I love the night time shots. The little colored lights are so festive.

Martha Z said...

Great shots, I find night photography to be a challange, sometimes I get good results, sometimes not.

Reader Wil said...

I love that photo with the moon reflected in the water! How wonderful are those lights in the streets.Thanks for sharing!

indicaspecies said...

Lovely night shots. I particularly like the last.

aka Penelope said...

Kay, your pretty photos show that night skies not only sparkle with stars but with manmade ingenuity. It must have been magical to be in Barcelona at Christmas!

Lesley said...

The Spanish Christmas lights are adorable.

Denise said...

Hi Kay, those are excellent night time shots. Must have been amazing to see first hand. Have a great weekend.

clairz said...

Oh, Kay, you've been to such wonderful places. I'm so glad you share!

Junneth said...

Wow! Fantastic sights. Christmas is really in the air.
Dear Kay I might confused you of my TTS post I mistakenly submitted the other site but it is here:http://junnethllesisblogspotcom-junneth.blogspot.com/2010/11/thursday-theme-song-8.html

Everyday Goddess said...

Very nice shots, right now i'd choose to be in San Felipe!

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Everyday Goddess --
Good choice. I love San Felipe. My parents wintered there for some 25 years, so I visited often.

Mr Puddy said...

Kay, Really great night life here, Fabulous photos, me and my mom love all : )

I loved visiting San Felipe when I was younger. The tide would go out so far you could walk a long ways out and see what was living on the flats. I remember finding deep impressions and was told that was where sharks would rest at high tide. - Margy

Those are some gorgeous shots Kay.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful night shots. Great clarity.

Ebie said...

Kay, Christmas in Spain is so festive! The lights have some geometric designs. I want to visit the places where you visit!

ladyfi said...

Real nice night shots ! My camera doesn't like night shots, lol!

Mara said...

I like how everything always looks so nice around Christmas time. So festive. And the photo taken in Barcelona must be my favourite!

Luna Miranda said...

fantastic night shots! the Barcelona photo is a stunner! it looks so much like Manila [after dark] during Christmas season.

jabblog said...

The moon reflected in the Sea of Cortez is beautiful. It outshines all the others for me, lovely though they are.

Cezar and Léia said...

Adorable sky at night!My favorite is the awesome moon at the second shot, just perfect! :)

Anvilcloud said...

Christmas anywhere in Spain looks fetching.

Dimple said...

Thanks for the comment, Kay.
I really like the last three shots; probably the night sign in San Diego is too familiar to me! The moon on the Sea of Cortez is my favorite of all, though!

Karine said...

Lovely series of shots, it's always wonderful to see the Christmas decorations pop up isn't it?

Leslie said...

Oh I LOVE that second photo of the moon and the little boats in the harbor.

Friko said...

Beautiful night skies. What a great pity it is that we can't stay awake day and night never to miss any of the wonders of the universe.

Friko said...

Another thing, thanks for your very speedy comment on my last post.
Yes, life did indeed get a lot better eventually.

EG Wow said...

Wonderful night shots, Kay! I need to work on that skill!

SquirrelQueen said...

Great night shots. I have been to San Diego and San Felipi several times but your photos make me want to add Spain to the list.

I see you were trying to find me concerning Jabblog's issue. Another blogger left me a comment on the blog.

It appears a blog I had listed on my blog roll was the problem. I have scanned my blog and it has no malware or viruses of any sort. Thanks Kay!

@ Powell River Books -- Wow, thanks, Margy, I'm going to look right now. You're a doll. Some time when I'm out at the coast, we must get together to talk about San Felipe!

Linnea said...

Well done! No blurriness at all! Wonderful lighting against the black skies! Thanks for stopping by!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Kay, that's just so wonderful. I love that you have favorite night skies from so many beautiful places. Thanks for sharing.

Ann said...

The last one is spain is fantastic.

Francisca said...

Luna Miranda and I thought the same: your last Barcelona shot could be taken on a Manila street in December. I'll have to remember to do that!

[When are you leaving for Europe again? I noticed somewhere you were taking an Amsterdam to southern France trip? Eight days?? Do you have a focus on this trip? There's just SO much to see!]

izzy said...

The moon over Baja and Christmas lights in Spain- colorful and warm, thanks !

Arti said...

Those are beautiful pics... All the shots are very well shot!!
Have a wonderful weekend:)

Willa said...
