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:
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.
Oh yeah. Eight bucks for some thin plastic with a Mickey Mouse logo. Sure beats carrying an umbrella, though.
What a beautiful night show! I love the reflection on the ground too that is just fantastic!
Thanks! I was surprised that the shots turned out at all, because the light was really poor that night.
The reflection on the ground is my favorite too!
Same here. 🙂
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.
Thanks, Cheryl. These were a nice surprise.
Would you believe it’s 82F here today? 50 yesterday.
We are going through some temp extremes too, Carole. Zero Celsius overnight and climbing into the low teens during the day. Spring cometh … it’s just a little more reluctant than usual.
I guess I shouldn’t complain. It’s funny, a month ago 50s would have seemed warm. Now it’s cold to me.
I love these, such a special mood, the light, the colors. I find carousels quite melancholic, don’t why.
They make me nostalgic for when my sons were young enough to ride.
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!
How funny! Thank heaven we only had one bad day. It would be terrible to have a whole week of that rain. Those hopper tickets are great.
