Glasgow Daily Photo

A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

George Square Winterfest

Posted by Jackie on December 19, 2009


I’ll return to Buchanan Street in a few days, but of course no Christmas in central Glasgow would be complete without a look at George Square. The lights are basically the same every year, although it had a slightly less blingy feel this year than last year (though bear in mind this is relative – compared to everywhere else in Glasgow at Christmas, George Square is still like Las Vegas). This picture shows the City Chambers at the far end of the square, Walter Scott’s column lit up in stripy red lights as usual (at least he doesn’t have a giant red neon bow tie like he did the other year) and a bit of the fairground in the foreground.

    Nice shot. Great depth 🙂

  2. I like the way you’ve also picked up the mistiness.

    the fairground lights give off a bit of glamour against the mist – very pretty scene, the modern lights with the old buildings in the background
