Northern Lights

As Neil Diamond likes to sing, "Hello again. Hello."

I've been on a blog (and photography) sabbatical for a few months, but I believe it's come to an end now. So if it's alright with you, I'd like to pick up where we left off and start sharing photos, thoughts and stories again here on Via My Viewfinder.

This past weekend, I went to the Kennedy Center to check out their "Nordic Cool" events and exhibits. Each year, the Kennedy Center spends several weeks at the beginning of the year on a different culture.

For 2013, they focused on the Nordic culture and exhibited art, music, dance and other types of artistic performances from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden as well as the territories of Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Áland Islands.

As part of the Nordic Cool festivities, each night the exterior of the Kennedy Center is lit blue and a simulation of the Northern Lights is displayed on its walls. It is a pretty spectacular view from Roosevelt Bridge, which runs alongside the Center, when driving to and from the District. Even up close, as you can see in today's photograph, it is still beautiful.
