The Big Switch On Photos

I've given a descriptive of the Big Switch On in Ely on My Ramblings, so I won't go into detail here. Pop over and have a read. Here's some of the photos I took. The live Nativity was hard to photograph as despite thinking we had a great spot to see it from, we had the official cameras and electricals near us too!

These are the sort of lights that are dotted around the tops of some of the shops in Ely

Believe it or not, these are some of the lights on the Christmas Tree on the Market Place

I'm never sure what setting to have my camera on, but here's a clearer shot. At least the bulbs look like the proper coloured ones not white household bulbs they usually have.
Hey, its a tree with lights and a star!! Are you impressed?
Some of the wise men - ok, two are actually wise women

The real wise men and their camels
The Wise Women and Shepherds

Do you think they were wondering what they'd done with their sheep?

Last, but by no means least ~ Ely Cathedral Girls Choir

Thanks for looking. If any of you have any ideas on getting better night photographs like this, please share them as I so want to improve my photography.

Love and hugs

Alexander Palace

Some of you will know I was at Alexander Palace at the end of September this year for the Big Stamping and Scrapbooking show. My friends and I took some photographs when we first arrived and some more before we left. Here's a selection of those I took:

I've cropped the next photo to focus on what it says

Thank you for looking

Frosty Morning

I went out the other morning at about 7:30am to take David to work so I could have the car for the day. We were met with the first of a few consecutive frosty mornings. Here's what greeted us and I hope you've got your scarf and gloves on.

I'm always amazed by how pretty it looks when in reality it can be so dangerous on the roads (and paths).
Thanks for looking
