O M G this is fantastic, Ellen. I can't even begin to imagine how you managed this one. I'm often having a hard time seeing beauty in cities but you make the city look so attractive. Bravo.

Other than to say that this is incredible, that you talent is unlimited, that the colors and lights have a magical touch, words can do no justice dear friend.
Annie and I hope your Sunday is just as beautiful as this picture.
