1000 lanterns

Yesterday was a gorgeous fall day so I headed out to the Montreal Botanical Gardens for the annual "Magic of Lanterns" festival. In some ways I loved how the lanterns sparkled in the sun even more than how they looked when dark descended. The buildings trimmed in light are always a fabulous source of yummy bokeh (those big beautiful round blobs of light). The festival is on until November 1 if you happen to be in the Montreal area.

I found you via http://www.graphic-exchange.com and I just wanted to drop a note that your photographs are simply stunning. I think I might have to come back to look at the pretties. :-)
