Prospect Park In Lights
I finished a much-needed day at home alone yesterday with a ride around Prospect Park, to photograph Prospect Park In Lights, a set of holiday lighting displays at the various grand entrances to the park. It was a mild evening (aren't they all, nowadays?) and perfect to be out on the bike.

Prospect Park in Lights

What a beautiful treat for spectators. The sequences of distant & close-up views are so effective.

I'll be honest (I know, I know, I'm sorry): I hate Prospect Park in Lights, hate-hate-hate it (mainly, I'm just sore because they mucked with Grand Army Plaza's Christmas tree/Hanukkah menorah shtick).

But, your photos are gorgeous!

Thanks! What exactly did they muck with? I'm not sure I've paid that much attention to the holiday decorations in years past.

They used to have a real (well, a "real") Christmas tree in place of that conical thing, and there wasn't that sheet of lights that they sort of haphazardly flung around the Hanukkah menorah.

Parts of the park are nice with the lights, but Grand Army Plaza was just fine without 'em, and if it ain't broke don't fix it.
