Red on Blue

The annual lantern Festival in Auckland draws tens of thousands of people, all enjoying the Chinese Lunar New Year, the festivities, and the warm Auckland Summer nights. While it's certainly crowded, it's a fun experience and one to enjoy if you're in Auckland in late January or early February. There are quite a few lanterns of different sizes and shapes, ranging from these seen here, to large animals and flowers. In this image, I loved how the deep red of the lantern was offset by the blues in the sky; the warmth of the lanterns against the coolness of a sky painted by the setting sun.
