My favorite time of day for photography - when the blue of the sky meets the blue of the earth! Nothing beats it, and your photos are scrumptious! My only question is, "Did you use a tripod?" 'Cause, it not, you have very steady hands!

These are just super, Ciel.

It looks as if you live in a storybook, Ciel. Beautiful.

I was going to ask the same question jacob did (tripod). Town Hall is very beautiful at night with the lighting. The tree is awesome and it makes mine look really lame, but I don't have a government budget ;-)

WOW! It's beautiful at night!

So festive! With the snow and lights that's the perfect mood for the holidays. And yes, you're comment about the cherry on the cake makes sense. We use it too. :)

So festive and beautiful! What a gorgeous city hall.

Jack said...

They both look great when studied after clicking to embiggen them.

Soir seems to be the magic hour for photos during Christmas season.

@ Jacob and Woody: no tripod. The first one I put my Canon Ixus point and shoot on a railing, the second one is hand held.

@ Dan: this blog is not a place where I will accept racist comments. So either you keep them to yourself, or you refrain from commenting.

Ah, voilà! c'est tout de suite mieux! Magique et féérique! et merci à la photographe qui n'a pas du avoir chaud pendant les prises de vue! :)

Even better at night!

Beautiful photography. Looks like a pro card.

Francisca said...

I think the night version brings out the festive spirit more...

Quand on branche la Mairie, tout le quartier autour se retrouve dans le noir ?


Il faut dire que le bâtiment est déjà magnifique. Illuminée ainsi, la mairie a sa place dans la ville-soleil.

Mince ! Je lis à gauche "12 days" avant Noël....Et il me manque tellement de cadeaux, encore....
