Christmas Lights In The Heart Of The City

Aside from one shot in tomorrow's post, this ends my series on Christmas for the year, with views of Christmas lights from around Confederation Park, the National Arts Centre, the War Memorial, Parliament Hill, and the Chateau Laurier. I took these shots within a half hour on the weekend.

  11. @Tex: that's the aboriginal veterans memorial... quite an impressive monument, I've always thought.

    @Tomas: indeed.

    @Marianne: thanks!

    @Karl: thank you!

    @Janis: and now, just a few days later, we have some proper snow to go with them!

    @Norma: me too.

    @EG: it certainly is.

    @Furry Gnome: I've always liked that monument.

    @VP: there are a lot. The federal government is behind these lights, and the people who put them up really do a great job.

    @Nancy: I agree!

    @Red: I did, yes.

  24. Lights like this can be sheer magic. It certainly can help brighten a long winter's night.

  25. Plenty of Christmas lights, but the one I like best is the last, in which the light is more intrinsic lighting, not seasonal lighting.
