The Bright Nights Christmas Train ride in Stanley Park, Vancouver is always one of the highlights of the Xmas season and all tickets sold go to support the BC Burn Fund, which partners every year with the Vancouver Park Board to present a truly magical event as you can see.
Special thanks to the BC Professional Fire Fighters and all the volunteer groups who spend countless hours making it all possible.
Nothing like a little magic with which to start the week. This morning’s sunrise illuminated my favourite willow tree on Kitsilano Beach that has featured in so many posts on thechangingpalette over the past few years. Definitely another one worthy of sharing.
Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that we have just returned from a truly memorable visit to the beautiful and historic city of Barcelona.
For my changingpalette followers here are some of our favourite moments, from Antoni Gaudi’s stunning Sagrada Familia cathedral, to his La Pedrera rooftop sculptures and his mosaics in Park Guell, to the glorious paintings of Joan Miro at the Fundacio Joan Miro in Parc de Montjuic, to dinner at the iconic 4Gats restaurant and before leaving the celebrations in the streets on Spain’s National holiday on October 12th.
As you watch the slideshow enjoy the guitar of Edgar Moffatt who treated us to his art as we waited in line for the opening of The Prado in Madrid. (Our Madrid visit to follow).
Out walking on Spanish Banks this morning on this beautiful British Columbia Day these two caught my eye and seemed to express what this holiday is all about. Since this week’s Lens-Artist photo challenge is “Blue” what could be better.
