Two takes on a carousel

We had one day of bad weather in Florida, but didn’t let the tornado warnings and frequent rainstorms deter us. This was for our friend J, and we made the most of it. Fortunately, a lot of stuff is indoors.

While waiting for a ride in the Magic Kingdom, I took this shot of the carousel near Sleeping Beauty’s castle:

Carousel redux

It was “blue hour” and everyone was wearing plastic ponchos, including us. They look kind of gossamer-like, don’t they?

About twenty minutes later, it rained again and there was a nice reflection on the other side:

Both shot with the iPhone.

    Amazing shots! How great to see a carousel at night–truly majestic.

    It rained when we were at Disney, too. I’ll bet the parks just rake in the $$$ with all those poncho sales.

    Love the warm glow reflecting in the puddles. The people look cocooned in their ponchos. 🙂

    Amazing night shots, Carole. I am so impressed with the quality of images you get with your iPhone.

    I love these, such a special mood, the light, the colors. I find carousels quite melancholic, don’t why.

    It’s true – blue hour = gossamer rain covers. So pretty for such a mundane thing.

    I think we were in Florida at the same time!!! We braved the torrential rain and made the most of our time there. We Magic Kingdom’d it almost every day with our park hopper tickets. I’d never been before, but it was just amazing!
