A blanket of snow from last winter covered the ground near the bell tower in Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver. If you look to the far right, you will see the tall tree that the city lights up for Christmas.
Last week, when I walked down to the Columbia River to take photos of the Christmas ships,I returned home by way of the park and got a photo of the tree lit up for Christmas celebrations.
It was hard to take a photo because of the glaring lights from condos nearby and store front shop lights. The park also had poles illuminated which were a distraction of the photo I wanted to get. This is the best I could do.
