Christmas Harbour Lights

And before the festive season is over I bring you the Christmas Harbour lights of Mousehole.

Snowflakes on the hill
Snowflakes on the hill
A robin in the trees
A robin in the trees
And lights around the harbour
lights around the harbour

And did anyone spot the champagne being poured?

    My favourite is the spouting whale!
    Very nice, Jude.
    (My eye aren’t good enough for the champagne, I suspect…)
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      On the wall in the last photo Pete. There is a sea monster too, but we didn’t see that one lit up.

  2. Sue says:

    Oh, what fun…and yes, I saw the champagne!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I missed catching it once poured – tiny sparkles appear above the glass!

      1. Sue says:

        Oh, shame! Challenge for next year, then!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Given the amount of traffic I think this may be a one hit wonder for me!

        2. Sue says:

          Oh, yes, of course!

    Beautiful! I just re-read the Mousehole Cat–a special tiny town!

    1. Heyjude says:

      A lovely book – one I bought for my grandchildren years ago. Must buy more copies for the newest ones!

  4. Joanne Sisco says:

    I had to go back 3 times before I caught the champagne 🙂
    … I’m still smiling over the name *Mousehole*. England really does have some very odd names 😉

  5. Lucid Gypsy says:

    I’m so dippy, I was looking for people popping champagne!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Well that is possible!

    How far are you from Mousehole, Jude? 🙂 Did you see Jaspa’s post last week? I thought then that it looked lovely. Thank you for ‘illuminating’ me 🙂 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      I don’t follow Jaspa though I do look in now and then. I guess we are about 15 minutes drive away from Mousehole. How’s it in the Algarve then? Sunny? We had stunning blue skies today and yesterday and my first frost since moving here this morning! I think I may have lost some of my succulents 😦

      1. restlessjo says:

        14km walk of too many ups and downs and a blister, but I’m taking it easy at a fish restaurant with Becky tomorrow. To be fair, there was a lovely meal today too, and very nice company. Wet overnight and cloudy early on but it was 19C by the time we came back down from the hills. 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          Enjoy the fish and say hi to Becky from me 🙂

  7. You’re a brave woman, tackling lights. I’m hoping ours hang around long enough for me to get the hang of snapping them. I’ve made a few forays, and got a few clues by failure rather than technical know-how. That first one with reflections is a real beauty.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I use a very fast prime lens to shoot lights and indoors. Seems to work well, other than I have to zoom with my feet which isn’t possible in a harbour!

  8. Dina says:

    You night colourshots are very beautiful, Jude. Didn’t you use a tripod?

    1. Heyjude says:

      I never use a tripod Dina. I really ought to try using one some times, it would have been tricky here as it was quite crowded. I do have a reasonably fast prime lens which works fairly well hand-held.

  9. Such amazing photos and place ! I would like to be there 🙂
    I invite to my Christmas posts. F. ex. Christmas in Madrid:
