Three Times Lucky - CMHR Tower of Hope "Goes Green" for Global St. Patrick's Day Campaign

Last night I posted a few photographs of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights showing the 'Tower of Hope' lit up GREEN in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. I made those images under blizzard conditions, with the wind howling and snow falling quite heavily.

 

Always persistent in trying to get the best image possible, I woke up this morning at 4 AM and returned to last night's location on the Saint-Boniface Promenade. I hiked down to the waterfront once more, trudging through snow. Conditions had improved but clouds still covered the sky. I made a few more images and returned home. While making coffee, I noticed that the clouds were starting to clear in the western sky and that the full moon was also setting. I drove back downtown for the third time in 12 hours and made the resulting image you see above, including a few more in the accompanying gallery. Unfortunately, the moon had decended behind the clouds by the time I arrived downtown.
