January Light: Kelvin bridges

Today’s theme is lamplight, specifically on bridges over Glasgow’s River Kelvin. Above is one of the lamps from Kirklee Bridge. Below are two views of Kelvinbridge, in daylight and at twilight.

Finally, the most ornate bridge is probably the one on the Kelvin Way near Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery. Some additional streetlight on show here too.

January Light: Stirling Castle

A duo of square skies seen from Stirling Castle – late afternoon and early evening sunlight. Inside the castle, there was plenty of candlelight and firelight – both artificial, but still square.

January Light: City Halls

In Glasgow, the City Halls contain a number of concert venues rather than the seat of municipal government – that’s the City Chambers. The grand hall, above, opened in 1841 and was extensively renovated about 15 years ago. The beautiful chandeliers supply roof-light, there’s some spotlight, and also a bit of projected-light on the back wall showing the orchestra’s name. On this occasion, we were awaiting the delight of a performance of Mozart’s Requiem. Linked to Becky’s January Squares challenge – words ending in light.

January Light: Campbeltown

A shot from Campbeltown in November 2018. We arrived as the day faded to twilight and the buildings, including this clock-tower, were illuminated by spotlights. Linked to Becky’s current square challenge #JanuaryLight, but I confess I originally took this for her December 2018 challenge, #TimesSquare, which I failed to enter. Just shows nothing is ever wasted!

January Light: Provosts’ lamps

lamplight trio of squares today. The residence of the Provost (Mayor), or Lord Provost, used to be denoted by a special decorative streetlight in Scottish towns and cities. Many still exist. The daylight example above is from Lanark, the twilight shot is from Broughty Ferry near Dundee, and the lamp taken in darkness is from Glasgow.
