yes it is and when dusk comes you can see the street lights in the distance  just like little orang and white dots and the car head lights just looks like fire fly's moving about in the night and the odd thing about the street light if there is a mist or a fog they give off a gold glow so its like a river of gold
each day is a blessing and I bless each day when it comes

Brilliant I've seen similar scenes in Ireland, the mist hovers at hedge level it looks so strange and yet so good

Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

in this photo you can see both sets of street lights the ones on the left are the old kind the ones on the right are the new l.e.d


the l.e.d lights seem to give out more light and are cheaper to run


each day is a blessing and I bless each day when it comes

Townie when I was doing my apprenticeship back in the 60's , we had a job at a charcoal factory to fix the overhead crane  around this area . Terrible job used to come out of there thinking you hadn't had a wash for 6 months .
