Crane City ......




Lit up like a Christmas tree our city-scape is awash
with cranes of every description ... work has commenced
on the new $3.2 billion Royal Adelaide Hospital Complex
 I would imagine they will be there for a long time to come.

Not a pretty sight by day but night lights paint a different picture.

Congrats Dianne. Did you use a slow shutter speed for this one? I like the way the flood lights have starred and the softness of the reflections in the water.

Moi, I'm not a pretty sight by day either, but really dark nights help.

I think it's a good sign that economy is going well, I mean about new constructions and your picture is beautiful with great lights!

At least they are trying to make them look pretty at night. Will be worth it when the new hospital is complete.

Cranes are not the most attractive feature on the landscape but you have done them proud. It was on the news today that London has more cranes in operation than the rest of the uk put together.

Cool shot of all the cranes! It is nice to see new projects like this hospital construction!

Great capture of the lights!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River.

The lights are pretty, building worksites aren't a pretty site.

Jack said...

You are fortunate to live in an area where there is such a big project being undertaken. In the past, many of us thought of cranes as ugly. Now we think of them as economic activity, and we love them!

Karen said...

Sure is pretty at night. A great night shot!

Cranes do make for some good images - I'm going to see if I can find some!

The reflections are really nice.

Happy Tuesday!

Dianne it's fantastic that you're going to be getting a new hospital in your city, something we sure could use here as well, or reopen some which have closed.

This photo is beautiful, your night shots have come a long way!

Have a wonderful week!

lol, when I read the headline I thought it was about birds. :)

Beautiful shot of the lights reflecting in the water.

I like the light, and the reflection.

I'm one of those weird creatures who likes the sight of cranes, even in daylight. But I've never seen them look as lovely as here. Love the starbursts, too.
