Legislature Grounds in the Daytime

The Alberta legislature grounds are beautiful all times of the year. Yesterday we went to the grounds to explore and see what is going on for the holiday season. It just so happened that the entertainment was starting yesterday, with choirs in the rotunda and the ceremony of turning on the lights. It was cold and we didn’t stay for the light ceremony but I will be sure to get to that later. The dome is totally covered in plastic as it undergoes a clean-up so I am happy that I have photos from other years. It is the 100th anniversary of the legislature so I find it ironic that it is coverd up at this time of year however the big deal was at the beginning of the year.The fact that the dome is covered up gives me the challenge to take photos of other things  so here is what I saw:

    Great light in all the photos,I especially like the Berries and Lights, and the light and shadows in Heavy Laden branches.

    • I liked the berries and lights too because of the inclusion of the light standard in the background. At first I popped it up but preferred the light shining down and making it a bit hazy and the play of light and shadows was what grabbed my attention..
