Tomorrow is the last day of Christmas and traditionally all the festive decorations will be taken down.
Since early December there has been a contemporary Christmas Tree erected outside the University of Suffolk on the Ipswich Waterfront.
Featuring a gradually changing lighting scheme it has attracted plenty of attention and quite a few people have been taking photographs.
It is interesting to see non-traditional displays. This one is all about lighting up the winter evenings as it references a traditional tree without being a chopped down fir.
I saw it being erected and was unsure about its appearance, but once night fell and the lights were switched on I thought the subtly changing colours were rather beautiful.
Christmas is about traditions, but it is pleasing to see new contemporary, festive interpretations too.

I can see why you shared this – gorgeous! Your night shots are really good – I’ve tried and usually failed with night shots so I’m impressed.
Thank you. I have to admit my decade old camera had it’s last moments during the summer and so I replaced it with another much newer version. All though the new one is again secondhand, the improved quality of the camera and a new lens has been a real positive especially in shooting in low light.
Maybe it’s time for me to look at a new one although I’ve always been impressed with your lighting so I think you deserve as much credit as your camera😊
Thank you for your encouraging comment. However, I have to admit it is the little secret of my newish camera – it is so VERY much better at shooting in low light conditions than my old one. My Mum’s favourite artist was Rembrandt so I was brought up to appreciate how a Master works with light.
Oh yes, this seems lovely. No Christmas Tat here.
Surprisingly stylish for Ipswich!!! 😊
I think the tree is enchanting. !!!!
Yes, I think something to be civically proud of. 😊
Looks like a very good take on the tree motif (and lovely photos too).
Thanks – I thought it rather tasty for a town that is often maligned.
Actually I meant tasteful – a bit dippy this afternoon!!
