Lighting the Plaza,


Last night was the lighting of the plaza. It was the first time I had been to it since moving here. The visit unfortunately didn't last long because it was freezing last night. Santa's visit was probably longer than mine.

Very fine night shot, Randy! Great lighting. I see the luminaries along the path, too.

Freezing doesn't sound good, though...

Have a great weekend.

Looks beautiful Randy. I know what you mean about cold weather.

What a lovely night light photo of the Plaza! When you say, "freezing" - do you means 45 degrees (by NM measure)?

By the way, "Lingonberries" are small, red, tart berries which grow on low bushes in Sweden. Easy to find them in jars at IKEA!

A really nice picture: those lights are beautiful!

There's something magical in Christmas decoration, don't you think? ;-)

Sharon said...

You did a good job getting us a picture in spite of the cold. It was cold here last night too. I look kind of silly in my coat and scarf up next to tourists in shorts and shirtsleeves.

I know absolutely nothing about Santa Fe, so it's going to be fun watching this unfold. I loved the little lanterns...but I never knew it got cold there! Beautiful night photograph!

RedPat said...

Gorgeous! Like everyone else I wonder how cold it was? Our lighting takes place tonight at City Hall.

The lights look like fairies lights - a wonderful scene.

Great night shot!

Growing up in Lubbock, Texas, the lumineros were always on the sidewalk leading to the front door of «Louis'» childhood home, courtesy of his mother - who got the idea from the lighting of the plaza in Santa Fe.

Kathy said...

Great lights shot. I need lessons on your technique!

I love walking around the plaza at Christmas time! It's so festive. Christmas Eve on Canyon Rd, too. Though I think it was around 22 degrees last year.... brrrrrr!
I'm taking a little blog break as I catch up w/ family & friends, but I'll check back in here & there. Hope you're having a nice holiday season, Randy!
