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.
beautiful eagle monument! love when the trees sparkle. :)ReplyDelete
Let's wait until next year, we dismiss the Christmas decorations with sadness, but its beauties are not forgotten.ReplyDelete
Wonderful Christmas Lights and photos !
Those lights make the winter night look so warm and inviting!ReplyDelete
One of the things I most look forward to at Christmastime: the lights!ReplyDelete
Very lovely at night this time of year.ReplyDelete
Quite the statue in that first picture!ReplyDelete
So many lights, so many colors...ReplyDelete

Hey, I like the photos taken later. There's much more contrast. You certainly had many opportunities for photos with so many lights.ReplyDelete
You have there wonderful Christmas lights, beautiful.ReplyDelete
@Tex: that's the aboriginal veterans memorial... quite an impressive monument, I've always thought.ReplyDelete
@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.
I do love it when cities are all lit up for the holidays.ReplyDelete
Nice night shots, William! :)ReplyDelete

I think I'd prefer white lights in trees.ReplyDelete
I expect we will see snow shots from you tomorrow! It is a slushy mess here!ReplyDelete
I didn't see this amount of lights in our neighbourhood, it's beautiful.ReplyDelete
@Sharon: so do I.
@MB: they are, and yes, it is!
@Marleen: we do have some white lights, but I went more for the coloured lights.
@RedPat: no snow shots tomorrow, something else. It is snowing here today, which sufficed to say I love to see!
@Jan: I agree!

Wow, such gorgeous lights! You captured them so beautifully :-)ReplyDelete
Lights like this can be sheer magic. It certainly can help brighten a long winter's night.ReplyDelete
Plenty of Christmas lights, but the one I like best is the last, in which the light is more intrinsic lighting, not seasonal lighting.ReplyDelete
So pretty! Nicely photographed too.ReplyDelete
Lovely! I need to get to Ottawa!ReplyDelete
These are stunning! I have to figure out how to do night shots...ReplyDelete
