ABC Wednesdays - N for Northern Lights

Throughout the duration of Adelaide's recent Festival of Arts, several buildings along North Terrrace were painted with light. The Northern Lights' show was first seen here two years ago; see my previous posts here and here.

This year one additional building was illuminated; the rear of Parliament House. This particular slide celebrates the fact that our Festival of Arts first started 50 years ago.


The ABC Wednesday meme was initiated by Denise Nesbitt. To find out more about ABC Wednesdays and see other participants' contributions click here.

Hi Gordon,

You have been missed, and glad you are back again. The lights to the buildings are incredible.

I found our you have a day off for ANZAC. We in New Zealand didn't.

We are saddened with our helicopter crash.

Gordon said...

Hi folks. I have had an extended break, but it was remiss of me not to let my readers know what was happening - sorry.

I've had lots of other distractions over the last few months including preparing for and going on a cycling holiday in Europe.
