It's the start of Autumn and the start of several light festivals in my neck of the woods. For the first time, I attended an event called Luminous Botanicus at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. This is when the path leading up to the peak of Mt. black is illuminated with very colorful lights. It's quite a mesmerising experience to attend this event. Do you have lights shows or events at your place?

I did not understand how the photo was about until I realized that it is tilted on the side.

@hereandthere I was looking and wondering if those were branches of trees, until I realized that the photo was not in the correct perspective.

I actually downloaded this from my Ipad and now that I'm using a PC, it's tilted!

There is an awesome display in Niagara Falls each winter....the Festival of Lights. Add some snow on the ground....some hot chocolate in hand.....a nice family outing.

I have enjoyed the Niagara Falls in summer. I would like to check it out in Winter though. Yes, there's a lot to see around the area.

That was probably a very illuminating experience and not too many of those kind of celebrations occur around here so thank you for sharing

My pleasure, it was a good exercise going up the hill while enjoying the lights.

July fireworks are incredible. The light shows were just new over, here, maybe around 4 years ago.
