Glasgow Daily Photo

A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

The Brightest Light

Posted by Jackie on November 23, 2007

I went out and took pictures of some of Glasgow’s Christmas lights this evening, and in December I’ll be featuring the pictures of the lights a fair bit. I was determined not to put the lights on the blog in November (I’m one of those grouchy people who get really cross with the shops being full of Christmas stuff before summer’s over, and leave Christmas shopping till the last minute!), but thought I would include this one, which is looking up through the lights that are strung across the walkway at the side of the Gallery of Modern Art. These are my favourite lights – unlike the ones in George Square, these are beautiful and tasteful and I don’t know a single person who doesn’t like them.

I’d taken a fair few pictures, and had put my camera away, but as I walked away I happened to look up and saw the moon through the lights. It’s not the sharpest photo (in my defence, it was freezing and I suspect my hands were shaking with the shivering!) but it does give you a taste of the effect of the lights.

    RO_Pumpkin, over in the UK Christmas lights are usually switched on sometime in November. This is much later than the shops, which are full of Christmas trees and other Christmas stuff from about September! It’s really annoying! Your way is much better.

    Pusa – I’ll certainly be featuring these lights again, as they are gorgeous. But I have decided that apart from today’s photo, I am going to be grumpy and keep Christmas for December! πŸ˜€

    That’s a great photo! Don’t you just love the full moon? I like its feminine energy.

    Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo. May I invite you to visit my two other websites Your Love Coach and The Goddess In You?

    Have a great weekend!

    The Goddess In You

  5. Actually the slight blur adds to the attractiveness I think. A really sharply focussed photograph would look toooooo cold and clinical.
