(photo by Peter Finkle, 2021) “Downtown, where all the lights are bright…” The Ashland Springs Hotel is lit beautifully again this year. (photo by Peter Finkle, 2021) I love the Street Scene sculpture on East Main Street. Here is a unique view of it, after the downtown holiday lights were lit.

(photo by Peter Finkle, 2021) Enjoy this five second Iowa Street Christmas lights video. (by Peter Finkle, 2021) An ecumenical house of lights on Beach Street. (photo by Peter Finkle, 2021) I love this tall tree wrapped with Christmas lights, but I am glad I didn’t have to climb it to do the wrapping. This year, you can find three wrapped tall trees at the corner of South Mountain Avenue and Ivy Lane. (photo by Peter Finkle, 2019) Share Print page 8 Likes

Peter, thank you so much for your beautiful photography and for bringing Ashland to us as we visit family in Los Angeles. We’re going to explore all the streets to find these houses when we get back in town. Thanks for the holiday cheer!

The nighttime photo of the “Street Scene” is breathtaking!

Thanks for the kind words. I was very glad when I spotted that view of the sculpture. It gave me a new way to see it.

Great mix of lighting designs! Sorry you missed me and some of my neighbors on Tolman Creek Road.. I have a mix of vintage and new holiday lights and figurals (I.e. angels, gingerbread guy, polar bear,, frowning penguin, Santa’s, snowmen)..

I am glad you found some that were unusual and fascinating. I try to see “the ordinary” in fresh ways as I take photos around town.
