The Festival of Lights in Lyon

Every year around this time, Lyon lights up with a festive light celebration. All over the town, they erect unique light sculptures, torches, lasers, candles, light shows, projections, strobes, and anything else you can think of.


This shot is very unusual and the light did unexpected things to the lens, but I quite like it!

    Oh- you're always the clever magician with the photos Mr. Customs. Nice picture with color and contrast to natural (looking) background.

    The blueness with the seemingly floating castle or church on top is a great combination. Then there is that small shop to the left that looks like a doorway to the normal;

    Very nice.

    very fairy tale with the well lit church/building on the top almost looking like a castle in the clouds
