Holiday Lights in Downtown Frederick

Cityscape, Landscape, Photography

During the year-end holiday season each year downtown Frederick becomes so brightly alive with splendid light decoration on two main street, Market and Patrick Streets. There are people coming for Christmas shopping, for dinner at any of many good restaurants, for concert at music hall or just stroll around enjoying the holiday spirits. As I have posted earlier folks also coming to Carroll Creek to view the light small boat displays under the theme of “Sailing through the Winter Solstice”.

I took this first image two weeks ago with dry street conditions,


and oddly I was waiting for a rainy evening to come. Well, it did come two days ago so I quickly arrived the site to capture a few more photos. I like the wet streets and sidewalks that created the beautiful reflections. It was also more interesting in taking the photos of pedestrians with umbrellas.



Happy Holidays to All!!

    Thank you so much. The rain did make big difference for better, it was worth waiting for!

  3. Beautiful captures this festive season, Stephen. Your town looks really vibrant and warm with all those golden lights, rain or shine, day or night. I like how you looked out for people with umbrellas, and people in pairs too… The holiday season is about spending time with those that matter to you and having a good time. Great timing. Best wishes for the year ahead 🙂

      Thank you so much for your comments. It’s indeed a lively old town Frederick during the holiday season for people to shop, dine or just stroll around. I couldn’t wait for a rainy evening (funny) to shoot these images with nice reflections and of course people with umbrella! Wishing you a happy holiday season as well!
