The 2002 Christmas lights in Ross-on-Wye were switched on November 16th, which makes me wonder if it was worth taking them down from the previous year - after all, one of the local supermarkets did sell Christmas puddings all year round. These photographs were taken on December 8th, a mere nineteen days before Supermarket Easter.

I notice that in my guestbook, somebody who simply calls himself 'sam' has made the comment, 'I live there! aha! its not that good...' Well 'sam', to quote a few clichés, 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder and familiarity breeds contempt but the camera does not lie.' The top two photographs are especially for you - the lights of Brookend Street looking like a time exposure of the M50.

To be serious though, I may have a somewhat cynical outlook on life but I do actually think Ross-on-Wye's tasteful, if somewhat randomly strung Christmas lights are just one more thing which complement the town's unique natural beauty. I don't enhance the photographs in any way and as I have always said, this is the site which shows it as it is!
