Hello Gena,

Maria said...

Beautiful that is and thanks for the visit.

Ed said...

Very nice, I agree with Lindy it does remind me of San Antonio too..:-)

Leena said...

Hello Gena,

thank you for your visit here faraway in the North :)
I can believe, those iceflowers are not common in your windows, they are not any more common here too, because we have triple glasses, but just in one window we have an old insulating material and moisture will come on the glass and gets frozen in a frost, we had last weekend - 30 degrees Celsius. But don`t worry, we have always as warm inside as we want :)
Your photo is so clear and beautiful, thanks for a view!

My cousin`s daughter got married last summer and is now living in South Africa, the world is small nowadays.
Have a good day, Gena!

You caught the city lights very well here. I like the ribbon of light reflected in the water. Dusk is a beautiful time of day, isn't it?

Thin ribbon of light
trailing through the calm waters—
leading me to where?


Chilling grey sky!

Ferreira-Pinto said...

Great lighting!

Ralph said...

The sky is stunning as it is nearly dark, but not totally. The barest of light from above but along the street, the bright lights complementing the sky. Nice reflections in the water too. A nice shot!

Maia said...

What an amazing night shot Gena, a real masterpiece.
I like that perfect light reflection in the water and and the colors of the night sky.
