Christmas Lights at MediaCity UK #3

Our final hour or so in MediaCity UK and now it’s time to see the Christmas lights. To begin the show we see the tree lights outside Quay House.

At last, a decorated and illuminated Christmas tree.

Okay, so it isn’t as big as the one outside John Lewis in Liverpool, but the idea is there. A pretty Christmas tree icon. See, I told you earlier that we’d see some festive lights.

Beside the Christmas tree, there was this tent/tepee thing where I think that food and drinks where being served. There was also a pretty little illuminated arch to walk through.

Our final image from MediaCity Uk is of these illuminated swans. I suppose I should have taken a video, but I wasn’t sure if I could have uploaded it. There were about a dozen illuminated swans doing synchronised swimming in the canal. They appeared to be being controlled by someone quite near to where I was standing.

Tomorrow is going to be a complete departure. I had intended to carry on posting images of town centre Christmas lights, but I never got to go anywhere like that. The situation changed with the Omicron variant of Covid-19. Since then, the only places that I’ve been to with my camera have been countryside-type places where people were few and far between. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

I couldn’t leave MediaCity without my final shot of the studios across the Quays.

EXIF data: All photographs were taken using my Fujifilm X-T4 26 MP cropped-sensor, mirrorless camera together with A Fujinon XF 16-55 mm f/2.8 lens. Shutter speed 1/20 secs @f/4 and 16 mm. ISO was 5000.
