Tree under a canopy of light

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 11 December 2010 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

This was the first set of Christmas illuminations to be switched on in South Shields. The huge tree under its canopy of LED lights stands at the junctions of King Street, Mile End Road, Fowler Street, and Ocean Road in the town centre. So I guess we can justifiably still call the place "the lights."

PENTAX K100D 3/10 second F/16.0 ISO 3200 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Because of the "creases" in the canopy, I kinda see an angel or bat in the lights. lovely shot-but you didn't fancy colour?

Nice net made of lights! I love all kinds of Christmas things and lights. We have had lights about 2 weeks now in Turku but this is the Finland's Christmas City after all. :)
