When I was in Chester, it was the only day that it rained. So these opinions about many rains in UK are exaggerated :). In the evening I was still walking around and even in rain it was magical.
I wish you magical this evening, full of peace, joy and love, and many gifts from Santa, if you were good :).
Another shot in WS.

This is a beautiful Christmas scene, its like one of those small model buildings that you buy at Christmas to leave on your window sill, but real!! Beautiful selection of lights across this fine architecture. I type this while browsing websites to check prices on air fares in the new year :)
Thanks as always for the share Malgo, and have a wonderful Christmas.
Best wishes from Ireland

hi anna bolena. wow, chester's architecture seems to be belonging to elisabethean times, though, my wish from santa would be to see it in a better white balance, without the weird greens :P
and my other wish from the santa is a new job, and i was fairly good through the whole year. do you think it will come true? :)

You certainly got around on your brief trip to the UK. One of my favourite places is Chester. Superb night time capture here. Very well framed and expertly exposed. Great detail. A very Merry Christmas to you, I hope you don't have to spend too much time in front of the stove:-)

Nice lights on houses and Christmas tree, well composed, just a bit noisy but it's always difficult in the dark night. Joyeux Noël !

Your photograph has captured the mood of an English Christmas town with great honesty. Even when it rains, the sparkle is still there. I'm glad you were able to experience it!
Have a lovely Christmas; I too have things to do in the kitchen ... in a moment, Bev :-)

Seasons Greetings to you and yours - Brian.

Two very good pictures of the old houses and interesting arcades in Chester. This could well be used as a Christmas card.
I wish you a Merry Christmas!

I can think of 3 movies when I see this photo, Matrix, Hulk and Flubber :-). The green light is the star of the shot. The light makes the architecture stand out so beautifully. Everything is glowing and shining in the frame, just like the faces of majority of people at the moment in your part of the world. Superb clarity, colors and contrast. Thanks for sharing.
Wish you a Merry Christmas as well.

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours! A fun and traditional way to mark the holiday, what's better than a huge light filled tree? :) This imagery certainly carries with it that Christmas mood, bright and colorful indeed! Your night out on the town has paid off well to capture the spirit of the season. Thanks for sharing the sentiment. Here's to wishing you the very best and most happy holiday season. May your feet stay "itchy." :)
My warm and friendliest regards,

Cela valait la peine de sortir dans le froid nocturne pour revenir avec cette composition de circonstance. Tout est superbement illuminé dans cette image aux teintes de jaune et vert.

Tantissimi auguri anche a te e famiglia

Hi Malgorzata, Merry Christmas and happy holidays. Colourful Christmas card here with brilliant view of different Christmas lightings. Wonderfully captured.

Wonderful this Christmas postcard, linking the charm of the Christmas tree, with that group of splendid façades, a beauty at night.
Very good color in natural tones.
Magnificent .... both brightness and sharpness.
Well captured. I Like
I wish you a Merry Christmas in the company of family and friends.
All the best to you.

per il Natale hai scelto una foto sfavillante di luci e di colori, il miglior modo per ricordare quanto la festa abbia un significato non solo religioso ma anche edonistico, che si spera serva anche a rendere tutti più fraterni e disponibili verso il prossimo.
Se il mondo fosse fatto solo di iscritti a TE, penso che la vita sulla Terra sarebbe priva di conflitti, ma fatta solo di scambio di sane opinioni e di fratellanza, ma purtroppo sappiamo che non è così.
Sia quantomeno questa particolare giornata un momento di riflessione per tutti gli uomini di buona volontà.
Ciao tanti auguri di un felice Natale.

Deux très belles photos nocturnes de ces jolies maisons de Chester. J'ai même une petite préférence pour la version du WS.

hundred of lights
I also liked the decorated buildings
shining in to the dark
