Honoring France – Lake Eola Fountain – Orlando, FL

For those that don’t know what or where Lake Eola is, it’s this beautiful lake with a park that surrounds it all. My guess is it’s about a mile walk around the lake. Pretty good size. I’ve photographed at the lake quite a few times but it’s been at least 2-3 years since I’ve done any night photography there. Earlier today, one of the local news stations here in Orlando announced that Lake Eola officials would turn the colored lights in and around the giant fountain in the center of the lake red, white and blue as a tribute and honor to France after the horrible tragedies that occurred during their Bastille Day celebration before. So I ventured downtown Orlando about 9:00 PM Friday night (July 15th, 2016) to see what I could capture in pictures. Here is one of the shots I was able to create.
