Lights in trees

I am feeling really rubishy today with a cold and sore throat, so I'm afraid today's picture is a stock photo I took a few months ago but never used! At the various festivals - summer or winter - Edinburgh's trees get lit up beautifully. At the moment they're taking down all the winter decorations... which is why January always feels much darker and more depressing than December!

You're right about the lights, but cheer up, the days are getting longer.

Great Picture!

To all the folks out there: If you need a local tour guide to show you where to shoot such pictures like this, visit: Tourmandu.com :)

Tourmandu - Go Local! We do.

I visited Edinburgh in 2007 and enjoyed it a lot. I have been visiting your site regularly as a reminder of my great holiday. Here is a link to daily photos of Melbourne, were I live, in case you feel like having a 'vicarious' visit to my town! todaymelbourne.blogspot.com

That's a really beautiful shot, very cold and stark but inspiring at the same time. I love the previous one of the bonfire as well.

Just about to try a spot of photography myself so drawing inspiration from sites like yours at the moment :)
