Tower Bridge in Sunset Colours
Time to share some fantastic holiday moments which inspired me to do this...
About this creation
I got back from holiday on 15th Jan and have been meaning to do this for a few days.

So with my failing to attain a Tower Bridge through the MOCO's I had resigned the fact I would not own one for a year or two. Turns out Mel had different ideas... She told me I wasn't allowed to buy it and I was very willing to just walk past. Story short she bought it for me by surprise and now I have a bridge to get over my Lego dreaming issues lol.

The photos of the bridge are at the end of this page :)


This is my 30th... 26th birthday.



This was one of my more enjoyable sunsets throughout the 26 days of my holiday. Travelling on the ferry from the South Island to the North Island. We passed this ferry about 20minutes before the sunset.











These next 4 images are of the view of the sun we have from our lounge - we have had 4 of these gorgeous flame red sunsets in a row with another set to happen tonight. This gave me the idea to do the Tower Bridge by sunset.









Finally, lets build a bridge!! Look at all those bags :-O













This is the sunset I used to take the images of the Tower Bridge.


My favourite shot :)

I remember commenting on this yesterday, but my comment was Jimmy Jacked! I blame Phipson...Anyway, great post here, always a treat seeing the builders behind the names enjoying a day of beer, Lego and pleasurable company. Great shot on the sunset pic. Those sunset shots are great as well, almost as good as the ones I remember in Arizona when I was growing up!

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= Happy 30th! Beautiful sunset colours. I've never been on the Interislander, it looks like you got a very tranquil and calm sea that day. The bridge looks gorgeous in that light. Now pull it apart and make a beautiful palace with it.
The ferry is a trip well worth the price, if you get good weather that is. My first trip the sea didn't even have ripples in it. Got a red sky with mirror reflection in the water - AMAZING! Unfortunately my 3.2mp camera couldn't do it justice. Than again, compared to Gods creation who can even do scenery justice? Its great seeing a pic, but nothing is ever as good as being there in the moment :) Thanks Leda, I look forward to your post with night time colouring :)

Quoting Kayne _ First of all, I wondered where you went to so quietly! Happy Birthday, and I was just at Lego Store today drooling over that same set, and had to pass. I had the choice of feeding my kids this month or buying the bridge. The bridge narrowly lost....maybe next month
Hey if they are older than 3 they can fend for themselves :P haha. Thanks :)

Quoting Elderon Eldar Amazing how you captured those colors and how you built the landscape! That must have used up about all your bricks right? And then the ferry! Amazing detail, I can only imagine how much time it cost to give it so much detail! Stunning, just stunning! The Tower Bridge looks a bit simple in comparison, to be honest... No just kidding dude, nice pictures and happy birthday ;), - greetings, Elderon

Amazing skies, dont get any rating from me though because you are supposed to make a page about your own creation here. This doesn't really have anything to do with that.
