The Bay Xmas windows on Queen become magical at night

16 Dec

The Christmas windows at the Bay truly become magical at night. The darkness deepens the colours and the there is no reflection on the glass. It was fun to photograph the windows by day, when the reflections in the glass show the surrounding buildings, but I think I prefer the night photography.

If you have not yet seen the Bay windows, try to make time for a visit. They are wonderful.

           The adults seem more fascinated by the windows than the children.
