pictures from Longwood Gardens’ Christmas display! I always enjoy the holiday display, and photographing the lights was a lot of fun, getting the contrast between the motion of people in the center of the path with the stationary folks on the sides.
I just thought the clouds in the sky looked super appealing last night.
Following Thanksgiving, all structures seems to sprout these luminescent, multicolored silica-and-copper growths. I’m sure the world’s building biologists are hard at work on a cure for “Christmas lights”, but in the mean time, they sure are pretty.
It was a little cold outside, but the holiday lighted fountain show at Longwood Gardens was worth standing around in it.
The simple joys of a summer fair.
I can’t wait until next Christmas!
