Christmas Lights and Lights at Christmas

My walk this week, being in an early morning urban landscape, remained dark almost to the end of the walk. Some of the Christmas lights of Swansea were to be seen creating abstract growth patterns against the night sky, but there were more abstract patterns than this to be seen in the lighting at this early hour.

Some long exposure and movement of the lens allowed the traffic to create light trails en route to daytime and the darkness in other areas created some gloomy golden architectural patterns.

The abstract nature of the urban and maritime surroundings really caught my eye. Looking up, down and around me, I found the darkness reluctantly revealing shapes, forms and patterns that I would not see at any other time but for the dim and reflected light of this early morning nightscape.
